tmnt0.jpgWe’ve all seen custom nerd rides such as the ever popular Batmobile, Ecto-1, Kitt, the Back to the Future Delorean, but never have I seen this. Behold, the first ever real-life Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Turtle van!

23-year-old Brittney Schneck transformed her ‘94 Dodge Caravan into a kick-ass real-life Turtles van. According to Schneck, she had started working on the van last July, paying for it from a part-time cashier job and working in her father’s auto-detailing business while also going to college.

“The Turtles played a huge role in my childhood,” Schneck said. “Growing up with all my male cousins, playing Ninja Turtles while my Uncle Harry (Uncle Shredder) chased us around doing an exact voice of The Shredder. He used to drive us all around in his Caravan, and when I see one, I just think of the Turtles and all the memories.”

A list of what Schneck has done so far:

-Two of three complete cleaning jobs
-New Anco wiper blades on front
-New steering wheel cover
-New spark plugs
