Doesn't it look happy? Like it's smiling at us in a friendly kind of way? And check out the interior!
It's like a little 1950's Dinnette! Complete with black and white linoleum and everything! I want to live in the bus with my husband and all of our babies, driving around the country and homeschooling and growing our own beans in little pots in the backseat!! We could knit potholders and sell them for $1 apiece door to door to support ourselves!!* And maybe pass out Tracts, too!

Next up for consideration, we have this beauty, with custom fractal paint job and everything!
[This one kind of makes me want to drive around Hawaii or Paris or Oklahoma or something, designing and selling Quilts.]

And by the way, is it just me, or does it look like the 70's models have "faces" reminiscent of a mellow, bell-bottomed, thick-mustached, banjo-strumming motorcycle mechanic, while the 80's models (like this one) look like a digital-watch-wearing, skinny-tied Asian engineering student...?
Then, there was the pick-up truck:
Good for traveling around town with your pony. Or pet goat. Or platypus.
Have a whole lot of kids, and like to catch the breeze when you drive? Try this "23 Window Samba Deluxe"!
Allright, I could go on and on, but I should go interact with my child...
*I suppose this is sort of an Evangelical, far-less-lucrative version of "grow pot in pots in the backseat and sell it door to door," although when I first wrote it I wasn't thinking of that...
