Nicolas Francoeur Neverending Story

We’ve officially got to the frightening stage of remakes. This is the stage where Hollywood has remade almost every single movie reasonable worth remaking, and even some that weren’t. Now they’re onto the classics. How long will it really be before films like Psycho or Halloween get remade? Oh, wait.

Bought in the Summer of 1979 for $7900, and originally themed “Stairway to Heaven”, the owner decided to customize the van around The NeverEnding Story in 1989. The first film is represented on the passenger side, while NeverEnding Story II is pictured on the driver’s side. More photos after the jump.
