R.I.P. Greg of Akron

Illustration for article titled R.I.P. Greg of Akron

We have received the sad news that Greg of Akron, creator of some of the most super-cosmic custom vans of the Van Era, died last week at the age of 66. Since he was such a crucial cultural icon, we think the US Postal Service ought to issue a special commemorative stamp with some of Greg's artwork; email them and join the chorus of demands for the Greg of Akron postage stamp!
