If you were a kid growing up in the early 1980’s and you liked cars then you watch one of two shows: The Dukes of Hazzard or the A-Team. Now everyone knows about the Dukes of Hazzard, as there are a shitload of General Lee replica’s out there. The A-Team however is a different story. There were 4 members of the A-Team and because of this they needed a vehicle that could not only transport them in style, but it had to be fast, comfortable and look like it would punch your Grandmomma’ in the mouth.
Enter the 1983 G-Series van from GMC. Unlike the 1969 Charger used by the Duke Boys, the G-Series van that the A-Team drove around in was about as sporty as a Yugo. The van was owned by Sargent B.A. Baracus who was played by Mr. T. That meant the van needed to be all attitude, go like hell and look the business while still carrying 4 grown men around. The designers came up with a wicked black, red and gun metal gray paint scheme, shod the van with turbine style wheels, added some driving lights, a cow-killer push bar and presto – instant BAD ASS!
