Theme Tuesdays: Vans Can play too

1

The concept of theme Tuesdays here on Grosirbajuanak is simple, every Tuesday I pick a theme and post a collection of vehicles with that theme that meet the stance criteria (modified suspension that fit the vehicles overall theme). This weeks theme Tuesday topic is: vans.

When people think of modified vans its hard not to think of those monsters from the 70s these days certain vans in the right hands can look down right amazing. Here is a collection of a few of the  better  ones I have seen recently.

VW
The Volkswager  crowd are pretty much the innovators of the extremely lowered vans (well bus to them but lets not split hairs).

Since these vans like to return to the earth so easily they are normally not in your  typical show condition but that ads character

While a little beat up this VW Bus/van is flying both the stance and hippy flag

Imports
Import vans (the tasteful ones ) are sometimes done up in ‘tuner’ style but more usually , really the VIP style suits them best.

V.I.P. style odysseys are really popular
The Honda Odyssey is a very common platform.
I preffer the black ones myself.

Toyotas Previa's are also  pretty popular platforms, the fact that they are mid engine rear wheel drive is also pretty interesting

Domestic’s
I’m sure all of us have seen a modified Safari or two. The 70s American van craze might have blown over but that doesn’t mean people stopped modifying American vans.

Who would expect APC of all comapnys to be involved in the build a a supercharged rwd dodge Caravan that looks badass?
I was wrong, but really who would expect APC of all companies to be involved in the build a a supercharged rear wheel drive dodge Caravan that looks so badass?

The Famous ones
I couldn’t justifiably have a post about modified vans and leave out some of the most famous custom vans around.

Sure it needed bleach for help with burnouts but it looked damn cool
