The sprinter rocks. It can be tweaked so many ways. And yes, it is pure MB. Several folks just buy the Dodge and then order the grill, badges and steering wheel and guess what...

For off the shelf, I would go Honda Odyssey if you don't want/like the Town and Country. My Sis in Law has a 13yo boy and 10yo twins and they have yet to be able to kill it. That is more than could be said for the Sienna.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Do you always catch yourself glancing at mirrors?

I don't glance. I stare longingly as I search for any sign of my soul, the spark of existence which defines my sense of being. I used to think that I had no reflection until the day that I realized that my outsized proportions overfilled the glass beyond its borders, creating a visual black hole which sucked in any other available source of light.

I once thought I saw LBJ in a mirror but I later realized it was simply an opportunity for someone to make an inappropriate "Johnson administration" reference.

He didn't really do it, the powder did.
