Not only have I managed to track down another Holden here in Japan, but I also got to take it for a drive! The Ute is of the SS grade, so has the LS1 V8 engine, and does indeed look sporty. There's an aftermarket titanium exhaust, but beyond that it's mostly stock.
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>
