After graduating high school, three Japanese buddies decided to follow their dream of a year-long cross-country road trip, from the northeastern island of Hokkaido to the southwestern one of Yakushima. But before they set out, the trio built one of the coolest road trip cars ever conceived, from a decrepit mid-80s Toyota Toyoace.

This is what the top floor looks like. Seriously, it’s nicer than some of the places I’ve lived.

You can see more of Japan’s beautiful natural scenery from the trip on this page, or learn more about the truck here. There’s also a movie of the transformation process. Jack Kerouac would be proud. And now, with trip over, the Toyoace is on sale for a mere $5,500, shipping not included.
