      From reading various posts over the years, it seems that a lot of people either own, have owned, or know somebody that owns an Aerostar. A lot of people use them for parts to repair their Ranger, Explorer, etc. I have an 88, 89, 93, 95, and 96. What does everybody else have?

      My parents had a '96 for several years. They replaced it in '03 with an Explorer Limited, shortly after I bought my Explorer. (I guess I was a bad influence) :p:

      Firezapper, the red extended one above looks like an 89-91 model. What year is it? The front grill is an 88, and the rims, and bumpers are an 89. The headlights, and parking lights are 86-91.

      When I was in high shool a friend of mine had a extended one they he took all the seats out of and it had a 4.0 in it. It hauled ass!!!! We beat the crap out of it and then it burnt to the ground one day:(

      One of the great things about the Areostars is that the parts (like motors and transmissions!) fit Rangers and Explorers, and they are hardly ever picked over at the pull-a-part. People leave the vans alone, 'cause they're more difficult. Can't just reach under the hood.

      My mom picked up her aerostar yesterday, and it is a 93 Eddie, with what's called "Electronic 4X4" that what it says on both fenders and I believe its like the Control Trac, it only kicks in when a wheel spins, because it don't have a selector for the 4X4.

      Any of you seen the green 5.0 302 Aerostar? It's a good lookin van. The owners put alot of time and money into that thing. Seen it at a couple car shows around here.

      Nope...the times I seen it, I didn't have a pic. phone and I haven't seen it at all this year. All I can say is it is like the Aerostar Green, with I believe purple pinstripe or has some detail of purple on it. The one show they had a pic album of the work and I think it started out as brown, it looked pretty crappy in the beginning
