Just having a nice evening at a local bar having a few drinks talking to people around, ended up having a nice conversation with a pretty blond who was a little lit, she likes motorcycles, boating, she hasn't been to Havasu in years etc,
Being the gentleman that i am i offer to give her a ride home, ( her house not mine) now since my Hellcat was hit last week and both my suburban and dually are in the shop i was driving my van,
As we walk out to the van she stops and was like hell no i'm not getting into that, wtf it's a pretty cool ass van, (well maybe not from a lit girls point of view.)
Never had that happen before,

A: Dodge Van's were cooler
B: Yours would be cooler if it had one of those shitty shaped windows in side towards the back and an old skool limo antenna on the roof
C: At least it got slot mags, but they shouldn't be polished...that's just tacky.
D: Sides pipes need perforated heat shields...you'll see those if you turn to the next page of your 1984 JCwhitney catalog.

My first ride was a Green 72’ ford econoline 3/4 ton van with factory windows all around.
My GF’s sister told her to stay away from me because I had a van, lol. It was a damn fishbowl ha ha

Van is bitchin! Contractor rolled into work in a 70s turquoise Dodge tradesman with torque thrusts. I want it.
She just knew what she would do for old-time sake if she got in that van.

Hmmmmm that’s weird. Drunk chick doesn’t want to get into the mystery machine with the 6’5” 300 lb dude she just met at the bar. Weird. 😁😁

She would’ve gone home with you in the Ferrari. It’s worked before remember? Just don’t marry those ones man!!! Lol

My parents had a kustom van when I was in HS, I’d rock the “Rastle Castle” every chance I got.

My dad had one in high school that said “Good N Plenty” on the side. My grandma referred to it as a “whorehouse on wheels” haha

haha. Your story reminds me of so many people I know. Talking about how they have this big truck, this big trailer, dirt bikes, boats, sports cars, etc. You follow them out into the parking lot and they get into an old Honda civic or something. Then all of a sudden the viper is in the shop, the truck is getting a new turbo, etc. Then they want to take her back to her place (because they live with their parents or have room mates)

Maybe it was that you waterbed doesn’t have a heater? Looking forward to clarity after the second encounter.

I saw an old shitty van one time and on the back it said "Don't laugh, your daughter might be in here"
I had a couple custom vans back in the 70's and that was a pretty popular sticker. I've been thinking about getting another one for some time now for the nostalgia but also for camping. If I did, I'd have that painted on the back but at my age I'd have the word "daughter" crossed out and write in "mother", then cross that out and write in "gandmother"!😁

Well guess it wasn't a total loss. she called me this morning and we are going out to dinner :)
If you really want to give her the shit test, show up on the bike with a spare beanie helmet and a suction cup seat on the rear fender. If she goes, marry her.
