    Here is my latest mode of clown transportation. It is a 1992 Geo Metro Micro Van Conversion, that was a factory built conversion. I am a car guy/clown and have never seen another one like it. I plan to put my logo on the side. This thing look smaller in person, but has a lot of room in the back. It used to be a flower shop delivery van.

    A factory conversion? Is that another way of saying it was a prototype that never got off the ground?

    What is that powered with, a 1.8L 3 cylinder? I vaguely remember that the Geos had a fan club, and that the cars had the makings for being fuel efficient, but the tech at the time didn't make it easy.

    So, is it hard to drive when it's sideways???

    It actually has a 1.0 liter 3 cylinder engine. It started life as a Geo Metro and was converted into a delivery truck by a company called Micro Van Conversions.

    A 1.0L? Wow! I look forward to seeing more pictures as it progresses.

    Sweet. When do you anticipate having it converted into a clown mobile? Be sure to post "after" pics!

    I am considering vinyl at the moment, just our logo. I have seen the full vinyl "Wraps", pretty cool.

    They wrap the public transit train cars with vinyl ads here sometimes (and in many other cities, also.)

    almost every company vehicle gets some sort of vinyl work anymore, most often you see it on the big tractor trailers all the images are vinyl. Its not cheap though. to wrap something like all over would be several grand. although just a small image on the side wouldn't be to bad.

    I heard some friends of Tim tried wrapping him in vinyl a while back but the records kept breaking.
