When it’s time for a vehicle to hit the junkyard, with no doubt about whether or not it’s necessary, how should you go about it? Do you let the rollback appear, hook the bumper of the sad pile of metal that was once somebody’s brand-new pride and joy, and let it take it’s final ride unceremoniously, or do you give that beater one final farewell in a full-on blaze of glory so that when the rollback does come to haul the wreck to it’s final stop before that used car lot in the sky, there are no regrets about the task whatsoever? All cars must die, but not every one gets to truly live. Take this 1993 Ford Aerostar. It’s obvious that in the short lifespan this vehicle lived (the video comes from 2009, so that would be sixteen years) that time just was not kind. But the V6 is still running and initially, the plan was to road-trip this pile of rust. Then the crew got bored and Frank the Aerostar here became legendary. The van is drifted, rolled, jumped and beat on until the doors are hanging off and the tailgate is swinging by a wire. As body panels fall off, glass breaks, suspension components fail and yet, somehow, the little six is still going strong, you know that you made the right choice in picking a cheap beater. And we don’t doubt that when this Aerostar was finally hauled off to be squished into a little green pancake, that there was genuine sadness as it was hauled off.
