It was a busy few months. In May, I was in LA (unfortunately didn't meet up with VK SoCal), then Japan for 2 weeks (met with Taguchi-san) and shortly after, I would go to Vancouver BC (which I met with the brothers out that way).
Going to Japan, I often times see vans. But vans being tuned and built, I like to see more!

Various pictures from VK members. Since I don't want to spam making individual posts, I decided to group many of them together. The focus is showing the different models, styles, regions and chapters. It's interesting that many regions have a variation or regional specific vans.

There is a shop that a few of my friends go to. The shop is called RE-Works and they do some great customizing. They do paint, interiors, but one thing I absolutely love, they do custom work. You give them the idea and they will make something.
I asked Sawada-san if I could post these pictures and he said yes.
I was delighted to see them remake this 1st generation Toyota Alphard! The outcome was very captivating for me.
