Hurrying back to the hotel in Naha Okinawa before the full force of the typhoon hits and saw a classic Japanese car.
The Mitsubishi Dingo.
Couldn`t take a photo due to the pounding rain but had a Lindy flashback.
Can`t blame that one on Seventies medicinal compounds
I don`t think this brand of car was ever sold in Australia.

kombizz,
I have been looking for a mitsubishi DINGO for the past 3 weeks and they are as scarce as gay bars in Tehran.
I still have 9 days in Nippon to find and photograph the elusive beast!!!

On the case.

Yoshikawa-sama,

Perhaps the vehicle you seek is like the wind....invisible to mere mortals such as us.

It sure as hell doesn't look like a Dingo, V's Mitsubishi Dingo

Do they run around in packs?

Snared the thucker this afternoon in a carpark in Takayama in the Japanese Alps.

Hey RR

Nice pic........but what's the draw behind an elusive minivan? Intrigued FreedomLanders™ want to know. Looks roomy......convenient for driving around the world and living in.

I like the "Nice Koban" shot. That must have brought up a giggle.
