This kinda sounds stupid + my auto isn't a truck but here goes anyway...
I just got my license and bought a 93 Chevy Astro cargo van and I
need some driving tips. Since its a cargo van it doesn't have any side
windows except for driver and passenger side doors but it does have a
window in the rear.
When I back out of a parking space its hard to see if there's a car
crossing behind you unless you can see over the car next to you or can
see through its windows. I can back into spaces but when I come home my
street is really jammed and backing into it can be a pain. later when
its cleared up people speed like crazy so its kinda scary because
sometimes you can't see due to of how my space is.
You think i should get one of those round mirrors that hang out in
I've never seen a small van with one of those so I figure there's
another way and i don't want to look retarded.
you're driving a CARGO VAN..........
you're gonna look like a retard, regardless.
Sell the van........and buy yerself something
more "age appropriate". A nice little S10 would
be appropriate. Then you could come on back
in here and talk bout yer new Chevy truck.
But......if yer persist'n on driving that Cargo Van,
and looking like a retard, then stick you one of
them there "AutoZonedOut" bug eye mirrors
on yer side views, and jest be carefull.....that's
bout the best you can hope for.
Won't likely help....but it ain't gonna hurt none
Congrats on yer new license and yer new Van.
Go the speed limit, look both ways, don't drive
drunk.......and don't let none of yer friends talk
you into doing anything stupid...........you don't
want to look like a retard in front of the local
~thinks a 65 year old dude, just getting his
drivers license, is freaking amazing~
