Spot of the day, Japan Edition

Living in Japan means spotting rare, weird, cool automotive stuff from time to time. sometimes I'm fast enough to snap a shot!

A Takeoka Abbey Carrot! Not the first time I see this one around my place, but the first time I see it parked. It has a 50cc 4-stroke engine, but later electric models were also made. Shitty cell phone pics, sorry...

Another one I spotted 2 years ago. I would genuinely love to test drive that thing.

  • Thanks for bringing an interesting car to my attention which I didn't even know existed 5 minutes ago. I have no idea why, but I really, really want one...
