    Are you old enough to remember custom vans in the early 70's? It was the age of full mural paintings on the side of panel vans that would with images of everything from wizards to aliens. Paired with some shag carpeting on the inside, some box speakers hooked up to the 8-track player, fuzzy dice off the mirror, and you were set for the weekend!

    And then the 80's came. Now vans were small boxes with lots of windows and giant hatchbacks that Mom's used to haul kids & gear to soccer games. Instead of works of art their sides were monotone colored sliding doors. It was the end of the custom van.

    It is good to see that some people remember vans as they once were. For just a few thousand dollars you can help the past live on.

    Yes... that is indeed the mighty Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader! :eek:

    And in case you thought I was kidding about that shag...

    Did you notice the inlaid van decoration on the cabinet? You just can't find that on today's paltry "van" offerings.

    Is your attention piqued by now?

    Think your wife or SO won't notice this monster in your driveway?

    Check it out on eBay! Just don't blame us if you end up buying it.

    I can't decide if that's the coolest thing I've ever seen... or just the most effective form of birth-control ever invented. ;)
