My van is named Lil' Shitty because when my wife & I started working on it she said, "No matter what we do to this van, it's always gonna be a little shitty...which is cool". đŸ˜‚

That's funny!
My wife had a blue Fiat 500 that I called "The Little Shit" because it was so "scrappy".


One time, I jokingly called my van the Stay Puft Marshmallow Van and it kind of stuck.

I thought about "The Candy Van".

Seriously though a few years ago there was an amber alert for some guy in a white Dodge conversion van that had picked his grand daughter from school and never came back home.

It got full local media attention. In the meantime everybody at work started referring to my white Chevy conversion van as the molester van. In fact I actually parked it until the search was over.

One day I stopped to talk to one of my neighbors when a police car showed up. The officer told me that a white conversion van had been spotted in the neighborhood and someone called the police! He says, "I realize this is no the van we are looking for but we had to investigate it". Despite the situation, I found it kind of amusing. Not that I find doing harm to children amusing.

The eventually found the guy. He and her had been living in a campground or park somewhere in the general area.

The Creeper and Candy VAN are two names that non vanners hang on most vans. Kinda pissed me off being put in the sicko category because of my love for vans..makes one hesitant to name there ride at all.


When in doubt..get the sawzall out..
