One of the biggest challenges facing owners of classic cars like Steve’s Hakosuka, is often the availabili­ty of parts.

They don’t speak any English, but I’ve been able to buy a lot of Hako parts from them over the years, so they’ve been invaluable contacts.’ So, as with many aspects of life, when it comes down to it, successful­ly owning a coveted classic is often a case of not what you know, but who.
