I think a 6x12 trailer will be adequate for a storage shed, and Doge actually can tow it. $1950, factory direct.

It would be interesting to see the stats: e.g. how many million Americans die every year doing say 40 in a 35 limit.

So I drive a 35mph road to work, single lane both directions, it's hilly and a little windy but most do 45mph. There's been an undercover car there in the mornings, half of the time sitting waiting, the other half already got someone.

On base they bumped up one of the main roads (4 lanes with turn lanes at most instersections) from 35 to 40mph and everyone seems to do 38. Until speed drops to 30, then they do 38. :rage:

One thing I forgot to mention were the BRAKES.

Horribly weak and practically ineffective. This thing had drum brakes and their stopping power was so poor. You literally had to push the brakes to the max in order to get any sort of “stopping power” out of them. Good thing I always kept a safety distance from the cars in front of me.

Sounds about right. VW Beetles had OK brakes but the vans weight twice as much.

Except when you have to deal with all the bullshit paper work from German insurance companies...  :thumbsup:

Really? In Merica, old cars cost about $50/year to insure.

Older vehicles makes for a much more exciting driving experience.

I know it isn't the same van, but it made me think of this...
