      Dang- you already got snow?

      And maybe Fiat is considering a Ducato based Ram Van since the old Ram Van was killed off and Dodge lost the Sprinter.

      Doesn't that look like a Sprinter van? Any full side shots?
      Oh, btw, you are being paged in the ST thread.

      Nice

      IIRC, I believe these are coming to US showrooms (soon?) and to be branded as RAM.

      Wait a second... the OP's is at least five years old.

      Here is what a new Ducato looks like.
      Maybe they use old one anyway to cut costs?
      Still being sold in some countries?

      That van probably came up from Mexico, it's old.

      I say it's either from Mexico, or it's government (military) owned. For fleet vehicles, the GOV buys whatever is the cheapest, and when I was in Germany, our squadron owned a fleet of Ducatos, and in the same exact color. Just food for thought. And I can tell you that those things with the diesel engine are slow pigs, and are scary to drive at anything over 85 mph.
      Jack of all trades.
