If it's anything like the one I got through my work, see if it rolls away alarmingly when you take your foot off the brake after you shifted out of park

Heavily tint the windows and paint free candy on the side and parking down by the river would be a normal use of a transit van for people that are not contractors.

It was actually a test vehicle they used to develop the engine for the XJ-220.

They sell LS motors like they sell a dozen eggs these days.  I know a guy that puts them into stuff all the time whether it needs one or not.

He crazy.

In the UK Sprinters and Transits are pretty similar in reputation. The Mercedes are nice, but they're not that special. I've driven both.

I know, but the actual stock Transit gets to 60mph in well under 7 seconds. 300hp and 5,000 pounds of van

Oh I agree.  But I'm sure there's always one person who has to ask lol.

My neighbor has the dodge sprinter and it's outfitted for overlanding.  Sweet ride.

I drove one at work for about a year and never opened the storage end of it. A couple weeks ago I traded it to a guy who wanted it (!) for his 2015 Ford some sort of hybrid that still has new car smell.

So, a thin piece of sheet metal, supposedly weather resistant, that will rust through in a year, rattle for 6, and then fall off?

Good job.
