    Here ya go, get it out of your system. :p

    In my defense...

    We've been over the truck thing enough to know that a pickup won't work, but a van plated as a truck for hauling and equipment is ideal. IE a van plated as a truck isn't a passenger vehicle.

    I understand there is a difference between a pickup truck and a GMC van, but considering they'd both be plated the same if they're used for hauling, equipment or as a work only vehicle (as per the company and how it's insured in Indiana), then it can be called a truck.

    Read about it... then scroll down the the disability plate... I love it.

    BMV: Regular License Plates


    LOL


    Now lets have it, convince me to call it a van and not a truck.

    It won't happen, but I'll have fun watching you try. :D

    You can put a camper or trailer plate on a civic, and guess what, it's still a car.... not a camper.

    you lose.

    Dude just because it has a truck tag it doesn't classify it as a truck. I got a dodge work van and it has a truck tag but its not classified as a truck. I got a seat belt ticket cause i thought the same thing.

    Conclusion: It is certainly a van. But it can properly be called a truck.

    I'm talking about the actual classification they use for the vehicle, not the fucking name smart-ass. Also in case you guys didn't know, most of thos 'vans' out there were built on a truck chassis pretty much up until year 2000 or so.

    :lmao: I have a work van I use for carpentry. Has two seats and has truck tags. Doesn't mean its a truck. It certainly isn't. More like a ford econonoline E-150.

    Um, no you can't legally put a camper or trailer plate on a civic. I guess if you put a bed cover on a pickup, you can call it a van because it's enclosed. :rolleyes:

    My truck is used to haul supplies, not people. It's not a passenger van. It's a work vehicle classified as a truck.

    again, the plate on it does not change what the vehicle is.

    I can put 12 candles on an xmass tree.... that does not make it a Manora (sp?).
    i can out bowling shoes on and go golfing... that does not make them golf spikes.

    my trunk is used to haul 'supplies' not people.


    you lose.


    you drive a van. not a truck.


    now, go pick up some kids at soccer practice :D

    There in lies my point, pastey one. It's not a passenger vehicle. It's not equipped to drive and ride as a passenger van. It's a 2 seat cargo vehicle used for hauling and work purposes. In fact, if I had someone riding in the back'seat' and got pulled over, I'd get ticketed for it.

    *gasp* holy jesus tap dancing christ... isn't that the definition of a ... (dare I say this again?) ... truck?!?! :eek:

    Thanks, now that I've won this, I'll continue calling it a truck and you'll just have to stop commenting on it whenever I say truck.
