Why Are Vans Always the Getaway Car in Bank Heist Movies?
The obvious answer is that you need a van to fit the whole team, but that is bogus. I squeezed six in my Trans Am back in the day. Sure, it was unsafe, illegal and just plain stupid, but it can be done.
We are talking about a bank heist here. You need handling and you need speed. I'm not suggesting any car in particular, but a van like the one in the picture above would literally be my last choice.
It's time to disregard the comfort of the passengers. We don't need to be thinking of how much leg room every team member has. You just stuff everyone in a very fast car and get moving.
Your typical movie bank heist has anywhere from 4-6 members. Are you going to tell me you can't get that squad with the money and stick 'em in a Mustang? You can, and it's well worth it. Instead of taking a turn at 50 and almost rolling the van, now you are taking turns at 60 and getting the hell out of there.
I spend way too much time thinking about movie bank heists. Clip below contains profane language.
