i sold my van a few years back to someone in japan and tonight i stumbled across it on the internet. seems it's been making a rukus over there (in a good way) and people are eating it up. it's funny because over here, people didn't know what to think.

when i first seen the pic, i knew it was my van. after looking around for 3 hours i tracked it down to be sure. man i'm excited to see it again, i miss it dearly. i miss it so much i've been wanting to build another one every since i sold it.

This Dodge B-series Van looked like something out of a cartoon with its shortened wheelbase, a fitting modification to adapt it to Japanese roads!

hell yeah !! i was excited to see the picture of it in japan but then to see it was in 2 magazines, thats the real kicker.
the first show it was in here, it took best in show but that was on the local scene. when it was in one of the biggest mopar show's in the country, it got nothing. the next van i'm starting on is a 98 dodge panel, just need time to put a new motor in it. then the real fun begins lol.

Where do you find time to do all this stuff that you do? Where do you have the space to do it? Do you have a regular job?
Or as your name implies do you actually live in the junkyard? I'm just wonderin here cause you are always on some crazy kind of project. Be it two wheels or four.

i make time to work on stuff, my life revolves around cutting shit up and making it different that the norm lol. i do have a full time job at a body shop, mostly heavy hits.
now about the junk yard... i was raised playing in the family junk yard so you learn how to do everything and build whatever you want for dirt cheap. now it's just my dad running the place alone and i'm over there all the time after work helping out and playing around. i only build bikes at home in a 1 car garage and everything else is built at the junk yard. i get bored easy so building shit helps pass the time.
