I was thinking Ford F-250 until I had to actually feed one of the things. Hooked up a trailer, gave it a hundred bucks of diesel, drove it to Toronto (300 km), gave it another hundred bucks of diesel..... when the Poker Run comes to town, we see a few F-550s, which are really quite something (and which have a thirst for dino juice exceeded only by the 1200 hp 40-foot Fountains behind them).

More likely is one of those uber-minivan things they've been coming out with lately (Ford Flex, etc.) that can haul a couple of tonnes without needing an oil gusher all to themselves. By the time I get the Starwind 800 prototype in the water, today's vans will be seeking their third owners in exchange for ten grand or so....
