The infamous Big Green Van from Up in Smoke has finally been found. Melinda A. Cuslidge, an official restorer of the infamous Green Van, contacted us last week to give us the scoop. Currently, this masterpiece is in the possession of her father and his friend.
Where has it been?.....
A bit player from the 1978 movie (the child in the beginning) acquired the van after production finished. In turn, he sold it to a friend, whose son blew the engine and nearly totalled the van after hitting a pack of deer :-(
Dave Cuslidge, Melinda's father, and Jesus Torres decided to purchase the van from Dave's friend for $700 and is now in the process of restoring it. On a related note, Melinda was responsible for, among other things, painting "Sweet & Low Upholstery, 1817 Calle de los Sofas" on the side.
You, too, can see the Big Green Van in person. Shortly, it's owners will be displaying it at auto shows around California.
This is the batmobile for cool people!
