DeLorean Time Machine Van

There's plenty of hardcore movie fans who would die to have some of cinema's most iconic vehicles in their garage. From the legendary time traveling DeLorean used in Back to the Future to the trusty ole Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters. While getting your hands on one of these is highly unlikely, one man has figured out how to make these vehicles of film his own. No he's not a super rich kid who gets whatever he wants, but Brandon Ortwein has taken some of the most recognizable vehicles from different movies and re-imagined them as super cool vans for his ongoing series "It Would Be Cooler as a Van" on Flickr. Check out his creations!

Check out some of the "It would be cooler as a Van" designs he created below and click on any to see more.

Though some of the drawings seem simple in execution by only adding a little more height or width to make a certain vehicle seem more beefy than originally, others require a stretch of the imagination. There's simple renderings making vans out of The Dukes of Hazzard's General Lee or the Griswold Family Truckster from National Lampoon's Vacation, but also far more complicated transformations of Pee-Wee Herman's red bicycle, the Batmobile, and even two versions of the Titanic as a van (one has a flat passenger's side tire and clear marks of a collision with a certain iceberg). Check out some of our favorites above and stay tuned to Mr. Ortwein's Flickr page for continued updates. You can buy almost all of these as prints from Society6.
