I found this picture featuring a Suzuki Carry that reminds me a bit of a bemo:
Suzuki Carry kaido racer
Wish I could have attended that meeting!

As I said a few days ago I did have something special that is close to the kaido racers: the heavily modified bemo taxi busses I saw while visiting Jayapura (Papua, Indonesia):
Mitsubishi Colt (Minicab) bemo taxi bus in Jayapura
As you can see these busses are modified with deep dish rims (sticking far out of the bodywork), tsurikawa (but only on the inside), trunk and chin spoilers, foglights and a lot of them had headlight and/or taillight swaps. So pretty close to the real deal! 🙂
