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.
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.
This isn’t technically a van but it still deserves some serious honorable mention. The only issue is that the owner obviously has taken quite a bit of pride in the uniqueness, which I applaud but doesn’t quite adhere to the Sketchy Van guideline. But still, I do respect its existence.
