Vans have always stood for good vibes, free love, and music. They were basically a vehicle to showcase the freedom to do what ever you want. To further this feeling, many owners showed that through art, airbrushing the van to showcase whatever fantasy world they envisioned. Unicorns, horses, underwater life and outer space are just a few of the concepts many owners frequently chose to depict.
Today the tradition continues, just on a smaller scale. There are still festivals, events and competitions held that are havens for the people who love to display their vans. Check 'em out after the jump.
