This is the second Delica I have spotted in the United States. Unlike the first one I saw, this one is registered in British Columbia, where there are a lot less red tape headaches when it comes to registering a RHD JDM Delica.
I spotted this in the outskirts of Portland, Oregon, and knew from afar that this was no ordinary minivan.
I got closer and noticed a lot of writing over the rear fender. But I was not able to read the entire tome.
Fortunately, the van eventually stopped at the same rest stop as I did. The friendly and alternatively lifestyle-leading owner told me that this turbo diesel runs on veggie oil. The occupants are headed down to Berkeley to see Phish in concert. Right on!
I was able to get a shot of the Engrish description at the rest stop parking lot. I am reading Roads to Sata, which is about an Englishman who walked the entire length of Japan in the mid-1980s and the book is full of these Engrish-isms.
