Ok.

An old station wagon with a built-up motor.

I'll take the LS1 Vette with all-around performance, fuel efficiency, and good looks.

ummm, no, there was a thread regarding those vans about quite awhile ago in which you were also corrected iirc. (edit: no offense meant) The caravan had an engine (2.5) that was already turbocharged, and that engine was a mitsu. They (fast vans) are fun to play with, but the handling, balance, and what not sucks to the point of being scary sometimes.

Edit: Almost exactly a year ago...http://forum.soundillusions.net/showthread.php?t=40141

VincentR,

You do that, but don't let me catch you at a stoplight cause I'll toast your plastic junk!!

Wagon is a street cruiser for me and my 4 sons. BB Chevy with spray that goes low 9's and is driven anywhere. Just wanted to share my toy....I know it's not for everyone.
