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?
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 plain white van hangs out a lot in Bernal Heights on Cortland St. If it was just parked on the street, it might not even have caught my attention. And, actually, I didn’t know what a gold-mine I had found until I walked around taking some pics of this.
Oh baby. Who knew you were going to be such a treasure?
Yes, the every-neighborhood van. They are all over the place, they are always around, and every city has one. But do they all have one that says “weezy”? Yeah, I didn’t think so. This one was on the other street outside my house, the same time as the Yellow one was.
