It's the Cadillac of mini-vans

My transformation to the dark side is nearly complete. We’re about to buy… a mini-van.

But it’s actually one friggen’ cool mini-van.

We put a deposit down on a Honda Odessey 2005 about a month ago (they haven’t been released yet — many thanks to eagle-eyed Stuart C. for finding a preview article about the ‘05 Odyssey in a magazine and giving us the tip!). We weren’t expecting it until the end of the month or so. However, our sales guy called this morning and said that due to hurricane Ivan, Honda shipped all the Odesseys out of their Alabama production plant waaaaay early, so our dealer has taken a shipment of 4 already. I went to see it today — woof. Lotsa family-truckster-friendly features. Lots of them. I mean, lots of them!

They don’t want to sell those 4 until some more new ones arrive (they need to have stuff to display in the showroom). Since we already put money down, we’re literally at the top of the waiting list, so it looks like we will be Louisville’s first Odyssey ‘05 (touring edition) owner early- to mid-next week when the next touring edition model arrives at the dealer. Oh yes, it will be mine.

I won’t bother repeating all the details that are on the Honda site mentioned above (google around; there’s lots of speculation and facts available), but suffice it to say that it’s a mini-van that feels like a Acura.

The munchkins will be driven around in style.
