Smile New Ride! 1995 GMC Rally STX Van!

Got this van from my grandpa he gifted it to me because he said I could get more use out of it then he can anymore! it's a 1995 with the 5.7L V8 with around 200,000 miles, still runs good though, it's not to bad for a 21 year old van although it has its flaws with going through 21 years worth of winters. Right now I'm working on getting all the exterior lights to work, then with my Dad's help we'll be working on the suspension alittle to get it ready for the trip down to ETF next month and it's yearly inspection that's also due next month. I plan on maintaining this van myself as much as possible and it will also teach me more about fixing cars. I will post updats about things I replace/fix on it. Now I just have to think of a name for it! Any ideas?

You could call it "Sherman". That's what I called my full-size dodge van when I had it. It felt like a sherman tank; it would go anywhere (until the frame broke, lol).

It's had some body work done, but the under side is still good and the body is not to bad, The worst part is by the windshield and the bottom of some of the doors. And it's definitely a gas hog Lol but gas is cheap right now so I don't mind
