If you’ve never bought a beater car for the sake of doing so, you’re missing out on one of the great joys of motoring. These cars offer up a level of freedom seldom seen in today’s automotive world. They let us park where we want, drive over anything and at days end, drive like complete hoons in the appropriate arenas. This 1993 Ford Aerostar minivan is a perfect example of that. Bought for the paltry sum of $300.00, “Frank the Tank” as it was aptly named, brought nothing but fun and joy to these four friends. Plus, it show them (and the rest of us) that the Ford Aerostar minivan is a far more capable vehicle than originally anticipated.
