A Blast from the Past

The Happy Van


My Hubby painted this van in 1999, back when we lived in Illinois.

We're a couple of hippy dippy dudes, for sure!  We had a blast driving it around town, I've never had so many offers to go smoke a doob in my life from strangers.  Too bad I don't smoke...
You can't see the plate in this photo but it read FLSHBCK.  I'll hunt around for some more pics, this thing was a trip!
 We sold it when we moved to Vegas, on eBay.  Two guys from Eau Claire Wisconsin came down to pick it up--a good eight hour drive each way from our old house.  I guess they were hippy dippy dudes, too.

Have a great Sunday!

Wow, that took a lot of time and effort -- what a fabulous job painting it. I can imagine it would have been hard to give it up.
