Mitt Romney Trades In Mustang For 15-Passenger Van In Worst Swap Ever

Remember Mitt Romney? That fellow who ran for president a few times? Well, his wife got him a Mustang Convertible in 2005 as a gift. But Mitt just traded it in, not for a new GT500, but for an Econoline van. Cool?

Romney traded in the Mustang the other day for the Econoline. He didn't publicize that he was doing it or anything, he just showed up. Probably because he didn't want people to know he was turning in his pony car card to become a van man.

The trade does make sense. Romney has enough people in his family to form his own sovereign nation, so the big Econoline should help transport them across borders easily.

And I'm not going to knock a big van. When I was racing karts, we used a 15-passenger Ram 350 van to get the karts to the track. Although I doubt Romney is using the van as a race support vehicle, it is a useful way to get a battalion of people from point a to point b.

Still, why trade in a Mustang for it? Why not one of the other cars in his garage? He surely has so many others.

Al Gore drives around in a Hybrid = 34 mpg x 1 person = 34 mpg.

Romney's V8 van = 10 mpg x 15 persons = 150 mpg equivalent.

Who's wise and who's a poser?

Hahaha. Nice way to look at it.

But Rommeny didn't event the internet!
Or defeat man-bear-pig!
And he certainly never rode the MIGHTY MOON WORM!

Ever hear that song "Chevy Van" 1975? Some might not think of them as nerdy. Does it have a Disco Ball inside?

The math is sound, a person on a moped gets 50 mpg, while 4 in a Honda at 35 mpg get 140 adjusted mpg, and a Clown car is off the hook!

Assuming all 15 of his passengers know how to drive, and own vehicles... And that he drives his van around with 15 people in it at all times.

You don't get it. Why would they own or need to drive. Yes they would have to all get into the same vehicle. It's saves fuel to carpool. So in - are you trying to drive me crazy?
Your too late, as some in the "The Worlds Longest Thread with Retro Titling" would say.

I don't think Romney gives a F about a Mustang, he didn't buy the one he traded on his own...
