I pretty much love all vans. Literally, it is a sickness how much I love vans sometimes. Of course there are a few hideous ones out there, mainly the most recent entries from many auto manufactures. But for the most part, if I see a van, I will love it. I have a special affliction for older vans because they carry the most character in my eyes. Toyota vans have a special place in my heart, but most of that space is taken up by the Estima/Previa. But I may just have to make some room for this TownAce.
Yeah, these things are pretty ugly and pretty undesirable, but I really like them because of that. This one is very simple and clean. I like how it looks stock and very unassuming. A lot of atime and money must have gone into this van. I know if I actually do see any of these, they are usually beaten and destroyed so it is good to see a few of these bieng saved and restored.
