Kei Twins: A 1973 Mitsubishi Minica Skipper IV, and A 1970 Minica GSS
July 17, 2016
So, I've cobbled together some footage and old photographs of a pair of sporty Kei cars from Mitsubishi. One is a 1970 Minica 70 GSS, and the other is a 1973 Minica Skipper S.
This Minica coupe was built in 1973. It has a 359cc inline 2 engine.
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>
