Customizing Your Van
Girdler, Revised by Caiati
3rd ed., 1986
Submitter: So, I was weeding our nonfiction collection today when I found this beauty. I love this book so much, especially since it’s lived quietly on our shelf for lo these 26 years. I particularly love the liberal use of shag carpeting and leopard print. And who could forget the bitchin’ bikini babe?
Holly: It looks well-used, so maybe it’s only been quietly on the shelf lo these 20-or-so years. That’s not much better. What a hoot, though!
Love truck, baby! Ye-ah!
I see this and I think about serial killers….
I would like to find Shelby Goode and ask him to paint that Close Encounters scene on the side of my 2008 Corolla.
I wanted a van like this _so bad_ when I was in the 8th grade. In 1978. I’m surprised this book is from 1986. Customized vans were no longer cool by then.
I… think I know the author of this book. He dated my mom when I was in high school…
Ahh, my closest brush with fame. *wipes tears from his eye*
Did Mom get to hang out in one of the custom vans?
How do I install my kid’s carseat on the “classic contoured crushed velvet couch”? I can’t wait to go reupholster my car in Naugahyde with imitation leopard skin!
Who needs to go to Vegas if they can have a custom contour crushed velvet couch in their “star bus”?
I just asked her.
She said no, by the time this was printed (it was actually 1986 when they dated) all he had was a flatbed truck and a motorcycle.
*Girl in bikini not included.*
