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
