  • Affordable Starter Vans....

    Because Velocity Technologies Equipment will fit in most Mini-Vans...This is just an effort to help those who are just starting out, but do not already have a Van; figure out which Mini-Van to go with.

    Check out this Van!

    To me, this would be a great Van for a Start-Up CC, it's not to small, not to big and plenty of Power with the 4.3-Vortec V-6!

    Just thought I'd send you an example of some of the Vans that are out there at reasonable prices!

    Throw a few business magnets with logo on it and when you can...vinyl it!

    Thank-YOU!

    Honda Odyssey Vans...

    For those that prefer an Import...the Honda Odyssey is a great Van, as long as you get a Second Generation or newer!

    The first Generation came only with a 4-cyl. and was strongly based on the Accord Platform...sharing it's suspension namely!

    The Second Generation Odyssey introduced a dedicated Van Platform, more room and V-6 Power!

    So, you may want to avoid years 1995-1998!

    More information for you:

    Thank-YOU!

      Ford Freestar Mini-Van....

      I measured one of these the other day...

      Don't remember the exact specs, but would be an excellent Van for the V-TECH LINE-UP!

      They also have large V-6 Engines available!

      I will post the Specs on the Freestar asap!

      Thank-YOU!

        How payload works....

        Hopefully this will help you to figure out which Mini-Van will work best for you and your Equipment!

        http://auto.howstuffworks.com/auto-p.../payload15.htm

        http://ask.cars.com/2009/09/which-mi...how-much-.html

        My suggestions:

        -NOTHING SMALLER THAN A 3.0 V-6!

        -BE SURE TO GET A CARFAX REPORT WHEN BUYING USED!

        -ASK ABOUT SERVICE RECORDS!

        -HAVE VAN CHECKED OUT BY AFFORDABLE MECHANIC!

        -ASK THE LAST TIME THE TRANSMISSION WAS FULLY SERVICED...IF THEY DON'T KNOW, HAVE IT DONE!!!!

        -DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH YOU ARE GOING TO CARRY, YOU MAY WANT TO CHANGE OUT THE REAR SHOCKS/SPRINGS TO A MORE HEAVY-DUTY KIND!

        -PROPERLY FLUSH RADIATOR!

        -RUN THE BEST OIL FOR TIME OF YEAR!

        Thank-YOU!

          Thank-YOU!
