I googled "custom Nissan van" images and apparently it is impossible to make them look cool, but I have to say the Sprinter and Promaster vans aren't exactly beautiful either.

The side profile of the Nissan van looks like Snoopy's head.

The guys on "American Pickers" got a new Transit, they're sponsored by Ford. They put all the specs up on the Ford website finally, too.

How are you liking the Promaster so far? I'm looking at replacing my 2005 GMC and thinking something diesel for the fuel savings and Sprinter and Promaster are considerations.


Like it very much, so far. I have the gas engine and I am getting an 18 mpg average. Compared to the Sprinter, mine is shorter, but since it is wider, I actually have more cargo space. Ford is coming out with a similar vehicle, so you have another option there.

If you are more than 6 feet, be aware that, taller people have a visibility issue with the Promaster.

Anyways, here's what my PM now looks like:

I'm not really driving it... just being the winter-time custodian of Casey's van... and annoying all the neighbors by parking it in San Francisco Twisted Evil

There is nothing cool about those Nissan vans. They are so incredibly fugly it's insane. They are practical and comfortable to drive though, but NOT cool.
