Grocery Store Lot Spot: 1994 Subaru Sambar Dias Extra-S in Eugene, OR
Kei vans are starting to make themselves known in the 33rd State.
While #JDM kei vans have been popular for a while in other states, they are taking a while to catch on in Oregon, due to legislation that doesn't guarantee these oddities registration, even if over 25 years old. This daily-driven '94 #Subaru Sambar Dias "Extra-S" has 2017 issue Oregon license plates, and it is a refreshing sight in a city where the Hiace and Delica are starting to become routine sightings.
At 660cc and around 10 feet long, with a 3-cylinder gas engine, this is a good deal smaller than a VW van or a Hiace, and it is optimistically a 4-seater given typical American body types.
