Chaser van?
« on: February 23, 2018, 05:16:41 AM »
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ] Saw this van when I was out walking yesterday morning. The van is from Oklahoma but I don't know if the owner is an occasional chaser or what...

I hope that whoever it is doesn't put too much faith into their temperature readings. With the black vehicle and the VUE shield painted black, that thing must read quite a bit off in the sun.

It looks like some kind of light bar above the back doors. If it is still around, what is the round green decal next to the driver's side taillight?

It kind of reminds me of the Government Black Helicopters....

I'd say it was Gub'mint of some kind, one you're not supposed to notice or talk about.  Better get that knock at your door ....

Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.

No just a regular Oklahoma license plate, eg. not commercial/government/etc...

I saw this same van heading north on I-35 in West, Texas yesterday as we were driving north. Small world I guess...

Cool looking van, don't know about that Temperature sensor or Anemometer though.   I would think the readings wouldn't be very accurate.

Maybe his speedometer broke so he's improvising...
