Nice title Herb, very fitting.

You'll need that Recaro for all the cornering G's you'll be pulling in that bad boy too!

Make me think what a German circus clown car would look like.

Agreed! Sprinters (at least to me) look oddly proportioned no matter what model year. But obviously, they are a highly capable and versatile vehicle.

One place I worked for had a couple of them for doing deliveries of paper products. The delivery drivers always preferred to take the Sprinters when they had to make drops in downtown Washington, DC, where streets are tight and other drivers impatient.

The Sprinters could swallow shipping pallets with ease, got great MPGs, and the turning radius was amazingly tight. All things that the older Chevy and Ford full-size vans in the fleet couldn't do as well.
