• Anyone who's ever seen Kitano "Beat" Takeshi's film Hana-Bi would want this just to reenact the snowy murders of a bunch of Yakuza across Hokkaido. Or just to take one's wife on a lovely vacation while running from the police. Either actually.

  • great little "swamp buggy" as a friend called mine
    RHD issues are getting the wiper and turn switch figured out
    on a manual, you have to retrain your hand as it is the SAME pattern as sitting LHD but hard to remember that 1st is AWAY from you
    on this one… I had one here in canada… timing belt needs to be done, heads /gasket known failure point, block heater mandatory esp if glow plugs original… peppy not going to win any races… fun to offroad as RIGHT over the axle (harsh ride at times)… short wheelbase… best on has a poptop and you can camp… success to whomever buys this… make sure to have a parts supplier as not going to find consummables at pep boys/ canadian tire! (brakes, filters, etc.)
