My In-Laws bought the beautiful van off the showroom floor at the Cadillac/GMC dealership. I had a family of four and they adopted a little girl four years older than my oldest. With all my energy, I was always borrowing the van from my dad to take all the kids to the beach, the zoo, to parks. As the kids grew older, this was the perfect automobile for every adventure, including concerts at Galveston beach, where we put our chairs on top of the van and the kids layed on blankies there too. As they grew older still, it became the center of attention for all their friends who wanted a changing room, the perfect music area with doors open, and the snackmobile. The greatest thing I soon found out was how many kayaks, surfboards, sport equipment, coolers, and kids we could fit on top and in the Scoopy-Do wagon. My In-Laws bought many other vehicles, but still kept the van in the garage for us. My father-in-law suddenly died some years back..I could hardly drag myself to the reading of the will. I asked my mom if I could leave early. When I got home the van was in the driveway, which I thought had brought family to my house. When Mom got there, she handed me the keys and said Dad left it to me in his will--that he always enjoyed helping pack for our adventures and seeing all of us off. I am 59 years old now and have come a long way from my 900 sq ft house and small cars. The van occupies its place in a 1600 sq ft garage among other really nice cars and trucks and knows it is equally important. My grandkids love it as much as my kids did. Here we go again on trips to the zoo, beach, ranch, and other adventures. Dealer maintained on schedule, it still runs beautifully. I have been offered so much money for it, but those people are crazy to think I would sell my history mobile at any price. Thank you Dad and GMC.
