....Happy new Ford Transit van day that is.
 
 
It was a tough call, but to avoid paying thousands in anticipated repairs for the aging Subaru Baja, I finally went and traded her in.
 
The local Ford dealer (over there in Decatur, Alabama) handled everything wonderfully and admirably, and I am finally driving the vehicle I have coveted for many years now.
 
The Ford Transit Van.
 
The all-purpose music gear hauling rig.
An iconic beast, one that I admired while living in Germany in the 1980's and later on in the 1990's.
 
A smooth-riding cargo van with an ultra-modern two-seat cockpit.
 
The Capshaw Road band will now be playing gigs with dry, secure gear, instead of wet, precariously-loaded gear.
 
My beloved Subaru, I will love you forever.
And you served us well.
 
I wish for you all the best that life has to offer.
But I'm rocking the small white serial killer van now.
 
Life is good.

🙂

I'm not a fan of vans, but you can pull it off if you've got a Mazda MX5 Miata (am I correct?) parked next to the van in the garage.

I saw one of these about 7 years ago on a Ford dealer's lot and asked what it was.  The van was assembled in Turkey at that time with an engine put together in Spain.  When I asked the salesman about it all he had to say was every one of that they get when they unpack it from shipping they all smelled a little like dog ****.  I said "have you ever been to Turkey?  The whole country smells like dog ****."

Hope you enjoy it and it serves it's purpose well.
