Imagine being able to buy a 4WD pickup that's not 19 feel long and 5,500 pounds? Where do I sign?

With my limited Kanji, I've made out this truck once belonged to a store called Kawamataka (not 100% sure on the name the truck's a bit far to read clearly) in Toyama Prefecture on the Sea of Japan. I wonder if that store is still in business.

From doing deliveries in Japan, to being someone's unique runabout in the US. What an amazing life this workhorse has lived.

Nice. This is on N. Detroit, right around the corner from my place.

Nice little workhorse. I like the front fascia and the font "TOWNACE" is written in. The shot of the Japanese window sticker is pretty cool too.

kei trucks are awesome, but i never understood the justification for their relatively high prices when landed and sold stateside. around here, they will camobomb them, fit ugly, oversized chrome wheels and sell them to rednecks as "deer lease transporters."

you might even see one stacked on the back of a trailer being pulled by a dodge or GM pickup with a four wheeler strapped to the bed.
