On topic: Serious static problem

This is giving me fits. There's something strange with my minivan, that it
generates a *ton* of static electricity whenever I drive even a few
blocks. When I touch the metal of the door upon getting out, I get a
shock that hurts all the way up to the shoulder. The real problem, and
what makes this on topic, is that I use this vehicle to pick-up/transport
my classic beauties everywhere. I'm terrified that I'm going to pick up
that once-in-a-lifetime S-100 rescue or something and kill the guts with
one of these lightning bolts. What I do now is keep a wrist-strap and a
box of Bounce dryer sheets (don't laugh) in my jockey box. Does anyone
know what could be causing this?
