I love the stub nose PU's, but this one should be posted in the "nice vehicles that people have destroyed with bad taste" thread.

With the tsunami TV videos we saw of tons of these things being washed away. No wonder they auction for a few hundred dollars.
And in the north they have had radiation contamination in close proximity to the Nuke plant.
That example looks rough enough it could have been one of flood victims. Does it glow at night?

Now that's a cool looking mini! (assuming its 4x4?) I'd be proud to have that one in my driveway!

Only a little though, Fort St John.

Some of the Kei vans have 20,000 km's and sell for under $500, one of the motorhomes I showed sold for just under a grand, but not sure of there radiation levels.

Great thing about the big offroad expo vehicles is the owners are welcoming of nuts like me that just have to pull up beside them and say hello, to ask about their rig and travels! A swiss couple in a nice mog took my contact information and my offer to stay at my house in Chiang Mai Thailand when they get there next year.

And of course L300 Delica's rock!

Yeah they're great little 4x4's as Fishenough will attest to I'm sure. These are bigger than the kei cars and highway capable. Turbo diesel 2.5, old school mechanical diesel and 7-seaters if you keep all the seats in them.

And tha DAF was a monster! Beautifully done inside and the guy was happy to come out and tell his story.
