North Vancouver couple Christina Yau and John Syslak were used to getting special attention every time they crossed the Canada-U.S. border in the custom travel van they built for themselves more than 10 years ago.

Border agents almost always pulled them aside to take a closer look. It didn’t, however, have anything to do with the people in the van or any fresh produce they may have been taking across the border. It’s just that the border guards couldn’t help themselves from taking a moment to have a look inside that sweet, sweet van. One border guard in particular was blown away by the custom van, which the couple called Casablanca.
