1990 Citroën 2CV6 Spécial

The owner says this 2CV was built only a few months before production ceased altogether.

I particularly enjoy the strange window behind the C pillar.

1990 Nissan Pao

Not the first Pao here but this one has more character. It's the chipped paint, missing hubcaps, and loose right headlight. Owner was very enthusiastic, telling me about and working on the car as I took photos.

1990 Mazda Bongo truck

What's great about these little Japanese trucks is their absolute minimalism. Small cab on the front, drive train and load bed behind. No ornamentation, little in the way of styling. Fold the sides of the load bed down and you have a flatbed. A hard working truck perfect for it's hard working operator.

1990 Toyota HiAce Super Custom

JDM vans are somewhat common in Vancouver, however I've only seen few of these Toyotas.

Love the sloping, aerodynamic shape of the front door windows, and the interesting shut lines. Plus the extended step in front of the front wheel, and all those seemingly random sunroofs. And what is that mysterious air intake just behind the driver's door?

1990 Jeep Cherokee 2dr (XJ)

This one is for Mark, the owner, who was so pleased by my interest in his truck.

I believe the two door Cherokee is less common, there being somewhat of a craze for four door SUVs at the time. Regardless, Jeeps of this era are interesting in that they echo the long history of conservative, 'military' looking vehicles while embracing a new style and better technology. So -- no super aerodynamic shape, but smaller and more practical than previous models. Love the oversized wheels/tires, squared off shapes of all lights, windows, grill, even fenders are mostly straight lines.

1990 Nissan S-Cargo

I've been wanting to post an S-Cargo for a while now. There are several around town. Like the Toyota Sera and the Nissan Figaro (which I will get, sooner or later) this was purely meant for Japan, and for whatever odd niche they fit there.

First I love the sheer crazy audacity of creating a van like this -- the vast glass area, the toy like circular shapes, the impractical windows. Next, repeating the shape in the details -- the mirrors, speedometer & dash, taillights, heck even the wheelwells. Once again, it would never happen in North America.
