When I went to the Estima Meeting in October (2016), someone mentioned T Selection to me. When my friend in Sendai said he would meet me after his work, I figured I would see what was available near there. Sure enough T Selection wasn’t too far.
One of the Van Kulture brothers, Dell, posted a previa that was being turbo charged. This slipped my mind, but it wasn’t til later when it was pointed out to me. I figured it was still a project. Keep this in mind.
When I got to T Selection, I wanted to see the vans that were built. I was surprised to see other cars that were built such as Celsiors and a Kei car. The manager gave the okay to take pictures and I started with looking at the Estimas. I saw this blue slammed one and started to take pictures. He then opened up the sliding door, with custom hinges. He then showed me it was a PREVIA (not an Estima). But let me point out why it was interesting.
- Dual sliding doors with custom hinges
- Dual charged (turbocharged added)
- Converted to manual
I started to asking questions and he told me it was one of the few Previas in Japan. It was a well done car and as I said, I was quite surprised at all the work!
After being blown away, I started to look at the other vans and cars there. There was a good bunch of finished cars and cars that looked to be in progress.
