  4. Looking for good van for my NEMT business

    I want to start my own premium NEMT business (see more http://transitexec.com/what-is-a-paratransit-service/ ) and looking for a good vehicle for every day usage. Is used Toyota vans good for my needs or something like Honda vans will be better? I'm planning to grow my business, so I want to use long-running cars.

    Thanks!

  5. Need to find a good mechanic in Minnesota

    Hey everybody, just got my first Toyota van! Its a 1987 Toyota Van LE with 4wd

    The guy I bought it from told me that it portably just needed a new battery- But I just discovered that it has a blown head gasket :(

    I'm not confident enough in my mechanical skills to attempt to fix it myself, and would love to find someone to hire in the Minnesota area- (I'm in Minneapolis)

    any ideas or advice would be very helpful!

    Thanks much,

    Max
