Some Of The Most Suspicious Vans


A van is a kind of vehicle used fortransporting goods or groups of people. In British usage, it can be either specially designed or based on a saloon/sedan car, the latter type often including derivatives with open backs (such as pick-up trucks). There are vans in all shapes and sizes, ranging from the classic van version of the tinyMini to the five metre long (LWB) variants of the Mercedes Sprinter van. Vehicles larger than this are classified as lorries (trucks). The word van is a shortened version of the word caravan, which originally meant a covered vehicle. The word van has slightly different, but overlapping, meanings in different forms of English. While the word always applies to boxy cargo vans, the most major differences in usage are found between the different English-speaking countries. British English speakers will generally refer to a passenger minivan as apeople-carrier or MPV, or multi-purpose vehicle, and a larger passenger van as a minibus. Ford makes a distinct line of vans with short bonnets (hoods) and varying body sizes. Minivans are the same vans but smaller. The driver’s mate of a delivery van was sometimes referred to as a “vanguard.”The Sun newspaper introduced the idea of “White Van Man”, a typical working classman or small business owner who would have a white Ford Transit, Mercedes Sprinteror similar panel van.
