Fans of recreational games will get a kick out of these mobile basements; vehicles that have been converted into play palaces. Grab some World of Warcraft at a stoplight, shoot some pool in the parking lot, or play some friends on the Xbox 360 on a long car ride.

Bosozoku is a Japanese subculture linked to gangs. These gangs will heavily mod their vehicles in specific ways to show their allegiance to other gang members, and to showcase their wealth. These designs may seem comical to outsiders, but they have a very real function in gang politics.
