    I used to try to pick up girls with a vehicle that looked a hell of a lot like that.


    Never could figure out why they ran screaming away from such a rad, bitchin' set of wheels.

    So, I just started selling ice cream from it instead.

    isn't it odd that the whole van is amour-ed and hardened against guns and blasts but the windshield was not bulletproof glass?

    except for use by minorities who have different needs and different cultural standards. minorities need to be protected from police who do not realize that random and capricious killings are normal in their cultures and should not be punished for such behaviors. just let them have their space to randomly kill and burn the neighborhoods.

    bet Ford would sell out if they renamed that van The Ford 225 Escapade, outfitted it with factory supplied spinner hubs and chrome-plated armor latches, and listed the equipment as the Baltimore options package.

    This shows a .50 going through 2.5 inches of bullet proof glass.

    isn't the whole point of an armored vehicle to resist 50 cal too? I think you can buy 50 cal at Walmarts in PA, maybe Tx too.

    that "glass" should have been quartzite. it seems thick enough to be.

    The van appears to have ballistic glass all around. (look at the frames)
    Any number of dedicated sniper rounds could penetrate that glass, 50, 338, 416. Probably some smaller calibers as well.
    Guy didn't have a chance against a marksman with the proper tool.

    those frames are why i thought it is quartzite. usually that rock is so heavy that you have to reinforce the window frames to seal against it since the quartzite extends all the way down the firewall and up to the roof header. its like driving with clear granite tombstones in front of you.
