    Someone should hold a minivan collision derby (what are they called???) ... you know, where cars crash into each other until only one is left running.

    This is going to drive me nuts. I can't think of the term for the type of event where cars crash into each other on purpose. I can't even google for it, becuase I don't know what to google for!

    In that case Dodge Caravans should be lit on fire, and used as obstacles in the arena.

    If you're in a minivan, you're just bout always able to get into the carpool lanes...they'll say "Ahh, he's got 5 in there for sure" :biggrin:

    I don't know about a demolition derby for minivans. One of my friends participates in demolition derbies. Seems to have a lot of fun with it. Right now he's got an old Suburban waiting for an appropriate derby to participate in. I think that would be better than a minivan derby: A full size SUV derby.

    But the real derby I want to see: I think they call it a combine demolition derby. If you don't know, combines are one term for those big farm implements that harvest grain/corn/etc. (Frank from the movie Cars).
