VAN WARS

Van culture is big in many parts of the world, with the most popular models for customisation seeming to come from the VW, Ford, Dodge and GM stables. But who has the best vans; US or Europe? Only one way to find out; FIGHT!

ROUND 1

USA come in with a heavy whack of performance-inspired custom van

Europe counters with an F1 engine in the back of a Transit. Ouch!

Europe takes Round One

ROUND 2

European vans want to play with their opponent, goading it with star spangled banners and dancing lightly around them, going old school with a far out retro paint scheme

USA isn’t having it. First with a right…

Then with a left…

Nobody does retro like USA and their 70s custom vans. They take this round.

ROUND 3

Europe’s reeling. It’s going to have to dig deep and work hard. Utility is the name of the game now

USA makes a sweet counter…but can’t help letting their guard down as thoughts turn to going surfing instead

Europe smells blood, going in for the kill with some two sharp jabs

First a left

…then a right

USA is rocked, it’s on the ropes. Surely it’s only a matter of time before Europe turns their lead into victory

ROUND 4

BOOM!

Wow! Nobody saw that coming! Out of nowhere USA have thrown in some Star Wars paint scheme…Europe’s stunned.

All it can do is keep working to stay on its feet…but Europe’s looking pretty beaten up at the moment

Ohhhhhh, USA are desperate for the win and throw a low blow in, trying to illegally gain an advantage

USA take this round, but the crowd doesn’t like it

ROUND 5

USA give a smart upper cut at the beginning of the fifth looking for the killer blow

It doesn’t look like Europe has any answers. They’ll have to pull something special out of the bag now!

Ah, the classic tank tracks in the snow and awesome paintjob move. Europe’s really showing its class now and is looking much steadier on its feet!

Europe win the round to edge back out into the lead. We’re witnessing one of the all time great bouts here.

ROUND 6

It’s a workman-like start from Europe at the beginning of the sixth. Both competitors look like they’re holding on to the last of their energy

image

The USA seem like they’ve got more ideas at this stage though

…and manage to throw in a beautiful combo…

Europe retorts with a mighty blow that may just have saved them. Supervan 3! That was a real side-swipe as Europe steal the round from USA

ROUND 7

USA are trying a new tact now, chopping Europe with a mini blow

It winds Europe momentarily, but they look determined. Both sides now flagging, their guards dropped. But there’s a determined look in both their eyes.

One last punch could seal this…

POW!

WHACK!

USA let rip with a crazy windmill of a custom Chevy van as Europe unleash the mailman. It’s a double knockout!

Who would have thought it! Both USA and Europe are declared winners in van wars.
