There's a "The Mystery Machine" van up in Gaylord, MI. I think it's a Ford. Next time I'm up at our place up there. I'll have to get a picture of it.

There have been a few Scooby Vans among us Vanners over time.
I was hanging with one of those dudes from OH only last evening!

I had way too much Scooby Stuff, made a lot of it go away, hung on to some choice pieces, tho!

I want to have more than a Scooby-Do or A-team image for our Vanning community. There are many beautiful Vans that have been loved and saved and used and driven. Those are the ones I want the world to see!

This is a money maker,it has been rented out for $250.00 for a couple of hours as a party prop for birthdays to $1250.00 as a camp out camper over night with xtra $ for ghosts and monsters in the nights mysterys Mystery to be solved by the gang hosting its own real life SCOOBY-DOO ADVENTURES it makes everyone happy when they see it sitting or driving down the road .... so money maker or pleasure ride this is coolsville at its best don't miss out.

Conceptually there has to be like one Mystery Machine per area to keep the ratio right - Otherwise it's like wearing the exact same thing as someone else at a party. Likely need more data and maybe add milage?

Anyway, counting only the serious attempts (noted in this chain) at creating this iconic vehicle. It's interesting the way this maps out. <SMILE>

The Original Mystery Machine is a 1966 Dodge A100 van that was originally owned and operated by the Hanna-Barbera Studios.

The Original Mystery Machine is now owned by Robin Terry of Auburn, Ill. Terry tours around with the van and Scooby to many different events and charity functions to help organizations such as The Lost Limbs Foundation. Robin is also the owner of Ashmore Estates in Ashmore, Ill., an historical site featured on shows such as 'Ghost Hunters' and 'Ghost Adventures'.

Terry says that he keeps the van touring because "it is exciting to see the smiles on children's faces aging from 5-75 when they recognize it

I have seen a couple of the Scooby vans done up well and great looking. The one is owned by a lady from Butler, PA and I believe the other is an Ohio van. I seen it at the NATS several years ago. That hearse gal pic reminds me of the 70s and 80s when guys would buy one and use it as an everyday vehicle. There was one in my area that the guy had painted bright orange, stuck out anywhere he drove it. Most people wanted nothing to do with a hearse and they usually had very low miles, in excellent condition, and could be purchased cheap, and they always seemed to have a huge gas guzzling motor in them.
