We can't even fit half the great things about this van in the title! It's also got a household air conditioner (with generator) and authentic 1970s red-white-and-blue shag carpet in the back!

And that's not all- this mid-70s Chevy van boasts cubic yards of hipster accessories without being at all ironic and/or pretentious. I ran into this fine machine at the 24 Hours Of LeMons South Fall a few weeks back; its owner is a member of the USS Enterprise Ford LTD team.

Quadruple exhaust pipes, 8-ball shifter, North Carolina plates… and Tommy Chong's signature on the dash. Yes, it's for real!

DISCUSSION

I love me some beater vans. I've had 5 full size vans from a 77 with a straight 6, mags and shag up to the 94 conversion van I have now.

Rust took most of them and is working pretty hard on this one. I never drove them in the winter but lots of people did before I got them.

Occasionally on the 77 you'd go to slide the side door open and it would keep going right off the side of the van and fall on the ground.

As if that wasn't enough there were good sized rust holes everywhere and going down the highway things would accumulate in the foot well of the sliding door and blow around like balloons in a Sears fan display. Beer cans mostly but once a full bag of potato chips fell over in there and the entire van was filled with airborne potato chips.

Salt in the eyes kinda stings.
