Cripes. We're about to march across the United States, ford the North Atlantic, and roll heads over at Ford Europe. Some numbskull has decided that the stillborn C100 racer chassis underneath the Supervan 2 is somehow more important than the coolest van this side of B.A.'s GMC. As such, the Transit bodyshell will be removed and the vehicle will be restored to its original form for vintage competition. But who gives a flying toss about a Group C car that never turned a wheel in anger? We have a freaking Supervan Matchbox car. We beg of you, Ford, do not do this. Do so, and we will cut you. You've been warned, wrongheaded dummkopfs. You've been warned.

This reminds me of the Renault Espace from back in the day that was built on an F1 platform.

Hey, while I'm here and not doing my day job...a few suggestions for posts, building on some recent topics here on J-nik:

• The Matchbox vs. Hotwheels question

• The related "most precious model car evah?"

• A guide to spotting Po-Pos behind you using only their headlight patterns
