1991 Toyota Previa: The Eggvan

It’s mid-engined! It’s rear-wheel drive! It’s supercharged! It’s an early-’90s Toyota minivan!

If she loves her van so much, why doesn’t she put a little elbow grease in and have the thing at least be mechanically strong? Always wanted to meet someone who loved that egg van though.

Thank you for having these “regular car” videos. We all started our automotive adventure somewhere, so I love this just as much as all the other enthusiast car content.

This is really great. Such a non-descript car, yet the statements she makes are so spot-on. Well done, Petrolicious!

This woman has it right when she says, in effect, that the way to learn to control a car at the limits of traction is to start with a car that does not have much traction (or power) to begin with. 100 or 200 UTQG tires have huge grip right up to the moment when they don’t have any. A tire with firmer compound lets you know that you are in trouble long before you are out of options.

Hey, that was refreshingly good! A great bit of storytelling!

Love it! Some great quotes: ” it is my velveteen rabbit”, and “would you be trading it in with a full tank of gas” really made me laugh. What a cool person.

Such a great video – I saw “1991 Toyota Previa” and though ‘have they gone mad’, but it is one of my favourite videos so far, really captures why we all love our own vehicles so much, irrespective of what they are.

You go girl!
This is such an awesome video. Everything about it, except for the filming, is out of the box. Good job Petro!
