Too lazy to work on lengthy stories atm, so I’ll just dump pics instead.
1973 Kasai Riku no Kujira (Land Whale), a limited-production 4-door muscle car made to test new markets.
Notice the alternate badge because this car was also meant as a ironic commentary to the 1970s oil crisis.
Predictably, it didn’t sell well due to it not being “muscley” or “crazy” enough.
(what are reverse lights?)
