Here's one fresh from the "I was wrong" category: I used to pity the owners of vans and trucks, for suffering uninvited paint jobs. Some of them nicer than others. But now that I have had some time to think about it, I realize that I was wrong. Seeing how these vehicles are owned by businesses, and generally operated by random and reckless drivers with little regard for the safety of others, or even the condition of the van, it is a big safety issue that they can be told apart, and if need be: identified.
By having an instantly recognizable van, there is no getting around anonymously anymore, making the decorators of these killing machines nothing short of a safety squad. I salute them!
Free your spirit.
Another upside: if you don't want to have your truck designed by random strangers, you are forced to have it decorated yourself. Trucks have gone from crap to canvases:

And on the reverse:
