Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Your Custom Van Edition


When I was in middle school, I remember discussions of the cars we wanted to drive when we grew up, with talk of 1963 Corvettes, 1984 Camaros and such flying every which way.  One guy always wanted a tank (we didn’t ever let him play kickball, as he tackled), one guy wanted a Transformer-slash-Knight-Rider, while still another had already created detailed diagrams of the Lord Of The Rings characters and half-naked women he wanted painted on his grown-upvan.  Interestingly, 25 years later, he actually had an air-brushed panel van (albeit without the naked lady because of decorum), while most of our classmates drive their Priuses and 4X4s.  (There is surprisingly little middle ground to be had in the midwest.)  For my part, I just wanted something big and red, which exactly describes my current vehicle, with the slight revision that it doesn’t actually start just now, leading us to today’s vehicular query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) occasionally has to remind himself that it’s not 1979 anymore, especially with all the remakes coming out, asking: What image would you want painted on the side of your hypothetical custom van?
