I'm sort of left speechless, so no further comment, except to note that the side-view mirrors seem woefully underaccessorized, relatively speaking.

The scary thing is that, in Japan, this car could belong to a 55 year old businessman.

Wow.
Hmmmmmm.
Advantages of having a car that looks like……like…..THAT:
1) Easy to find your car in a crowded parking lot
2) Can drive solo in the carpool lane with impunity
3) Can prove to your blogging photographer brother that something can, indeed, be visually bone-jarring.

I observed this myself in japan in some of the college kids’ mini-mini vans. Not quite to this extent though. Not sure what the draw is.
