I love that Hiace. What a great surf vehicle.
1994 Buick Centruy Station Wagon $2200
Nice wagon and it is down to 1800, the ad is mistaken in saying RWD, these were FWD cars. I wonder is a 10 footer would fit inside?
If it isn't rusty, pretty cheap to keep running indefinitely.
1992 Honda Accord Wagon
the Ford Flex is a great rig with hella interior room, high dependability ratings, solid awd..rented one for a couple weeks on an east coast winter consulting gig, thought highly of it..can be found for reasonable prices..
Ditto. I drove a rental recently and really liked it. Looks smaller but very spacious inside. 3 rows of seats that fold down flat. Head turning styling. Easy entry in and out (don’t have to step up into it).
Only complaint was the visibility out the back... I’m just not used to trusting backup cameras yet.
For a lot of years I drove a Ford Taurus Station Wagon (2 of them actually, one wouldn't pass California emissions so bought another) , great surf vehicle. Other than head room it had everything I needed, and was a stealth surf van to boot. Put 11 footers inside and still have room to sleep, good gas mileage, comfortable, not a camper but got the job done. Roof rack for when I needed it. I'm a bit of a minimalist, overblown vehicles costing 30k plus don't do it for me, but I'm an old school guy with simple needs. Newer wagons like the one above make sense to me. I still drive a Honda Pilot, will take a 10'6 inside, sleep, all my gear. I've had it since new (2003) and it served as a ski wagon when I worked in the industry for many years in the Rockies and works at the beach. 179k miles, hope it goes to 350k+. Easy-peezey.
I have my eye on this van and if the dealer still has it by spring time may have to make a road trip to Iowa of all places. Look at that interior
If it is in Iowa, you will want undercarriage pictures. Rust is definitely a concern there.
Yea, I know it is in the rust belt and they show no underside photos but for a 1993 having 140,000 miles it may have been a nice weather only van. if still there in a month of so I will get in touch with the Ford dealer. The dealer who sold it in 93, got it back as a trade in recently.
