I’m not going to try to translate Country Squire into Japanese. Anyway, unlike the Germans, the Japanese sent plenty of woody wagons this way (see the top of our masthead). I wonder if the woodies sold in Japan too? Anyway, those used Di-Noc too; or the Japanese imitation of it. But here we have the real thing: genuine wood gracing this vintage Corolla.
I recognize that wainscot paneling, and they salvaged some old stained trim. Looks like it’s pretty fresh still too. Stephanie got quite excited upon seeing this; she wants it on her Subaru; what’s a Forester without some real wood?
I tried to have her imagine what this is going to look like after a wet winter or two here; as it is, this one is already showing some “issues”. But it sure makes this Corolla stand out on the street.
