A pair of Canadian environmentalists have embarked on a four-month journey to break the Guinness World Record for "longest journey by a car using alternative fuel" by traveling 45,000 km (27,961 miles) across North America in a Japanese-import Mitsubishi Delica 4x4 van converted to run on waste vegetable oil (WVO/SVO)… » 12/01/08 2:30pm 12/01/08 2:30pm

What's Your Favorite Van Of All Time?

Though we'll probably never have a "Maximum Van Day," yesterday's hard-living QOTD got us thinking about vans and vanning. Though the idea mostly died out in the 1970's in this country, the spirit of the van has lived on in Japan and in the hearts of anyone that owned a Supervan 2 matchbox car.

Homy Wagon V6 Super Long!

Turn no further than the Nissan Homy Super Long when it comes time to carry ten people at length. The Homy is not to be confused with the much less luxurious Datsun Homer, or Mitsubishi Delica Space Gear Super Exceed.

Now, More Than Ever: Mitsubishi Delica Exceed on eBay


Our somewhat disturbing obsession with boxy and oddly designed Space Wagons continues. Out of all of them, the Exceed remains supreme. This Exceed features more than a few FUSO style mirrors, a whole heap of nerf bars, seating for eight including swiveling captains chairs, a 2.5L turbodiesel, and what appears to be a… » 3/13/07 2:45pm 3/13/07 2:45pm

Mitsubishi Delica Space Gear SUPER EXCEED!

No, really. We don't make this stuff up. The third generation of the mighty Delica boasted a turbodiesel powerplant and 4WD. This capability along with plenty of mirrors, lights, nerf bars, ladders, and roof racks transcended the Delica beyond mere space wagon and into super classification.
