These post-war Japanese vehicles are so interesting. The amount of detailed design, engineering and care that went into these cars is just extraordinary. They were, of course, highly considered purchases in a era when Japan was emerging from the devastation of WWII. And so every little detail of the car is the product of careful design intent. The clearance lights in front. The way the rear view mirrors integrated with the doors. The flip up passenger compartment ventilation door on the front panel. All these details are so lovingly done.
