Everyone gets a window seat with these funky 10-door Suburbans

A pair of bizarre Suburban shuttles are up for bid in Kyoto, Japan, and there's less than a day left to pick up one, or both, of these strange, lengthy SUVs. The duo, consisting of an '83 and an '87, can be found on Yahoo Japan and are each powered by a 454 V-8 and three-speed transmission-presumably a Turbo 400.

Stageway is the usual manufacturer of these stretched vehicles- lots of variety over the years- some pics here: https://www.google.com/search?q=stageway&rlz=1C1LEND_enUS908US908&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X

The strangest part of this to me is not that they exist but that they exist in Japan.

Make an interesting RV conversion?

I'm sure that is going to be a beast to make a turn in. Crazy and odd and yet they are in Japan and not somewhere in the southern US.

Interesting that for service in Japan both are LHD models.
