Check out this 356 van. I think it's great. :P

But it's not very practical... :(

Ain't any fibreglass in this baby... :shock:

Umm yes, I don't think I'd choose it over a standard 356. The bits that I really like are the deep black paint and those white wall tyres. :P

eek that's one expensive van based on a 356!

Not my cup of tea, then again not a great lover of 356's

That’s absolutely lovely, even if it is impractical.

Y’know, there’s just about enough space above the engine there to fit a really impressive sound system … it would make a show-stopping cruiser for custom car rallies.

Mmmm, I'm unsure about this one.

I admire the effort and the skill involved but to do this to a 356 seems such a waste.

what about a 3.3 turbo (aircooled of course !), i'm sure the bodywork could be tweaked again to fit

If you don't like the idea of them converting a 356 into a van, you definitley won't like what they did to this one....

Even I don't like this. :sign11:

The Taj Ma Garaj isn't a Indian take away, but a motor museum. Check out there web page here... http://www.tajmagaraj.com/collection.php (Not all the cars are as crazy as this.) 8)
