Kei car magazines 

 Just a glimpse into what the Kei car culture is about in Japan.   

This is my friend’s Mira.     

Honda got it right with the N series 




Mira the Mini

This car is very practical and you would definitely want to have one in your collection. 

The number plate reads “TOFUYA” which is what the owner does. He runs a Tofu shop and allowed the n. plate to be shown. 

Front of a Mini mounted to a walk through Daihatsu Mira is a formidable combination. 

As he sells Tofu at in the car, he’s chosen the rear door that opens upward because it keeps him and the customers dry when it rains although the door that opens sideways is more popular. 

The interior is clean and roomy. Check out the speakers up in the ceiling. 

660 cc. 
As you can see the hoodie pops open. Thanks for taking it apart so I could take the picture. 


Meca Dock is specialised place that makes these series in Japan. 

Thanks for the owners for allowing us to post it here. 

Oh! Really?

That was the reaction of a friend when he saw what’s under the hood. 

Before introducing the next DDJ machine let’s take a look at the old DDJ drive. 

This Nissan March 1997 used to drive me everywhere. Although, for Japanese standards, it’s a pretty old car, it was such a special car that I feel obligated to pay a tribute to such an iconic vehicle. Since I first drove it I knew this car had a lot of potential and indeed it does. 


A little bit of rust and some scratches  here and there but it was definitely a fun car to drive. 

Result of driving over black ice without snow tyres. 

Last mileage. 
Rest in peace old friend!! 

Nissan Primera

I was at the petrol station for a quick wash and this Nissan Primera parks next to me. This car is irresistible gorgeous. The owner seemed like to be in a hurry and so was I but I couldn’t miss this chance because I had been wanting to take pictures of this car for ages. 

The place didn’t have many options for a decent  background so hopefully I will meet him someday, somehow, somewhere else to get better shots. 

ガゾリンスタンドでちょっと車わあらてかえるつもりだたから、このNissan Primeraとなりにとまりました。この車はかっこいいです!まえから探してたからチャンス今しかないと思っておはなしをかけました。どちも急いでいてたからながく話ししてないです。


Thank you



This cars speaks for itself. Honestly as it can be, hard worker and about to retire, the car. Yes, the car. The grandpa I’m not so sure because Japanese people are always working, whether before or after retirement. 

This sir was unbelievably kind. He knows exactly what he has and said he was about to retire the car but he knows the value of it, especially because of its low mileage, just 65062km original from factory. 

This is not a super car but it has a super kind owner. This story was meant to be posted a while ago so by now the car is probably in its way to its new destination. 

Hope the car can find a new home.
