Ris­ing clas­sics

New Zealand Classic Car - - READERS’ WRITES -

Be­ing a long-time New Zealand Clas­sic Car mag­a­zine sub­scriber and read­ing let­ters to the ed­i­tor, I agree with Keith Hegin­botham’s let­ter re­gard­ing Ja­panese clas­sics.

My wife has owned this 1983 Mit­subishi Star­ion for over 20 years. It was driven daily for 10 years and has been shed stored for the last 10 years. She asked me to do it up, to which I replied, “It’s a Jap crap­per”. How­ever, I se­cretly re­moved it from the shed three years ago and re­stored it as a Christ­mas sur­prise (tears of joy).

I would like to see more ar­ti­cles on Ja­panese clas­sics. We are both clas­sic car nuts — with a Jaguar XJS V12 con­vert­ible, Mk4 Zo­diac, Mor­ris ute, three SD1 Rovers, and three trac­tors.

Please con­sider this make of car if you are down this way.

There’s no doubt that Ja­panese clas­sics are be­com­ing more and more de­sir­able for clas­sic car en­thu­si­asts. We are al­ways on the look­out for nice ex­am­ples to fea­ture in the mag­a­zine, so we’ll be sure to look you up next time we’re pass­ing. AFW
