Number 2:

This is my 1989 Plymouth Voyager SE "turbo" Mini Van. . I call this van
"BLUE".  .
I bought her back on 11-19-96 with 57,203 miles.  Blue originally came
from Alburque, NM and she has yet to see any winter driving.  The Van
cam with the following:
2.5 "turbo" motor--3 speed auto on the column--tilt wheel--cruise

Flow Master Muffler and a dump tube--I race either on p205-45r15 Nittos
or I use a set of M/T Slicks mounted on aftermarket rims.  The two rear
seats have been removed as well as the spare tire and jack assembly
(have to save weight).

The times posted below were done about a year ago.  Since then i have
installed a T2 "turbo" along with a 3.0" down tube.  Unfortunately I
lost 2nd gear a week later and the van has been in storage ever since.
I am now working real hard on the Claret Red and doing light stuff to
the Black Cherry Van. I should have BLUE out before the end of summer
(late August/early Sept) and hoping to see some 13.70's with the new
turbo and trans rebuild.

This is the 89 turbo van which I race, and is in the process of doing some heavy modifications to. 14 psi of boost, with slicks on the front! On 10-10-01 ran a best as follows:

660'    9.063
mph   74.15
1320   14.361

Number 3:
The Black Cherry "turbo" Mini Van.

Well Andy (my 16 year old son) and I went to Drag Way 42 on 10-15-02.
This is the last race of the season for us.  Andy was racing MONA (Black
1989 Dodge Caravan. So far we have installed 4 Pizza Rims with
P205-60r15 Cooper
Cobra Tires; Mopar Performance Computer; K&N Air Filter (drop in);
Taylor Spark Plug Wires; a switch to turn the cooling fan on from the
dash; TK7 Fuel and Oil Additives; we use Sunoco 94 Octane fuel; we have
removed both back seats; the spare tire and the jack assembly. Mona has
158,000 on the odo BUT she did get the engine-turbo-transmission all
replaced when she had 69,500 miles by Chrysler.
Here are her BEST numbers to date.

R/T        .504
60'        2.241
330'      6.433
1/8      10.096
MPH   67.76
1000'   13.177
1/4      15.869
MPH   84.56

Note: Everything else is still 100% stock

The van had 153,000 miles on it when I bought it.  The engine, transmission,
and turbo were all replaced under the 7/70 warranty.  So they each have
around 83,000 miles.  I also was given a Mitsu Turbo in the box with
1,000 miles on it.  Every thing works on the van except the a/c.  I
bought it for $650.00 and DROVE it home.

The van has power steering and power front disc brakes, manual front
windows and outside dual mirrors, power rear quarter windows, overhead
console, rear window wiper-washer-defroster, and clear windows. It is
Black Cherry in color. The interior is in great shape and the body is
above average. (some rust)
