La Aduana: Bio-Diesel Toyota Dyna Firetruck Overland Camper

Have you ever thought to yourself how cool it would be to have a right hand drive Japanese firetruck with a bio-diesel engine and a covered rooftop deck accessed with a fold-out spiral staircase?

If anyone were to say we have the best jobs in the world, they’d be right.
