      I think so, as long as they are American brand cars....

        Chevrolet is american, So I'll just go for it.

        This is my Dad's Chevrolet G30 Starcraft Legacy Series Conversionvan,1998. For those who has a little knowledge of the 6.2 and 6.5 diesels, you know they will tow pretty much everything you want to bring on the road.
        Only sad thing about this van, is that it is not a 4wd/awd.Not good in Northern Norway at winter.







        My Uncle's 1993 Starcraft Sl Brougham , a 6.2 diesel(163hp). American Conversionvans are awsome



        And a random Starcraft GL series.

          I remember in my childhood, they used to have car shows in May-June in Trondheim, where vans like these were on display. Some of them were really sought after art works I recall. Don`t see much of them now anymore.

          What is the mileage fuel consumption on that thing?

            The mileage fuel consumption depends very much of what kind of driving.
            At long road trips(example HArstad-Sandnessjøen) it is at about 1.1-1.5 Litres pr 10 kilometers(or a Scandinavian "Mil").
            At short driving in cold weather like winter, you'll easily use 1.7 pr mil.

            Since they are Diesels, they aren't too expensive to drive,but after year 2000, GM pretty much ended their 6.5 diesel production and began making petrol(or ordinary gas) engines.
            In the US,I'm sure it was a good idea since Diesel is the most expensive fuel over there, but in most other countries-like Norway, it was'nt smart at all.
            The Diesels was not an very economical ride in the first place(Costs about 1420 kroner for 130 liters of diesel, or full tank). Big cars without diesels....well...I heard about a man who started crying when getting gas for his Chevrolet Avalanche...

                Long ago my parents had a Chevy van with the 6.2l diesel. A 1986 model I think. What a dog. By the time I started driving it some it badly needed new injectors and you could see the trail of black smoke when trying to climb a hill.

                  My dad's old 1992 Ford Econoline (E350) Cyclops Cruiser Conversionvan.(7.3 litre 185 hp(?) diesel)



                  And the E350 and my Uncle's old Chevy van, probably a model from the mid/late 80's.(finger-prints on the Ford :'( )



                  I think I've said it before, but the american Conversion Vans must be about the best long trip/vacation cars you'll find

                      "This is a Chevy.

                      You have too worship it, drive it, wash it and take care of it, or else it will punish you with rust."

                        This is one way to completely restore a Dodge van, from a wreck to a limousine:

                          This is how the big american diesel sounds music in my ears
                          (If you have some sort of surround sound system or other speakers to connect to, this will sound a lot better than on the computer speakers)

                            Finally I managed to track down our old Ford Econoline. I knew it was in the Finnsnes/Silsand area, so I sat down with googlemaps and started the search. I didnt expect to find it but suddenly it appeared in the bushes on the right side of the road. I'm not a stalker in any way, but I really love this car
