The Hiroshima Holden / Trekking and Tracking down a 1978 HZ Ute in Japan
December 05, 2020
It is just incredible that there is/was a rusty, old Holden ute rotting away in Japan's mountains, and this is the non-incredible story of me going and having a look. It's not like I climbed Mt.
This HZ ute was built in 1978. It has a 4,143cc V8 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>
