“I have now officially sold out,” writes Chris Kalman. “I work more than I climb. I pay rent and sleep in a house. I’m getting rich off of writing–so rich, in fact, that I do my grocery shopping inside the store now.”

Today, we bring you the story of Chris’ life through the eras of three vans, “Ford,” “Chevy” and “Van,” to his current, nameless, fancypants car. How do you reconcile a dirtbag soul with changing goals and dreams?
