More Fantasy Van Murals

Riffing off of Grognardia's earlier treatment on the topic, I thought I'd post some additional remarkable van mural pictures I've collected while trawling the internet. Seeing vans like these when I was a kid always made my day. Luckily, around Southern California you can still spot them occasionally, especially those with supernatural Aztec murals. A few months ago in my neighborhood I saw a truck fully muralized for the heavy metal band Man-O-War and I started screaming to my wife with excitement - I wish I had a camera for that one.

  3. Man, too much pop culture overload. Rankin/Bass The Hobbit, Man Wolf (J. Johan Jameson from Spider Man's son...I know my shit!).

    Poor James M. Living in Canada, there is a lot of shit still around that he must think has long gone to the wayside.

  4. The Hobbit van rocks.

    Also: If I had seen the Man Wolf van when I was a kid I would have flipped out. I had the Power Records Book and Record set of the issue where he fights Spider-Man.
