Random Thought for Friday, April 29, 2016: Cater-cornered

IMG_20140505_085058Welcome to Friday’s Random Thought.

I started a new job this week and thus I have been gifted the fun of driving in Atlanta Georgia’s real number one item of production…traffic.

No, I am not going to rant about traffic here.  I’ve only just gone back to work at a day job and I’ve not hit that saturation point yet.

I noticed something again that I had nearly forgotten. If someone has the answer to the question I am about to ask, please do contact me. I am really curious.

Did you ever notice that every Ford E-Series Van, also known as the Econoline, is crooked? If you are directly behind one of these vans, while you are both heading straight down the road, look at the driver’s side front wheel. You will notice that is not in direct straight line with the driver’s side read wheel. You will also notice that you can see more of the side of the van that you would normally see with other vehicles when directly behind them.

Normally when you see this it is with a vehicle that has been in a crash, but I first noticed this way back in 1995. I noticed this curiosity when following a van from where I worked.  I began to take notice of all cargo vans that were on the road and I noticed that this trait consistently was present on every Ford Econoline van I saw.

It’s over 20 years later and this brand new van I was behind had just literally pulled off a Ford car dealer’s lot and it’s crooked on the chassis.

Am I the only one seeing this or do I need more sleep?

Happy Friday Everyone!
