A Vancouver dad is reluctantly selling his custom 1978 GMC van, airbrushed with a stunning — and we mean that in every definition of the word — ode to "Star Trek."
The question isn't, who would want the truly one-of-a-kind vehicle; the question is, who WOULDN'T!
And if the head-turning Trek art isn't enough, the interior boasts diamond-quilted red velvet.
Diamond quilted. Red velvet.
The van was painted by Canadian artist G.S. Roy, and owned by the same family for 33 years. Most of that time was spent in storage.
The current owner says he's selling because he needs to "shrink the family vehicle stable a bit as we now have two small boys and no time."
He posted it on eBay for US$8,500 (C$9,146) but with the ad set to expire on Friday, it had not attracted any bids.
He bought it last summer from someone in Ontario and shipped it to Vancouver where he "enjoyed every day of owning it. NOT a vehicle for the shy, you absolutely cannot go anywhere without many thumbs up, cheers, and people waxing nostalgic about custom vans and/or Star Trek."
Someone needs to buy this van and give us a ride:
