You have to hand it to anyone who would not only paint their van themselves, but call it an actual Mystery Machine. Which brings up the question, did these guys get paid for their services? Why advertise like that if you aren't going to charge the poor Bed & Breakfast lady for getting rid of that crotchety (yet, surprisingly inventive and committed) old caretaker who really, really wanted her real estate? They drove around (nice color choices, but sadly, no half-naked space chicks with guitars) in their aqua-red-green van visiting a vast assortment of vacation spots (where did they get the money for all these vacations?) and aunts, uncles and cousins... I'm not sure who, exactly, they were advertising TO. In any event, the Mystery Machine was pretty cool, even if it was just a dressy serial killer van (I mean, no windows? And what was up with everyone sitting in the front seat all the time?).
