What Do They Have In Their Vans?

We drove up to Durham today to deposit number one son back amongst his studies. On the way we drove past loads of RAC vans. In the old days (I can talk about the old days now because I am officially old) an RAC van was a little affair. Nowadays the vans are enormous.

I wonder why they are so big. It is not as if new cars can be repaired. All the old cars needed was a pair ofold tights and a wad of chewing gum to get them working again when something broke. New cars might as well not have bonnets for all the good you can do mending them if they go wrong. Perhaps the vans hold complete new cars which they can assemble at the kerbside if yours fails.
