My forward-control van fetish has been well documented in this space, so it should be no surprise that I felt compelled to post this van this week. What really sold me was that somebody was clearly going for an inverted Scooby Doo theme before the wheels fell off (or, in this case, dry-rotted and went flat). This thing really has some history to it – what were the El Paso Public Schools doing with it – some sort of sting operation trying to catch the occasional midnight toker? Who decided it was a good idea to black-out the grille, windshield, and headlight trim? What’s with the seemingly random application of red primer when everything else is blue, gray, and green? What could the interior possibly be like? These and other groovy mysteries could be investigated by you and your meddling friends for less than $2k, Great Dane not included.
