There was a Scooby Doo Astro van at car show here in Barberton yesterday. It was painted up pretty well.

Why is there a flex or kia soul parked next to you? I hope it's the 250hp engine ecoboost but then why keep the hood closed?

Yup!!
Just wait... now I'm looking for a 2016 Cadillac ELR, another car no one else has.
Then I'll have TWO garage queens. Actually, I'd drive the ELR like 3K miles a year.

That is a Base KIA Soul.
Guy had a PT Cruiser, but he wrecked it. I told him he should buy a Gremlin to match his personality.
