Jerry Patrick, owner of AKA Junk, has built amazing replicas of TV and movie vehicles for over ten years. His Georgia-based company specializes in custom builds for a variety of purposes, including weddings, TV and films, photo shoots, marketing campaigns, festivals and other special events.
Among the replicas they’ve built, this Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo is one of the most impressive. Jerry and his team took a 1967 Dodge Ram and transformed it into the ultimate mystery-solving machine.
It took AKA Junk about three months to customize this Mystery Machine.
They matched the van as close to the cartoon as possible, with details like a Scooby Doo tag for the back handle, flower hubcaps, and the purple front and rear bumpers.
For the interior, they took a little bit of creative freedom since it’s rarely shown in the cartoon.
They installed 100 feet of LED lighting. The whole gang from Fred to Daphne is decaled on the side, above the comfy blue and green seats.
Their Mystery Machine is available for display and photo opportunities.
In addition to the Mystery Machine, they’ve built golf cart replicas of Tater and Sparky from Disney’s animated movie Cars. You can buy your own, or just rent one for the day if you’re in the Atlanta area.

Zoinks! These are so awesome. The company, AKA Junk, has also made replicas of the Batmobile, Mach 5 from Speed Racer, and KITT from Knight Rider. Props to their incredible talent! For more information, check out their website or like them on Facebook.
