The Japanese Have Landed

In honor of our compadres at Old Japanese Car and the grand opening of their forum, here’s a 1979 Toyota Carina advert. Instead of British Leyland products, which were busy not being built by striking auto workers, blokes wishing to dramatically scale the white cliffs of Dover had a new steed, one that disembarked by hovercraft and scared the crap out of local waterfowl. See, the Carina symbolizes OJC, and its landfall represents the British Isles finally getting their own nostalgic car forums. Okay, so it’s a stretch, but reading meaning into vague symbols is what all of Shakespeare’s works were based on. Tally ho, lads. Best of luck!
