    Need some help getting an email written in japanese

    Hey guys, I want to get in touch with the person who runs the site linked below. Considering it's basically a bunch of debonair guys one of them must have a source for parts for my debonair.

    if anyone can help me out, pm me.

    charlie, I can probably do as good as the translaters. They usually end up with a lot of broken sentences that read like a bad spam.

    Thanks redzone.

    Oh I just like seeing what the translators do with technical words and phrases. But I work with German so at least I can pretty much read what is being spit out, as I expect you can with Japanese.
    Looks like Red has you covered though.

    Looks like I'm a little late to the party!
    I sat down with my girlfriend and she helped type this e-mail up for me. If you can't see the characters or would prefer for me to send the email let me know (or if you have any revisions)!

    Hope this helps!

    こんにちは、私の名前はショーン(Shau n)といいます。
    アメリカに住んでいます。
    最近、デボネアをアメリカで買いま た。
    アメリカではデボネアは売られてい いので、すごく珍しいです。
    このサイトに載ってます。
    viewtopic.php?t=11395

    フルでレストアしようと思っていま 。
    あなたのサイトをネットで見つけま た、晴らしいと思います。
    もしも、デボネアの部品や関連物な を扱っているところを知っていたら えてほしいと思っています。
    よろしくお願いします。

    Hi,
    My name is Shaun and I live in America. I recently bought a Debonair. Since the Debonair was never sold in America it's a pretty rare car here! You can see it here: viewtopic.php?t=11395
    I plan on fully restoring this car!
    I found your site on the internet and I think it's great. I was wondering if you knew where to find any Debonair parts or other related things.
    Looking forward to hearing from you
    Thanks

    The Japanese is a little different than the English but for the most part, the meaning is all there (and since she did all of the work for me it sounds plenty polite and doesn't sound like a 3 year old wrote it, haha).

    Hope I helped!
    Let me know if there's anything else I can do!
    Cheers
    David

    Yeah I can read it, I'm typing with a old japanese ps2 keyboard. my japanese just isnt that great anymore lol.

    Funny, that last line, man I said that so many times when I was in japan back in 2000. If things go the way they are with work I may be finishing up my degree and heading that way in 2 or 3 years again.

    Thank your gf for me!

    Heck Esyoten speaks english. Very cool. He is a very nice guy, and filled me in a bit with the car, and how hard it is to find parts for. I have some links though.

    Thanks again
