Christ a cold air intake and altezza's are worth more then the Van.
Seriously! No, Really! You really think a company is going to make Altezza's
for a 15 year old Van? How many 89's are still on the road. Maybe 10,000.
Out of which how many want to add dumb ass Altezza's for taillights. Oh, yes
a nice cold air intake so I can spool up my oil burning 3.0 Liter and chirp
the tires on some sand. P.S. You can make your own Intake! Oh, and if you
googled for it you can probably find how to do it!

Actually, there was a nice GE kit available for the Caravan that looked
pretty nice, esp in white. It wasn't too much, and really improved the
looks of the vehicle.
I think they're about $500 for this model (yeah...I did look into
it...what I was going to do was cut mine down and turn it into a 'pickup',
like the Deora from the 60's...)
Here's the real thing:
the way i see if your gonna pimp something be original, as far as the tail
lighjts im gonna cover them with Vynal that i have cut a pattern out of ya
know bling bling

I think that a caravan being pimped will be far more cooler than an old
impala, for the simple reason the older cars should be restored to original,
not pimped out, they loose their originality, how many of those are left?
certainly not as many as there are caravans.
There was a ground effects company from Canada, that had alot of ground
effects stuff for older vehicles. I cannot remember the name of the company
though. I believe they were in Edmonton, Alberta. You can try to Goolge.
Also try Erebuni. They have some Clearance special on Running boards that

You may not be able to find a facia for such an old one, but the side
mouldings should work, since the body sides are about the same.
Hopefully, you'll be able to find a whole new facis (I thought the pre
'92's were UGGGG-LYYYY!)

OK....I can understand a Civic...a Mazda 3...a Scion tC
but an EIGHTY NINE CARAVAN?????
OK...actually the Cold Air may improve performance JUST barely noticable,
and may actually improve fuel economy.
But the Altezza tail lights? I hope you're REALLY doing this thing up, and
I wanna see a pic when you get done...
Actually, what a friend of mine did for an LHS:
went to E-bay
bought generic mandrel-bent tube.
Drilled a hole for a sensor to accomodate the sensor and a gasket.
Ordered an air filter.
Assembled the whole mess and had himself a cold air intake.
Worked pretty well, and cost him all of $12...
I've got one on my 87, just a longer pipe on it basically, guy who
owned it before me put it on. he even did the stupid hole for a 90mm
fan (and mounted the fan) into the computer box (and the fan don't
work, BUT at least i don't have to worry about sucking up water)
Just got a 99 T+C instead today (well, pick up on friday) and to be
honest, i'm glad. Damned old thing never ran well when the temp was
over 50F, and in eorgia, thats a lot of the time.
