VAN DECORATING IN DETROIT

SINCE 1970 IT HAS BECOME A WIDESPREAD FAD IN THE DETROIT
AND SURROUNDING METROPOLITAN AREAS TO DECORATE VANS TO SUIT
THE PERSONALITY AND CHARACTER OF THE OWNER.
THIS HAS TAKEN ON A NEW ASPECT IN AUTOMOBILE CIRCLES AND HAS
BECOME A MONEY-MAKING VENTURE FOR MANY. THE VANS ARE
PAINTED WITH CUSTOM DESIGNS THAT COST $300.00 OR
MORE, THE INTERIORS ARE CARPETED AND FREQUENTLY CONTAIN A BED, SMALL
REFRIGERATOR
AND NUMEROUS OTHER COMFORTS OF HOME. THEY INVARIABLY ALSO
HAVE A SOPHISTICATED STEREO SYSTEM, AND HIGHLY POLISHED CHROME
WHEELS, IT HAS BECOME THE STATUS SYMBOL TO DRIVE ONE OF THESE
VANS INSTEAD OF THE LUXURY CARS CURRENTLY PRODUCED.
