yeah the director hated the security van that had been organised at the last shoot, so I rang Jackson and he hightailed it to the set in his Mk2, and the day was saved:)

 

Can't say I like anything about the new Transit vans :( Supposed to drive really well etc. but just look like a big Focus to me.......

Only got a rear 3/4 view of the new Transit Custom - from that angle, with the bigger rubber, had a similar stance and proportions to the early Transit.  Not so from the front, as you say, too much of the Ford "family" look and not enough of the Transit's traditional character.

yeah, and FWD on the Custom, not a good thing in a van. Try hooking a big trailer on and towing:(  The "proper" Transit is RWD though, but really big, and not a pretty face either!
