Narrowing The Chase
Posted at 11:51 PM


Dale got a molar yanked a couple days back somewhere out by Powell and 82nd. Tough intersection. A whole ‘nother story. Anyhoo, he was out there with a face the size of a medicine ball and needed a ride back. I went out and we hit up a car lot full of used cargo vans.

Some narrowing of the chase:

- V8. I mean, for sure. Why not, right? Jim Felt set me straight on this one.
- Passenger van. Not even a question.
- Can’t do the extended ones. Little too big.
- Gotta have the air conditioning in the back.
- Leather seats would be incredible.
- It’s gotta be a Ford. Sorry, Uncle Bob. (He’s a General Motors man.)

Dale and I took a spin in one, and it felt pretty good. Lots of room in those things.

AS SUSPICIOUS AS POSSIBLE: Suspicious vans. So good. Sent in by Todd Piper-Hauswirth back in Minneapolis, who gambled on me back in 1999 and let me come on board the CSA scanning train. Thanks, again. One of my favorite designers, ever.

Now, I thought you needed this thing to haul cargo. Passenger seating will just be in the way. If you start hauling passengers you’re going to need windows. Then people are going to be able to see your cargo. That will entail dealing with thugs. Next thing you know it’ll be body armor and weapons. Oh man your in over your head drap.
