Scooby Van impostor remains!

Scooby Van stays put for over one month in Hoboken!

5/7/2012 Update:

Hoboken411 reader Tom has an update about the enigma called the Hoboken Scooby Van:

“Since your update on April 5th, the creepy van still hasn’t moved. I live across the street from where it’s been parked and I’ve counted at least 6 or 7 tickets that it’s gotten since it’s been sitting here. Right now it has 3 tickets and a notice from the HPU that the permit is expired and is subject to being booted and towed. The HPU notice has been on there for over a week and nothing has happened, probably because it would fall apart if they tried to move it out of there.

Quite the contrary to when my car was booted one day after my permit expired. Gotta love the HPU…”

President Obama acts on Hoboken Scooby Van!

4/5/2012 Update:

The fruity Scooby Van that was parked at 10th and Garden for so long, got to be such an eyesore for residents, that one prankster wrote with lipstick on the windshield:

“Take me, move me, tow me! Please Mayor Zimmer, President Obama, do something quick – I am dying!”

Well – since we already know that Mayor Zimmer ignores letters from concerned visitors and residents, that it HAD to be President Obama that got that message – and apparently had the “dying” jalopy moved a few blocks away near Grand & 11th.

While Barack at least did more than our inept administration – he still didn’t do enough!

Stoner Van in Hoboken – Scooby & Shaggy not impressed

11/17/2011:

Spotted this puke-green old-school VW van on 10th Street the other day. Some might call it a “Scooby Van,” however as you can see below – Shaggy & Scooby Doo are not impressed.

Also noticed a ridiculous bumper sticker on the back which read “Got Vibes?” I mean how nonsensical is that? Everyone has vibes, whether they’re good or bad! It’s like asking anyone on the street: “Got skin?” How stoned do you need to be to “dig” a slogan like that?

Also there is a Blue sedan (ford or chrysler) rag top on Grand between 2nd and 3rd that hasn’t moved since hurricane irene. It has a for sale sticker in it and the windows are all busted out. I don’t think it runs and it never even gets ticketed on street cleaning days because I think the owners know someone at the HPU. It is really difficult to repect any organization that “bends” the rules for some but is overally strict for others.

Complete BS

Think I know that same car..super old! I actually think the owner does move across the street when the street cleaner comes thru then moves it back… however, I think more than once he parks so as to leave a ton of space between him and other cars, but not enough for another car to park… protecting this piece of junk car, and leaving less spaces for everyone else. rude[quote comment=”215459″]Also there is a Blue sedan (ford or chrysler) rag top on Grand between 2nd and 3rd that hasn’t moved since hurricane irene.

I love that van too! Definitely NOT an eyesore.

I have a feeling that the Vibes sticker is in reference to the Gathering of the Vibes music festival and not hippy nonsense talk.

That van is always on 9th or 10th near Garden. I’ve been curious to know the owner’s story.
