It's one of my favorite subjects and I'm always bumping into one of these fancy vehicles, from the Zion Bus to the Rainbow Van.

I don’t know if I’m paying more attention to it or old stuff are really fashion now (they call it retro, I believe) but I’m always bumping into these personalized vans that transport me to those fabulous years, the 60’s. Well, I heard they were fabulous, I have no idea because I didn’t exist at the time but I do fancy all those colors!

My neighborhood seems to attract this type of vehicles. A few months ago the Sheep Van was always outside my house. It’s impossible not to like it, right?

I spotted the next one while in a lomo walk to shoot graffiti. It’s owner should have a gas discount for the smiles his Rainbow Van provokes!

The Zion Bus was outside a reggae festival held near the beach, couldn’t be more appropriate and was surely a success.

Lately, I’ve spotted the Orange Van also in my neighbourhood. Those curtains kill me, pure “That 70’s Show”! And can you see Calvin next to the deposit? Can you see what is he doing? :D

Don’t they make you feel like packing your cameras and go on a road trip around the world?
