Wow, what a bunch!  Do you get to drive them all?  If so, do they all drive differently in some way?  The Mercs I mean, although maybe the transit is very similar anyway?  Do big companies like DHL have their own mechanics and garage facilities?

Saw a little Nemo-esque Renault the other day.  All white.  Also my cousin drove an Enterprise Transit over on Weds to do some removals here.  But I only loaded it  - didn't go for a spin in it.

Current car-music is "The Whirlwind" by Transatlantic.  Is it just me or does that LP sound much flatter than "Bridge Across Forever"?  You know, like the keyboards were just plugged straight in to the desk and are using fairly standard sounds?  Can't fail the performances or songwriting, but sonically it's lacking in excitement for me.

As I don't technically work for DHL, then I only get to drive the odd spare van.
There are slight differences between the vans but only in the same way 2 Mondeos would be different.
There's not a great deal between the vans but the Mercs are slightly better equipped.
UPS have their own mechanics, DHL, don't appear to.
Some of our vans are owned, some on HP. We should have picked up a couple of new VW crafters yesterday but the dealer cocked up the paperwork. Photos when we get the vans

Magnificooooooooh!  I was thinking about vans just yesterday.

Now, the Transit looks quite similar to the big Mercedes to me.  Do you know if they share any components?  I have a mate who knows all the bits that cars share nowadays.  Door handles, floorpans etc.  My little C1 is very similar to the Peugeot 107 and Toyota Aygo for example.
