My dad saw a Transit sitting on one of those pedestals when we passed a Ford dealer and was like "What the hell is THAT thing?"

Yeah..I know they're big in Europe. Europe..the same place that still makes 60HP cars that sell like mad.
A VAN that has less power than my car just kinda boggles my mind.

I go to college in the Boston area...seeing this on the streets in a couple years will be quite strange. Better than using the Toyota Camrys they have now I guess...

Commitment= attending college
Action= graduating
Dream= graduating college with a new Camaro

Pretty much all the taxis here are the stereotypical Crown Vics..a lot of them old police interceptors.

There are some old Equinoxes as taxis, too.
But I haven't seen many (or any..can't remember) foreign ones around here.

I have one at work for a service van.. it actually isn't as bad as you may think. Pretty peppy for what it is designed to do. Now overload it and yes it will be a dog.
