Here at PhoneyFresh I share my weirdo interests, including (but not limited to): Garage sale and dumpster treasures, vintage magazine innards, glorious VHS trash, forgotten LP covers, self help schlock, vexing vixens, my kitschy kollekshuns and oh, so much more. Ninety-nine percent of the content you see here is from my own collection. Scanned by me, photographed by me, etc. No low-res Google search globby jpeg junk here folks! Dig!

The Lost Arts...

Where have all the custom vans gone? There seemed to be no shortage in the 70's and 80's....probably gone to scrap heaps, every one. I suppose man hasn't lost his desire to customize, what with the plethora of, dare I say, "pimped out" rides cruising the streets this day and age. But it just isn't the same. Vinyl wraps, LCD screens and LED light just don't hold a candle to porthole windows, deep shag carpet and wood veneer. And who could forget the paint job? Those amazingly airbrushed fantasy scenes of wizards, cosmic beings, other-worldly creatures, space babes, hobbits, barbarians and wide-stretching galaxies. It's a lost art my friends.

I am totally ga ga for these! What a great set of pics. The airbrushing is phenomenal, and the interiors (including the ckicks) are Baaaaaad Assss! Could you imaging being a father, about to see your teenage daughter off on a date and her beau shows up in one of these fine Shaggin Wagons!
