What do you get when you take the famous Island Hopper Vanagon from Magnum P.I., chop 11 inches from its height, and place it over a Toyota MR2? The picture says it all. The guys at LeMons New England gave it a shot for their Halloween Hooptiefest. They turned the Vanagon into a bit of a racer.

The recipe: Take one third-gen Toyota MR2 that was wrapped around a shopping-mall light pole in a fit of ill-advised hoonage, take a Vanagon body and chop 11? out of its height, do some cutting and pasting. Yes, it is now an MR2 with a giant box-shaped airbrake and 800 pounds of additional weight… and one of the greatest race cars we have ever seen. Will it be faster than the GoWesty LeMons Vanagon, with its VR6 power? We’ll see on Saturday.
