SIDENOTE: If you're familiar with Poochie, the 1961 Ford Econoline Vinvanco adopted a few years back, you already know a bit about Brian Jordan. His grandpa was the original owner of our seafoam green Econoline panel van. Brian's the guy responsible for putting her in our stable. But that’s another story for another time. Today's story is about the Shiner Beer van, and the masterminds who brought it to life. Brian Jordan and John Tullis are a writer/art director team at McGarrah Jessee in Austin, TX and the creators of the Shiner Premium van, which was completed recently and just featured in Rolling Heavy Issue #3. Vinvanco tracked these boys down to talk about this very cool 1974 Chevy G10 van.

We hired Darren Wenzel of Gasoline Art to airbrush the murals and they turned out incredible. We rounded out the eagle motif with a rattlesnake on the opposite side of the van.
VIII: You were contacted to have the van appear in Rolling Heavy. Seeing as it's not the most politically correct van magazine out there, how was that broached to your client?
