About “The $800 Craigslist Van”

The project I fell into last fall after the '54 left for LA and the Kids' fate was secured by the Bel Air funded lawyer.

It works great for hauling t-shirts and vending at car shows. Started innocently enough with a set of big and little rally wheels but I wasn't smart enough to leave it alone.

So, what could be funnier than a ****ty 90's van patched-up and made to look like a 70's shaggin wagon?

This kind of stuff happens if a car/graphics guy doesn't have something decent to work on in the winter. Somebody please take away my paint gun.

I'm well aware of the fact that I'm a huge dork. Thank you for your concern :o)

What does Kaitlyn have to say about this whole mess? She hasn't pinned a name on it yet. Whenever she catches me calling it a "truck", she is pretty quick to remind me that live in the no-man's land occupied by vans & el caminos. "It's a van dad." Thank you for reminding me peanut.

I will say there's nothing like having your cell phone number in blue metalflake plastered down the side of something like this. Ladies. . . I'm single. Wanna go for a ride in my bitchin' van? Lol
