With the front of a VW bus, the body of a Citroen Camionette, the rear of a Chevrolet van, the Mystery Machine is a unique vehicle well suited for the transient lifestyle of our hapless investigators. It has two racks on the roof to carry oversized items, a removable couch-like back seat that can fit three people, and a large enough workspace in the back to carry Velma's radar device. Its funky flower design is sure to garner attention and help reduce the stress on those cold dark nights during an investigation.
The Mystery Machine was bought by Daphne's money, fixed up by Fred, equipped by Velma, and decorated by Shaggy and Scooby. For this reason, your whole gang sees the Mystery Machine as being an essential part of Mystery Inc's lifestyle and work. Its a haven from the elements (natural and supernatural) and a mode of travel. Without the Mystery Machine, you would be not only stranded physically, but its likely that your investigations would suffer from the lack of the resources which you have carefully packed inside the van. (Whether it be that map of the North Carolina coast hidden in the glove compartment or that box of Scooby Snacks under the driver's seat.) As long as the van exists, your business of Mystery Inc has the best office in the world of ghosthunting.... a mobile one.
