I just see another all black van baking in the summer sun. I confess I had to look up what that graphic was from, I always thought it was a law enforcement thing. Apparently, I'm much more a science person.

That's a nice looking van, the graphics significance completely lost on me. I'm assuming its something controversial to some degree and almost 100% certain not intended to state any political or ideological bend of the owners, probably something they just thought was cool. It is----for the moment anyway........

So what's the details on the rest of the van, the parts NOT associated with the graphics and license plate?

I like it. I think the Punisher had an awesome van on the TV series, and this looks like inspiration. A good friend of mine that was in the first Desert Storm as an army ranger is a fan of the Punisher motif.

I suspect a lot of the folks on here like a lower profile (like our vans do not stand out already, hah) and would feel the same about an A-Team van homage, but it looks well done.

It was called the Battle Van in the comics. The silly cartoon version had the logos on it so it would sell toys to kids.

Normally a simple van in the outside and loaded with guns on the inside.

As a huge fan of the Paris to Dakar rally, I had this graphic on the back window of my truck, but unfortunately, it seemed to attract some unfriendly attention from folks who had no idea what it represented. I finally had to remove it after the wife got some of that unfriendly attention. Hopefully, your daughter does not have a similar experience.

I wouldn't do it myself, but I actually kinda like it and I don't think it's overdone. It's got kind of a zombie apocalypse look to it & I agree that the graphic fits the personalized plate. I'm not familiar with the logo or where it comes from, so maybe that would make a difference, but I try not to read too much into stuff.
