Performance was not the van's forte. The man who delivered it said things like "..and they'll do 90 miles per hour too...." when talking about the aforementioned mobile shed. I think it would only achive this if you pushed it off a particularly high cliff, I was fighting to get above 70 for most of the trip. At least this meant that I was street legal all the way home.
Overtaking was the most interesting part. I'd draw up behind somethng, check the mirror, signal, pull out, hit a teeny tiny hill and then find that I was just about going backwards in the fast lane. With a queue of shiny Mercs and other posh cars fuming behind me. Actually, I quite liked that bit.
