Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Went to a little car show at Leeds Castle yesterday with the RX-4 and had a nice supprise.

We met a Japanese older lady who was a "car girl"!

She was super excited to see a Luce, as she had only ever seen a few coupes in Japan when they were new, she even knew her Cappellas, from her Savvanas  :).

She went on to tell us that the reason the Luce (RX-4)  was rare in Japan was because they were expensive against other brands, BUT, she went on to tell me that where she lived in Osaka, because the Luce was fast the Police bought them so they could keep up while chasing the Japanese Mafia!

She showed me a great picture on her phone of a Police "Panda car" which I thought was ironic as we used to call our Police cars "Panda cars"

I cant find the picture she showed me, but she also said they made models of the Luce Police and I found one of those. Still into cars and she found a red Luce on her phone for sale in Japan, 11000 GBP needing a full resoration.

You just never know who you may meet at a car show and this was so odd I thought I would share  :great:
