Daihatsu's Humobilty World: A Tour of Daihatsu's Automotive Heritage

April 23, 2017

Last year me and a friend made an appointment to tour Daihatsu's automotive museum located at their factory just north of Osaka. While not an overly large collection, they do display several iconic models from over a century of engine, and automotive production.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>

Wasabicars: Back in 2012 I happened upon a junkyard filled with some 1970's US muscle cars. <See video below.>

Left to rot - Abandoned American muscle-cars in Japan

January 25, 2012

I usually spend my free time exploring castles, but that's not my only interest. I also like cars, especially from the 60's & 70's, especially with a V8 and extra especially when they are in unrestored condition.
