We pity the fool who does not think that’s cool. Put aside the celebrity provenance of this “authentic replica” supposedly “certified” by George Barris, for now just look at the thing. It seems to be a spot-on knock-off of Doctor of Letters Baracus’ van bad attitude, the perfect midlife crisis toy for someone who grew up watching The A-Team. Imagine how cool it was to bring children to school in all this?
Okay, snarling traffic during drop-off time will not clear faster, but when it comes to “manly vans,” you can not reload this custom 1983 Chevrolet G10. Wait, what do you say? Doctor of Letters was driving a GMC? Sure he did. But this is a replica, and one that seems to have been built by a donor nearly identical Chevy.
