Help us name The Van and win ???

Our adolescent MOB (Man Over Board) mannequin was named by a student " Billy (the Kid)". A good tradition in the making this naming process.

So please help us again and place your name suggestion for The Van in the comments. Preferably one that is understandable for English speaking students as well.

History of this Fire engine, 35 years young, fresh out of Polands Fire Brigade it was in active service until January 2021, original picture of the Polish pope John Paul 2nd still in the cabin, 5 forward gears 1)extremely slow 2)very slow 3)still slow 4) half slow and 5) full warp speed slow. Full warp speed slow is almost 95 km an hour (downhill and with a nice gale in the back😁) reaching that warp speed in about 6,2 ms (6 minutes 20 seconds). 1 last gear being R; very slow the other way. Noice in the cabin at full warp speed is beyond any belief and decibel measurement scale🔊. Could contain 1.500 liters of water, but the whole of the back is now completely empty as all that weight kept the current full warp speed unreachable. The pump needs some work and hopefully will work in the future again pumping water from open water sources via hoses for demonstration purposes. The Van is 7,50 meters long, 2,75 meters high and it is advised to keep your distance as it is not the lightest car in the Netherlands. The brakes are phenomable.

If you see The Van in Huizen parked you are probably close to our office. If you see the Van on the road use your horn and wave (talking to us is useless as we will never hear inside the Van what you are saying)

Price for the selected (winning) name for The Van is to be determined.
