Around here, the only real customizations you will see on vehicles are tiny wheels and maybe some hydraulics to make the lowriders bounce around while driving down the road. Well, those modifications are pretty tame (and kind of lame) compared to this awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles van!
Jason Ybarra built this awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles van that looks pretty close to the one in the cartoon from the 80s and was actually based off of the toy version of the van. This van is a 1972 VW Transporter that cost $2,000 to buy and then an additional $18,000 to overhaul into the TMNT van.
This 70 horsepower van gets about 17 miles to the gallon and lacks many of the comforts of today’s like air conditioning. That alone would make me not want this van, no matter how awesome it is!
The picture below is impressive but if you really want a sense for how amazing this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles van is, check out the video over at Crave Online. I was going to embed the video below but I couldn’t figure out how to turn off the autoplay feature.
