Soooo the news GMC-class Van? hahahaha
ya.. its a work van, but just to funny.
We don’t know when it started, but we have been developing an odd fascination spotting dealership service vehicles. This is especially true when we spot a dealer vehicle utilizing another car brand as their preferred mode of transport. We end up asking aloud: Their own car or truck wasn’t good enough?
It was with some amount of strange excitement that we spotted this GMC Safari full-size van, adorned with Mercedes-Benz of Novi stickers. We saw it driving West on I-696 in the Farmington Hills area this week. The service technician driving the car appeared German (steely demeanor, disapproving of our one-handed camerawork while driving) and had a Mercedes-Benz shirt on.
Why wouldn’t Mercedes-Benz of Novi purchase a Dodge Sprinter for parts hauling? Or, if this was a people hauler, what about a GL-class?
Do you have any other sightings of odd service vehicles utilizing “off” brands as their primary means of transport?
