oops, i did it again...

oh, not pinto. but i did 70's again. i was looking for AMC cars, earlier model pinto, and i even thought about british (MG) and italian (FIAT) but i finally chose this one for my next car. drumroll please...

次は絶対にAMCの車!と張り切って探しておりましたが、コレだ!というものにめぐり合えず、突然ヨーロピアン気分になってMGだ、FIATだ、とガラにも無く気取り路線へはしったり、やっぱりpintoだよなぁと戻ってみたり。乙女心と秋の空。しかし、ついに見つけました。一番大好きで落ちつく70年代物。


1975 plymouth duster!! 225 slant 6.

1975 プリマス・ダスターでございます。225の直6。

shinya took me to escondido with his datsun
and i drove this duster back to azusa.
distance of approx 80 miles on freeway 
without any troubles. 
say goodbye to funny noises.
oh, and 160 miles of a round trip with no trouble,
datsun, you rule!

木村さんにダッツンでサンディエゴの近くまで乗せて行ってもらい、
帰りはわたくしはこちらのダスターで帰って参りました。
その距離フリーウェイで80マイル、問題なし。新車のような静けさ。
往復160マイル問題なくがんばったダッツンもすごい!

although it's my new car, shinya looks very happy
because...he highly recommended this one 
when i was mulling over so many choices.
that means...he wanted this one.
it's all right. i really like my new car.
very 70's huge front with slender rear.
that's my kind of car.

私の車ですのに、なぜかとても嬉しそうな木村氏。
色々迷っている中、これが木村氏の一押しだった・・・ってことは、
自分が欲しい車を選んだんじゃなかろうか?
いえいえ、わたくしもとても気に入っております。大満足です。
この完璧に70年代をかもし出しているドデカなお顔と、
それに全く比例していないシュッとした後姿。
まさにわたくし向きのへんてこな車です。大切にします。

i removed this decal out of my pinto
and put it on my duster!!

ピントに貼ってあったchico motoステッカーを
ダスターに貼りなおした図。

i thank all people who gave us those valuable info. sorry for all the fuss. finally the search is over...for now. yay!

貴重な情報をくださった皆さま、ありがとうございました。お騒がせいたしましたが、車探しは一旦終わります。あー楽しかった!

nice car - many work ;-) good luck. Don´t buy a Fiat!! In Germany we say "FIAT: Fehler In Allen Teilen" i try to translate: "Error in all its particulars".

Greetings from Germany, Hangover. I think shinya know Hannover ;-)

Nice sneakin in right under the '76 smog requirement.
I think shinya can make a bitchin intake like one of these...

Congratulations Ayu on your new ride! Hot beige is an undercover color.
The 225 slant six is tougher than a 2 dollar steak. I predict many miles of happy motoring.
