As some retirees are prone to do, my parents have been trying to see how quickly they can fill the pages of their passports. This is terrific, as I am attempting to train them on the finer points of car-spotting. These pictures were taken in June at various locations in Iceland.
This first van isn’t your ordinary 15 passenger E-350. This diesel powered van has been converted to four-wheel drive and is a tour vehicle that crawled and snaked its way over some very rugged terrain.
This picture of a stretched Ford Excursion should give you a better idea of how the E-350 had been modified. I cropped out a piece of one of these from the top picture, but height is comparable between the two.
Are these vans or are they busses? Is there really a huge difference? Either way, this pair of Mercedes people movers seem to be hard at work in rural Iceland. The background does make for a nice picture.
My parents are on the prowl again; let’s hope they find some good subject matter.
