    gotta remember how many bases we had on the mainland back in the early 70's. Alot of GI's took their cars over there. You could order American cars over there too. If you had a ID card gas was pretty much the same price as the US. If you had to buy it off base $$$$. My friends brother bought a 70 GTX over in Okinawa back in the 70's off a GI. His wife wanted furniture so he agreed to sell the car when Art knocked on the door. Funny thing, I ended up with the car in sierra vista back in the early 80's. 440 4 barrel 4 speed dana 60 with a air grabber hood. Like a idiot I traded it for stereo equipment. jim

    You're such a young pup...;)

    The first Japanese car imported to the United States didn't get here until 1957 - a Toyota Crown.

    A couple of my cars are older than that...

    I just drove this one onto the semi to ship down to my nephew in Phoenix last Wednesday. It's been in the family since my Dad took it in on trade from the original owner in 1968. Dad sold it to my brother - that's my sister-in-law with her new husband (brother passed away in 1993):

    And then there is my 1949 Limo that my Dad bought used in 1958 - just one year after the first Toyota landed in the United States. That's my Dad the last time he saw the car:

    The early Japanese cars weren't much to look at or ride in. The best thing that could be said about them was they were - CHEAP.
