Why did fantasy van art become a thing?

Fantasy van art, what and why? When I was little I remember seeing these conversion vans with Conan or Thor or whatever airbrushed on the outside and never thought much of it. Now, though, I am curious about what this phenomenon was all about.

I can totally understand if the explanation is something as simple as "fantasy van art is awesome." But I am curious about the culture at the time that made something like this become the thing to do. If anyone has any specific info I would appreciate it.
