â€¦ and you KNOW it must be a good daily driver because it would have to pass Shaken, the very strict Japanese vehicle inspection â€¦

Very clear it’s really looked after too. In immaculate condition. Not really a car (or indeed truck) person, but there was something about this, and quite possibly where it was parked, that really appealed.

A classic for sure. GMC panel wagons are even rare here (in ‘murika). American motor vehicles had a certain brutal beauty in the 1940s and 1950s.

Interesting. It must be an especially rare beast in Japan then.
Yeah, there’s definitely something about it. Spotted it from a bridge quite a way away, and it even stood out from there.

I’ve been enjoying your photos very much since I found your site a few months ago – they tell great stories. Thank you!!
Love this one too; the angle of the picture and the black windscreen make it look as if it has accidentally arrived from another time and place out of the dark on the left, and is about to disappear again, any minute now..
Or maybe I should just catch up on sleep a bit… 🙂

Thank you very much. That’s wonderful to hear.
Lack of sleep or not, that’s a great way of looking at it. And as I’m unlikely to ever see it again, in many ways it has disappeared.
