We took our family on a trip this last weekend. Finding a reliable vehicle for long road trips that will seat our large family without breaking the bank has been a struggle. A few months back a generous family member was able to upgrade their vehicle and give us their old clunker, affectionately named “Trusty Rusty.” Another relative even refers to him as the “Miracle Van.”
He’s not much to look at, and has a lot of mileage under his hood. We drove him over 500 miles this weekend without a single problem. I don’t know how, but he gets as good of gas mileage as our economy car of the same age. It was wonderful to be able to be with family for their important event.
