67-year model Publica 800 Deluxe
What I needed at work was covered transportation
The Subaru 360 light car was good enough
Obtained a small passenger car that was rare even at that time
I got a new license again
After all, the last thing left was Publica
石 Mr. Ishiyama who keeps riding Publica by one owner.
Until then, he wasn't very interested in cars, but he decided to buy a publica, re-obtain a driver's license that allowed him to drive ordinary cars from a license for exclusive use of mini cars, and changed his consciousness about cars.
Also, switch from a mini car to a small car, and realize the comfort of riding.
Thanks to this, Publica has been very active on family trips and outings on cars have increased.
He said he had visited his hometown Fukushima dozens of times, and had traveled to Kochi, where his relatives were, by far the most remote.
の I didn't care until then, but I really liked riding a car.
機械 A car called a car that I became interested in after getting Publica. Were you worried about the maintenance?
"I didn't do anything special about this. I just managed the oil properly, changed the oil frequently, and if I needed to grease it, I dealt with it as soon as possible. But without any major trouble, I am still working today. ''
Now, I use Publica for work, and I ride it on rainy days, but it seems that I valued it very much at the time of purchase.
家族 Some family members say they don't ride on rainy days, roll up asphalt on a freshly made road, check back below and touch up after returning.
After that, owned a publica in conjunction with new cars such as Chaser, Mark II and Passat.
But all new cars had their missions broken and did not last long. In the end, what remained was Publica, who continued to ride as a one-owner vehicle.
