  1. Looks like it would be perfect for when you want to send a message along the lines of, "Don't start anything, the cops are really serious about watching you!" Or for using as an RV when you want everyone in the nearby campsites to completely freak out.

  2. Neat truck, but now I can't stop hearing John Candy say "Sheboygan"

    1. You know...polka, polka, polka, twin lakes Polka?

  3. I am confused yet in love with the cinder block wall on the inside of the van, is this thing blastproof or do the occupants challenge each other to graffiti tag practice in the wait time between assignments?

    1. Pretty sure that is tile/fake tile.

    2. I had the same thought. It's probably just foam, but it sure does look like a crappy institutional grade cinder block wall.

  4. If I lived in Sheboygan, WI... I'da had hundreds built.... cause it's definitely NOT safe there..

  5. She Bangs She Bangs but does she Sheboygan......i gostoknow....!
