New Astro Look
The purpose of this site is to provide information about my old project: V8 conversion and customization of my 1987 Astro minivan. The orginal page began on November 14, 1999, the day I decided to look for an Astro to modify. This van is no longer in my possession but I have left these pages up for your benefit.

new wheels

These pages contain info about my now sold V8 Astro van. It had a ZZ3 Crate motor modded with AFR heads and more. Some links may no longer work. Sorry. You can find out more about V8 conversions to Astro and Safari minivans at
