Aside from the ghey exhaust system, that looks awesome.

They actually have a lot of US cars over that way, they're wicked into Astro Vans. Toyota will obviously never confirm it, but the whole craze of boxy little vehicles there, Scion XB, etc., is a result of them trying to capitalize on the idea of a "small Astro van".

Saw this on another board:

People have been asking what this is in the "2010 trends" thread, so I thought I'd make an appearance thread about it. I suppose it's like any other wacky JDM style (i.e. shakotan, yanky, vanning-zoku, Dekotora, etc), but I think this one is tits.

I first stumbled across this back in July on the Japanese RS Watanabe website in the "owner car" section.

It's been referred to as "Youga Base" style, "Hentai Vans", and a few other things, but apparently they just refer to their cars as "Dajjibans", or Dodge Vans. The Katakana to search for is "ƒ_ƒbƒWƒoƒ“".

If anyone finds any new blogs, sites, or images related to the Dajjiban thing, post them in here. I want moar.


The Basics:
-Dodge Vans (I've yet to see anything else, but maybe they don't get other American vans over there)
-Lowering
-Deep dish low-offset wheels (often 6-lug RS Wats, but I've seen Diamonds and others)
-White lettered tires
-minimalist interiors (CF, racing wheels, not typical van stuff, lots of period American stickers, very eclectic)
-V8 performance mods

They appear to be actually tracking these vans, which is absurd, but ****ing rad.

Here's the "Youga Base" blog site:

http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/r_q_collectibles


Some of the images I've found (I've saved tons):


Trackday at Ebisu Circuit. Obviously didn't work out so well for everyone, lol.


Is this normal engine placement? Really this far back? I guess the hoods are so short..

Interiors


Suspension shots: (I wonder if it's the same "swift" that makes bike shocks)

The ubiquitous Youga Base tag:


I want this shirt so bad:

Again, people are probably going to hate this to death, but I thought it was something new. So JDM it's USDM, lol.

More pics:


Funny perv references/Engrish:

Olive drab makes it look like a transport vehicle from "08th MS Team" or something.


I have to look and see if the USDM vans have these same tails. Looks different for some reason.


Guy built a model of his van:

Shocked Shocked Shocked F#%K! Who wants the two door and all my parts!? I NEED! One of those JDM caravans Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz

Hey whatever floats your boat LOL!

I could get the astro van, it actually looked cool but that caravan...damn...what a piece...of....ah...yup!

I almost died in one of those one night. We (7 16 yr old guys) thought it would be a good idea to open the doors, unlatch the captains chairs, and proceed to drive like maniacs scratch

Good idea at the time right!

Honestly, those modded Dodge cargo vans are pretty cool. Reminds me of the 70's van craze.

Those Caravans are money pits and almost never worth fixing when something breaks, lol. The Astro van, while the engine is a pain to work on (except when you can sit in the driver's seat and put parts right on the engine with the cover off), is the complete opposite. I'd drive a slammed one with big wheels, fo' sho.

Why do you think it was given to a 16yr old freshly licensed Smile

I have a '99 "Sport" (Factory spoilers & bug deflectors! Yeah!) with 140k that has been really reliable with nothing major breaking and shockingly little rust. Which is why I bought the Caprice - so I can unload the van before the inevitable catastrophic failure Very Happy.
