Japan is home to both some very cool things, and some very weird things. One of the coolest things is a racing series that sees Japanese drivers hooning old short-wheelbase Dodge vans around a racetrack. Apparently, the sport grew out of a common practice for motorcycle racers to buy these vans and use them to haul gear and bikes to the track.

The Hellwagon Is a Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Wagoneer
I always loved the look of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer. It combined the best elements of an SUV and a station wagon, with its tall body and classic “woodie” paneling on its sides. Over its many years in production, it typically packed a hefty V8 engine.

Ford Falcon Transformed into a Library Tank

Ford Falcon Transformed into a Library Tank
This is definitely one of the stranger custom vehicles I’ve seen in a while, but it’s actually pretty cool. To celebrate World Book Day a few years back, the guys at 7UP Argentina enlisted the help of an artist to create a custom car that doubles as a free library on wheels. While artist Raul Lemesoff could have just built any old book wagon, he went the extra mile, and converted an old 1979 Ford Falcon into what he call his Weapon of Mass Instruction.

Gorgeous 1965 Ford GT40 Replica by Active Power Cars for Sale
While the classic Ford GT40 is an incredible collector’s car, the fact is that they’re incredibly rare and expensive, and have zero in the way of modern conveniences.

The Brubaker Box Was The Most Awesome VW Bug Conversion Ever

The Brubaker Box Was The Most Awesome VW Bug Conversion Ever
Back in the 1970s, converting Volkswagen bugs into other things was a pretty popular pastime. I suppose it was the relative simplicity of their chassis design, and easily removable bodies that made them easy targets. One of the most amazing VW bug conversions I’ve ever seen has got to be the Brubaker Box. Curtis Brubaker would convert VW Beetles into a sort of a low minivan.
