Unlike similar classic cars this example has lived in Japan, in Japan they don’t use salt on most roads, the climate is warm, and very, very dry, but not intense heat such as other hot countries, this creates the perfect environment for a car to live and as a result cars do not deteriorate or age there like normal vehicles would elsewhere. JDM vehicles are also are subject to the “Japanese Shaken” a strict government test to ensure cars on Japanese roads are kept to an extremely high standard, as cars get older this gets stricter, and as a result most cars are not kept longer than 6 or 7 years, so classic cars of this age still in Japan are rare indeed. Japan is a very congested place, road tolls are high, and as a result many use Japans far advanced public transport systems on a daily basis, hence cars get far less use which results in very low mileage. Finally, foreign cars like this that were imported into Japan were vastly expensive when new, and deemed special from day one, Japanese owners have a culture of keeping special cars such as this a long time, so many have been in very long term and enthusiastic ownership too. Many believe these are the best classic cars you can buy
