Ridiculous? Definitely. Awesome? Of course. If I ever moved to southern California a 60's VW Bus or Ford Econoline Van would be high on my list of things to purchase. Take out the seats in the back and throw in a surfboard rack and a futon and your good to go. Would I lower it as much as these guys, of course not. But there has to be something said for pushing it to the limit. True pan scrapers.
