One of the best things about car musuems in Japan, other than the fact that they’re museums, situated in Japan, and chock full of classic Japanese cars, is that they aren’t afraid to showcase vehicles made by their competitors.
Case in point: in 2003 the Honda Collection Hall had a special exhibit devoted to the early post-war vehicles that put the nation on wheels. Smack dab in the middle of the gallery were a pair of – gasp – Toyotas, a gray Publica followed by a silver Sports 800 to be precise. Other non-Honda (Nonda?) marques at the exhibit included Subaru, Mazda, Suzuki, and Yamaha. Respeck!
