When human ingenuity and automotive econoboxes come together, awesome things can happen. Case in point, India-based Holy Shift Garage took a rather conventional and dilapidated Suzuki Omni van and made a small, meaty monster. The original vehicle was pretty much useless, so they stripped it down to a bare shell and built it up from there. It received a new engine, transmission, suspension, and rear axle. Although it’s no rocket, it has more power than stock and also gains precious ground clearance to tackle less savory surfaces. It also received big Maxxis Trepador knobby tires, a full body roll cage, a roof rack with LED light bar, a rear motorcycle rack, a front-end bullbar, metal plates to replace the side windows, six amber driving lights, and even Jerry cans to keep fuel (or beer) at the ready. While we would never attempt to crash test it, the Battle Van looks ready for adventure.

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
