The VW bus is of course the iconic Eugene-mobile. But I’ve been amazed over the years how many of these little Ford Festivas there have been around, and still are. They’re obviously tough little buggers. It’s the prefect car to use as a parts runner for the vintage VW bus.
It’s a Mazda 121, but the US version was built by Kia in Korea. But that’s not the only place they were built, in addition to Japan. China, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Taiwan and Venezuela. A real globe trotter, this little Mazda was.
