Hillary Clinton is just like the rest of us. When she wants to go on a trip, she gasses up the old van, makes a quick stop at Chipotle and hits the open road. The one difference is that for Clinton, the old van is a tricked out Chevrolet Express 1500 that retails for between $50,000 and $60,000. 

After announcing her presidential campaign Sunday, Clinton set off for Iowa with top aides Huma Abedin and Nick Merrill in tow. Campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri tweeted that the trip was Clinton's own idea, and that she loves her ride, which she affectionately calls the "Scooby Van."
