Camino LS6

A Long Island oddity

Recommended Posts

During the trek up there today, I kept seeing full-size vans with porthole windows in the back.

I haven't seen so many since the 70s, what's up with that?

And they were all plain white work vans, not custom vans at all.

Very strange.

I didn't even think anyone still made those things.

...the shadow knows...

Seriously, I wonder if some company added them aftermarket for light inside or something?

That was the only reason I could think of, but it was so strange to see so many of them in one local area.

Nope, just among the members of the Long Island Disco Cult.

People are "special" out here...

So I've noticed!

Hopefully there's an "exception" to the rule behind that smilie!

Of course there is!

It's just the "Porthole Mafia" I'm so puzzled by.

Probably a local Long Island conspiracy outsiders are not supposed to know anything about.

Now you've said too much. Be on the lookout for a black Towncar with 3 rounded Buick Park Ave portholes on each side...

Heh-heh...I go to the airport twice a week here in Phoenix, so I see black Town Cars all the time..limo services. I wouldn't mind having one for my daily driver, actually.

Wrong kind of portholes, we are talking windows here. Like the one on this example:

Haha, I know that's what you were talking about but another offensive thing I see around is portholes on EVERYTHING from a Camry to a 300 to an Elantra, etc.

Ya, people put port holes/speed holes on everything around here also...often coupled w/ bling wheels.
