The 2017 annual event, the vans custom culture contest in which vehicles are judged on the quality of their custom fit and finish, was held at the Detroit Auto Show on Thursday, May 30. The contest is organized by the van owners’ association.
The vans were judged on their “custom fit,” whether it was made with the right amount of materials, and whether they held the proper weight distribution. The contest rules were simple: The winner gets a custom van that they can use for a year. But like the contestants themselves, the winner is always a vehicle owned by a van owner. The Van owners Association awards prizes ranging from two vans, a truck, a trailer, to a car.
The purpose of the contest is simple enough. People vote for vehicles and for the best custom fit. The top eight finalists are then put up for sale. Some of these will go to buyers who will then begin to build custom vans of their own based on the contest winning vehicles.
In the end, the winners of the contest will end up with over $10,000 in cash from van sales. The winners also get to compete against each other in a custom van culture contest. Which means they have to be a bit more creative than just driving around in a van for a year.
To be honest, I’m not too sure about the culture contest aspect of it at all. I’m not sure I really want to be competing against myself. I’d rather just stay at home and watch TV. But the contest is definitely something I might be willing to do in the future.
The contest is a pretty good idea. We’ve been working on it for a while now. We’ve had a few ideas and were looking for an event to take place on the first Saturday of each month. We’ve talked about having it at Deathloop but then we thought we would need to host it somewhere. We’ve been approached by several other events, including one at a local bar, but we decided to go with the contest idea.
We are looking for creative, creative people. We are looking for people who are creative in their own right. We are looking for artists and designers, who are also very creative.
The contest is open to anyone, so no skill needed. All you need to do is create your own van. The only rule is that you must post a video of it at the van’s location. The van has to be built from scratch, so you can’t use any factory parts. The van is to be constructed in a specific location, and the size and shape of each of the components must be chosen by the contest winner.
The goal of this contest is to see who can come up with the coolest ideas. The first part of the contest is open to the public and anyone who wants to enter the contest can enter it, but those who win the grand prize will have to build their own van. So the winner will receive a custom van, and of course, one of those custom vans will be built by the person who wins the grand prize.
