Dan Neil:

SEXY FARRIER. In this dream I wear a leather apron and no pants. I drive around in my Ford Transit full-size cargo van that has been converted into a mobile smithing shop, with one of those propane-powered miniforges in the back. Thanks to the best-in-class cargo height of the High Roof model (81.4 inches) I can stand to my full, strapping height, forearms glistening. I travel the countryside, shoeing horses and attending to the equestrian needs of the lady of the house. Neigh.
 Between the Ford Transit and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, there’s a lot to love about vans. WSJ’s Dan Neil discusses on Lunch Break with Tanya Rivero. Photo: Ford
 Surf chaser. We are in Costa Rica. Naturally, I will have converted my Mercedes-Benz Sprinter diesel into a botanical greenhouse/pirate radio station. Me and my old lady Fern go where the waves go, eating mangoes grown in the cup holders, and we are followed everywhere by our trained dolphin. Let’s call him Antiocles.
