When I was in middle school, I remember endless discussions of the cars we wanted to drive when we grew up, with talk of ’63 Corvettes, Camaros and other unattainables 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-up van.  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 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 last vehicle, 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 custom van?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
