How to tune your Transit van
White van men, beware: Ford reveals modified Connects for SEMA tuner show
Posted: 29 Oct 2013
Ah, the Ford Transit. Beloved of White Van Man, traditionally served with a rolled-up newspaper on the dash and the gentle whiff of B&H.
But not at the SEMA tuner show. Ford has descended upon this year's Las Vegas mod-fest with not one, not two, but nine hopped-up Transit Connects. And there's not a copy of the Daily Star in sight.
As SEMA demands, the tuned Trannies boast lots of gold, huge alloy wheels, lowered suspension and a plethora of liveries to make you the envy of - or object of ridicule at - the building site.
The idea, apparently, is to showcase the ‘versatility' of the new Transit Connect van, though for some reason not one of these concepts has a roll of carpet poking precariously through a rope-tied rear door.
Have a click through the gallery and see what you think. Reckon you can do any better? Photoshop your finest tuned Transits, and we'll promise not to laugh. Best efforts get posted on TG.com later this week...
