Re: For people who drive vans out there.

It's exciting driving a van with an engine like that, cos the silly billies at the lights go in the right hand lane thinking they can over take If only one could see the looks on thier faces at a van that fast.

LOL! You can't be a *true* van driver, as no self-repsecting one would admit to his van being slow! You know the ones I'm talking about, the ones that hog the third lane on the motorway
