It wasn't uncommon to see murals painted on the side of vans. It also wasn't uncommon that these vans were make out vans, as I'm sure is the case with the above..

OMG, totally!!

There was a family that lived across the street from us that was a bit too "liberal" for my parents' taste. They had teenaged children, and one of their daughters babysat for us once. She had a boyfriend who had a make out van, and they used to park right in her driveway, and go to it! PLUS, they would leave that side door OPEN, so all you saw were their legs sticking out the side of the van! Too funny. After the first time my mother saw that, she never babysat for us again. :P

Vans and the Seventies go hand in hand. And the more gaudy the artwork on the side the better.

I had an uncle who only drove vans. Wonderfully appointed and colorfully painted. They were like rolling palaces!

Very cool...

As I remember a lot of them had shag carpet on the floor and up the side walls
