    Default Craigslist errors!

    OK, who can guess the two glaring errors in this Clist ad? One is easy, the other not so much (Unless you really know Astro's!)

    Aside from coming with ladder rakes thr front end looks to be of 80's vintage.

    You caught the thing that isn't so obvious (the 85-94 front end), but there is something else VERY wrong!!! The owner must not CARA very much about their VAN!!!

    Yeah, that's not a '99 And it's a Caravan interior, lol.

    For a good ling while (may still be), there was a Celebrity on Autotrader that showed the interior pic of a Mitsubishi or something.

    Unless I can't read, I'm pretty sure it says "Astro" on the door.

    Another thing I found weird. The interior picture shows a yellow van in the background. How can it be the interior of that van if the van they are selling is sitting next to it?

    They both used them, along with 2wd Suburbans and Tahoes/Yukons

    -Also, earlier years had centercaps with lugnuts in them, rather than flat caps.

    ahh ok i wasnt so sure about that. i knew that there was ones on the tahoe/suburban that looked like them, but i didnt think they had that really skinny spoke between the fat ones. learn somethin new everyday, eh? lol
