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


Or are permanently blind or visually impaired.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

No. If ford, or GMC calls it a van. Then its a van regardless of what you license it as. Unless you hack off the back half of the covered area then its called a van. Specifically a Cargo Van.




Don't believe me, go ask your GMC sales person you bought your savanna from.
Maybe GMC | 2009 Savana Cargo Van: Features, Photos, Accessories can clear this up for you.






The all knowing dmv licenses it as a truck because they don't have a tab or substandard for exceptions that don't fit like CARGO VANS.




EDIT: If you find anywhere on GMC's website where they call this cargo van as a "truck" then I will UPS you a fucking cookie.
