Waiting on the Pacifica Limited with black leather to order.

So... I guess you could say I'm a car guy, but I think plenty of other respondents have showed the same.
The Pacifica fills a necessary spot in the family but isn't the only car.

As of right now I have no toys

I was going to hot rod up my impala, but it's proving to be a typical teenager with an attitude so I'm actually going to replace it. Probably with an srt10 RAM.

I do have an 80s era Kawasaki 454 limited collecting dust.

All other projects on hold until we get into a better house though.

Definitely a car family here.
Me:08 BMW M3 traded in for 13 Porsche Boxster S (purchased 2 months before we found out we were having a surprise baby) traded in for a 14 Cadillac CTS V sport (to make room for said baby)
Wife: 06 BMW 325i traded in for a 12 Ford Focus Titanium traded in for a 14 Ford Focus ST, getting traded for the Pacifica so I can drive the Cadillac.
We also have a 1994 Toyota Landcruiser for the Dogs (the original kids).

I'm a car guy but I've had 4 previous minivans (all Siennas) before picking up my 2017 Pacifica Limited this week. With the stow-away seats, its the ultimate high tech/high comfort cargo van. Plus it qualifies for Section 179 depreciation for my business with a GVWR of over 6000 lbs (the Sienna comes in a 5995 lbs).

I've never had a Chrysler before (hope this wasn't a mistake)....here's a snipet of a previous FCA product in my garage back in 2003....any guesses?

Ferrari F40. Technically no longer an FCA product. They were sold last year. If that's yours,I was wondering if you had room for one more friend. 😀

Smart guy. I've done some work for FNA over the years and became friends with the technical services manager at their NJ HQ. He purchased this car to resell and I stored it at my place for 8 months. As a high end garage designer, it was a great prop for photo shoots. Fast car, even by today's standards 25 years later.

That's awesome. Thank you for posting a pic. My all time favorite poster car growing up. I've only seen one on the freeway. Amazing car. Just saw a snippet last week on a car site of one that caught fire and burnt to a crisp after a full restoration...broke my heart to see the charred remains. It must have been awesome for you to drive/ drive in one.
