Classic car, Subaru 360

Subaru 360, Tokyo
Subaru 360, Tokyo
This is the first Japanese small car, Subaru 360 and it is displayed at Edo-Tokyo museum.

This was launched out at 1958, about 40 years ago, for a bread-and-butter car, volkswagen. It is a little similar to Volkswagen Beetle.

The design looks like insects and I love it.

I have been that museum when I last visit Tokyo. It's a very fun place!
About the car, it's so symbolic in Japanese motor industry, isn't it?

This is like the VW Beetle. I remember cars were made to look more like American cars in when I was in Japan. Some ladies began to wear Western Clothes and they tried hard to walk in high heel shoes but were not very good at it and often twisted their ankles. But that has all changed now. The kimonos are packed away and only used for very special occasions. The Geisha and Maiko are almost gone from the streets and big crowds of children gather around them when they are spotted.

Thank you for coming to my blog. I appreciate it a lot.

This car is a bit like Fiat 500 too. "A bread-and-butter car"! I didn't know this nice expression, in France, little cars are often called "pot de yaourt".

I thought Fiat 500 when I saw the image - looks like it would be a fun car to own today.

Nice! I wish they still made cars with this much personality.

I think my favourite vintage japanese car I''ve seen is the Mazda Carol.
