The wife and I were discussing paint and thought, "Gee, it sure would be nice to have a vanagon coloring book to try out some different ideas." Resigning myself to failure with almighty Google, I made this up myself. Hopefully someone else will find it useful so my cramped wrist wasn't just for my own gain:

Here's a direct link for the fullsize image:

I printed out pictures, traced them with a thin Sharpie, then scanned the backside (bleed through). It was a very exact process, let me tell you.

Shown is Morris, an '82 Westy. I make no claims as to the anatomical correctness of the drawings, given my artistic inability, poor pictures to trace, and Morris' lack of certain necessities (bumper caps, license plates, etc). On the plus side, during tracing, he lost all his rust and is the same color all over!

I'm sure it'll be a hit with the kids! Enjoy!

Morris...

Morris Dance...

and, if you're a Who fan...

Morris Dance Spider.

Or, if you're both a Who and a Fiat fan...

Morris Dance Spyder.

Shocked

Best!

A cool idea, actually, though my first thoughts on reading the subject line were indeed most of the above first thoughts, from morris dancers to cats to Morris Minors (minus the moose).

As it was, I did my version in Photoshop - which is no less daunting than using a Sharpie pen - to make a red Westy cutaway to look like our two-tone '84 for last year's Christmas letter (betcha didn't know '84s came with square headlights, didja):

It was fun, but a monstrous time suck.
