I am new here, and I am from Croatia in Europe. I like so much vintage Sansui audio products from 70ies made in Japan (OK, that is not the same like Japanese car but that is me!).
My father had very nice Japanese car MAZDA 1500, and as I can remember it was made robust, nice (for that time) and it was high quality, because it passed more than 300.000 km without some big malfunction!
OK, that is for beginning from me!
