   Not really. I don't have a problem with driving a minivan. They're
very useful for some things. I just think it's silly trying to make it
macho to make up for a feeling of shame/inadequacy.

Minivans are for woosies.  If I needed cargo space, I'd
get a maxivan.

Chrysler Group is working on a plan to make the soccer-mom minivan
more macho, turning it into something even dad wouldn't mind driving.

For the "man van," Chrysler plans a sportier look than its Grand
Caravan.
Chrysler is calling it the "man van"a special version of its Dodge
Grand Caravanand it is expected to appear at dealerships and be
available for orders within the next few months, according to several
auto dealers briefed on the matter.

There are some interesting comments, both pro and con, here:

I tend to agree that the real pussies are the people for whom a
minivan fits the mission perfectly, but won't drive one and instead
drive an SUV with less cargo capacity, worse handling, and worse gas
mileage, simply because of image.
