If it's an actual van, sure. We've seen at least three A-Team themes on cars by now, so if you're thinking of getting a Mr. T costume and GMC logos on your RX-7, don't.

Wasn't for me....just wondered if it had been done

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

My number one would be I've always wanted to purchase a cheap suzuki swift and have a taylor swift team. Of course there should be a rival kanye west team that keeps stealing the line from swift.

The roofie colada would be a nice car, martini glass for a hood emblem, bros in hawaiian shirts, etc.

I want to make a gulf gt(insert car height here) sometime, but it seems overused.

I come up with so many themes I want to run but there's just not enough time or money for them all.

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

has anyone ever done a pirate theme?

If it moves and shouldn't, use Duct Tape.
If it should move and doesn't, use WD-40.
If those don't work, its BROKE!

Do a search for the Rum Runners in Houston - they're pretty pirate, although not specifically "Argh, I'm a Pirate" pirate.

yeah, i should've been clear
i meant "Argh, I'm a Pirate" pirate, not "We run bootleg TripleSec" pirates

Why do that one, when you can easily do this one? The shape easily lends itself to a 240Z and you can make a fake blower out of the a/c compressor, rubbermaid container, etc.

I'd love to see someone do the backwards police car from Moving Violations.  They took a box-body crown vic and mounted the body on backwards for a chase scene in reverse.

If she's hot, I believe this would be a bonus even if your theme was the Margaret Thatcher Team...

If you're going to have a wood-sided green wagon, it needs to be done like this:

How does a Ford team come into the picture with the authority to grant a pardon? This seems to open the door to many LeMons legal quandaries.

Lol.  This scene (stolen from IMDB.com) has me crying with laughter almost every time I see it:

State Trooper: What the hell are you driving here?

Del: We had a small fire last night, but we caught it in the nick of time.

State Trooper: Do you have any idea how fast you were going?

Del: Funny enough, I was just talking to my friend about that. Our speedometer has melted and as a result it's very hard to see with any degree of accuracy exactly how fast we were going.
