The age of the fullsize body-on-frame family van is very much over. Do you mourn its passing?

There's no real reason for the American market to have a trucklike van. Our roads are pretty smooth, all things considered. There aren't many times that a person would be thankful about owning something like an old Astro van as opposed to, say, a more efficient modern Caravan.

But maybe you miss the potential ruggedness of an old big van, V8 and rear-wheel drive and all. Do you long for old school vanning?
