Right hand drive, 4wd, diesel and all.

In our Nation's capital none the less! (Well the current one not where it will be moved to at Noon on Friday)

It looks like you're sitting directly on top of the front wheels. What's that like?

Lots of fun around town with the guys in the Jeeps going "WTF???"

I hadn't heard the Capitol (capital?) was moving.

Where will it be moved to?

The Capital is the city, the Capitol is the building.

Confuzzling, isn't it?

It is a guy in my unit at work. It does have the glass panels in the roof.

I have t say it was awesome. Much envy and want right now

There are at least two and maybe three of those in my neighborhood. I see them, and I have jealousy. That's just how it seems to work.

I saw one of those parked at a shop that seems to specialize in off beat imports in Bucks county PA over the summer. Maybe they are the next big JDM thing?

I just learned something. I always thought that Ironhide was a Toyota Hi-Ace.

It was sunny weather yesterday in DC. The photo was a stock one. I was so excited to drive the thing I forgot to get a photo so I just found one online.

For a 25 year old diesel mini-van it drove quite well.

The paint scheme is blah. Very 90's Japan. I keep bugging the owner to paint it with a Mitsubishi RalliArt scheme
