It’s kind of hard to see this one, given it’s width and the width of our site, but enlarge it to see a great infographic on some famous vans.  If you go to the infographic page yourself you can interact with it, liking certain vans on Facebook and Tweeting about your favorites.

1969

The van of 1969 is the Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo.  Check out the paint job.  I bet Shaggy picked the decor.

1981

1981 brought us Postman Pat’s Van, the Bedford HA Royal mail van that he and Jess the cat used to deliver mail all over Greendale.  The same year brought us the yellow Reliant Regal used by Trotters Independent Trading Company.

1983

The A-Team made the black GMC Vandura a desirable vehicle.  Everybody wanted to be a member of the A-Team, even though they probably couldn’t even PRONOUNCE ‘mercenary’.

1985

Michael J. Fox’s hit movie Teen Wolf brought us the box van that Styles set up to sell all his “Teen Wolf” merchandise.  They don’t tell us what kind of van it was.  Boxy, that’s for sure.

1987

It’s hard to believe the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are 24 years old – older than that, really, when you take into account the ages of the turtles when the show first aired.  They had a van.

1994

Skip ahead to the time of Dumb and Dumber, when Harry transformed his van to look like a dog.  Dumb, dumber, dumbest, but super cute.

2006

The van that the family traveled with in Little Miss Sunshine was a Volkswagen T2 Microbus.  It broke down, it only worked if you pushed it and then jumped in.  It was yellow.

2010

The reboot of the A-Team included a reboot of the GMC Vandura – same van – more bells and whistles.

Scorecard

Design:  A

Very attractive

Information:  B

It would have been nice for the specs on each van.
