Pick-ups aren't for "shopping", that's what women are for.

A truck can't give you a blowie, though.

Also they're absolutely **** ugly. Trucks, that is, not women

You are less likely to get arrested if she gives you the blowie in the back of a van.

But the police are more likely to stop you if you're in a van - haven't you noticed, whenever the police are hunting someone, they're always driving a van.

In the interests of safety you should be stopped before getting in the back.

In some cases sure but if you are moving equipment that requires the use of a forklift or gantry crane (like the stuff I buy) then a van is more problematic. Can't tow a gooseneck trailer with a van. The good thing about a van is the protection from the elements and lower floor means lower center of gravity for the equipment being transported.

As I've had one (albeit for a short time) I can vouch for this haha.

Standard "yank tank". All of the torque and power when you stamp your foot down on a straight road. Come to a slight corner and you will be clenched to say the least. Body roll is ridiculous, anti roll bar seems like it was made of mild cheddar etc etc.
