The Mitsubishi Vanup turned out out to be surprisingly popular: Fark picked it up and gave our servers a bit of a workout. Well, we have more where that came from. Here’s a very well executed domestic version on the same theme, right down to the “Chevy Vanup” tailgate logo and VANUP vanity plates. But unless the owners (UO students) do something about it quick, this thing is headed for the impound yard. And how will it be described by the police?
I didn’t catch the tailgate and plates until I looked at these shots, otherwise I would have bothered to walk across the street and get a better shot.
I saw this vanup in a frat parking lot last spring several times, but didn’t make the effort to get close to it. And when I realized that the school year was up this summer, I suddenly got regretful, given the odds that the frats would not be returning. But there it was on the street the other day, obviously parked there for some time, because the police have gotten pretty aggressive with it. It rarely goes to this stage with a boot. There’s some evidence underneath the rear end that perhaps the vanup is ailing, and won’t drive away under its own steam. Well, it’ll get help with that real soon.
