    I'm going out on a limb here, but I'm betting he drove it.

    nah, get some nice speakers in there, semi decent amp and couple of 15" LCDs to the cealing, make your seats fully reclinable and get the back seats out,

    voila ultimate party vagon

    you might even be able to squeeze decent mattress in the back

    I hear ya. It would also make a superb surfmobile IMHO. Plus, the gear-shift makes for a really good left-arm workout. It's like trying to move a broomhandle that's been wedged into a bucket full of large rocks.
