It's bizarre, I know, but would you believe that retrofit vans are a whole subculture? (Of course you would, what isn't?)

It turns out that the first and second generation Chrysler vans came with a wolf-in-sheepish-clothing 2.5L turbo that absolutely screams when you let it out to play. There is video on the site of these vans smoking stock mustangs and corvettes in the quarter mile.

Interestingly, many choose not to alter the exterior. This preserves the "sleeper" effect - i.e. you never see it coming.

Great blog btw - got the hookup through John Lilly, with whom I've no doubt you are acquainted.

Cool.
