Huzzah!  But there's more to this story, you didn't tell HOW it came to pass. :)

You're absolutely right...Howard and I and one of his granddaughters were running around Fayetteville.  When we got back to his house, "Phibby" presented us with Myron Pitts' business card and told us that he was interested in the story behind the van.  We talked about it for a bit, and decided that an interview wouldn't hurt.  Some positive publicity for The Show is always a good thing.  Mr. Pitts came over, took some pictures, and interviewed us; the rest is history.

Futurama unites in many unexpected ways. :)

Hey Flounder, have you researched how to get the PE logo onto the van? A custom laser print might work, and not break the bank...

I was curious about the same thing.  I see he's got one on the back and I heed something about the same size for a little project I've mentioned elsewhere.  Enquiring minds want to know ...



Oh, and in case there's anyone who hasn't put the pieces together, Howard is aka Ramon51.  :thumbsup:

Well, I found this (https://www.brandsoftheworld.com/logo/planet-express), but the text doesn't look spot on to me. However, it is an EPS file, so would be simple to load into Illustrator and try to make better...
