Once again, you never quite know what you’re going to find when you do an entire walkaround of a new find. This one was just hanging out in the Mission and I’m having hard time figuring out – is this a true graffiti van or is this an art project?
But then the pure joy of an artistic van find.
Panda Sex? On a van? I’m perplexed, confused, and extremely giddy. Thanks Neil.
About time Toyota joined the Sketchy Van club. Driving around in the Mission in San Francisco, I stumbled on this little gem on a back street. Now, normally, I don’t condone the stripping of a van – it offends me personally. And normally that would immediately disqualify a van from inclusion in Sketchy Vans. But this one took an exceptional beating that it deserved to be honored in some way before heading to the junk heap.
Just to show what sometimes can happen if you’re not careful with your van. Here are some interior shots.
And just to add some additional insult to the entire injurious situation. Thank you, Department of Parking and Traffic.
The first van to actually let me see what vans are made of. I always thought there was a good mix or steel, plastic, aluminum, wiring, glass, and the occasional shag carpet.
But what’s that at the bottom of the crunched in side of the van?
Is that wood?
Finally had my camera with me in the Tendernob area of San Francisco. This little bad boy has been taunting me for a month or so now, as originally pointed out in a text message from Ms. Fiery herself.
Hotel SFO – welcome to your home away from home
A good way to be included in the Sketchy Van family is to have a knocked-in side door, couple broken windows, some great grafitti etched or drawn on, or a rooftop patched up by duct tape. But a sure-fire way to be included – forget fixing the hood mechanism. Just get yourself a MasterLock and a chain.
Now if you have all of them – well, you might be in the running for the best ever. A bold comment. A bold statement. Sometimes the boldest appear to be the plainest at first site.
This Dodge Ram got itself a little snake bite love.
Nice back window accessory.
Good thing this bad boy has a security system.
Don’t even think about touching the license plate. Snake attack!
The longest Dodge van ever in the history of vans, I think. This elongated delight was found near the Odd in Bernal Heights in San Francisco.
