Goodbye Stumbo Van

Today was a sad day as we said goodbye to our old-red-stumb0-van. It has been in the family for many years, it became my husbands car when he was in college, and it was our old trusty until now.

With the addition of a new family member that will require walkers, and maybe other special equipment, we knew we would certainly need a van. Unfortunately, the old-red-stumbo-van did not quite meet the requirements, so sadly we said goodbye.

We are getting an upgrade, a 2001 Ford Windstar with only 80,000 some miles! Now remember, our good old trusty red-stumbo-van had over 250,000 miles! What a faithful little (not so little) car!

If you have known us for long, then you also know the Stumbo van.


  1. awww I am so attached to my car too! the hood broke on the freeway and came flying up and was damaged, but we are repairing it because he only has 176,000 miles on it and he's a volvo! haha. so I feel your pain, but I can't wait to get your sweet girl home!

  2. I drive an 01 windstar and before that a 95 windstar. I LOVE my windstars. I hope you love yours. I only wish they still made them so I could get another. but then we need more seats so we will likely have to get a new van that seats all. right now we cant get everyone in at the same time.

  3. Oh, my! I do remember that van! :)

  4. no!!! not the stumbo van!!! what are we ever going to do with out that thing!!! oh least i wont get stuck multiple times and have to climb out the drivers door...haha

  5. Funny. I hope your husband let go before you sold it. :-)

  6. It's hard to believe it's really the end of the Stumbo van. It's been around for so long... I can't help but think it must have been sad to say goodbye to you guys.

  7. I can't believe you're getting rid of that van. I even remember that van!! Good time!!

  8. Oh my Lord, that is hysterical.
