CC Outtake: The Odd Couple – Do They Have Anything In Common?

Nothing like a good strong walk to revive the spirits, especially when you take a different route and find a couple of characters you’ve never seen before. These two somehow struck me as an odd pairing, although for no really particular reason. I remember a comment from a couple of days ago yearning for a gen1 E-Line, so here it is. Looking at these two, I got to thinking: are they really so odd? What do they share in common? There must be something..

The closest I could come up with was that the Quantum had 2.2 L engine, and the original Econoline had a 2.3 L (144 CID) engine. Is there something closer than that?
