"Rape Vans" (Dajiban) are the HOT SHIZ in Japanland I guess

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:

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.

I can dig it.

Strangely enough, me too. Maybe partly b/c my first vehicle that I drove when in HS was my parents 89 Astro Van. lol

it would be way cooler if they had landscape murals on the side...

Oh, **** that. I want a life-size mural of Edvanna the Elven Princess in a troll-forged chainmail bustier vanquishing Lesser Orcs with her Enchanted Vorpal Blade.

Me too. My Dad had an '86 B250 back in the day. I always wondered what it would be like to do it up.
Yes, that is the normal placement of the engine.

Could be surplus firesale stuff from American Military Bases or Embassies.
Whatever it is... it's cool.

This is hilarious. I love it when our stuff is cool just because it's ours.
Go go you crazy Japanese Dajjiban nuts!
