See a better way to drive a van that isn't creepy?


  1. It's kinda cool. Reminds me of a cross between a Volkswagen Vanagon and a Toyota Space Van. With an el-cheapo Maaco paint job. Heh.

    1. This would make a great start for an odd-ball camper van build.

  2. Lots of people are stuck in third

  3. is this early MB sprinter FWD?

  4. Wow. Only 340,000 km on the odo.

    MBZ geeks... any idea what the diesel 4 banger puts out? 42, maybe 43 horsepower?

    My favorite, by far, are the aerodynamics. Just imagine how fast a passing semi could make this piece of automotive sculpture take flight. Wheeee!

    Who needs a track day car when every mile of roadway offers this kind of excitement?

    -Stan (the *other* Stan...)

  5. Parts available on the internet. You don't say?
