Can any of your readers recognise the make of this car? My late father photographed it about 35 years ago somewhere in Japan.
He took a Bullnose Morris 2-seater and dickey out there in 1925, and I have a multitude of childhood memories of him pouring torrents of Japanese oaths at obstinate peasants who refused to remove their bullock carts from the centre of the road.
My father later had a Willys Overland Whippet saloon, but by then he could afford a chauffeur.
Some of my richest and most exciting early memories centre around Nishibiyashi our driver as he fought our way past those carts, two wheels in the ditch, one hand steering, the other brandished out of the window while a two-way stream of abuse flowed between the two vehicles. One of the principal words, baka, was always screeched repetitively and endlessly, and was not unlike some sort of verbal machine gunfire.
