Around the end of last year, the good ol’ NSP wagon reached the end of its rather long life, after the 10 of its last and best years with me.
Though I loved the ride, the creeping rust attack and the final blow, shattered differential due to oil seal failure forced me to make the decision. I really had a lot of memories with this one, from driving around the country, getting stranded in rain with dead alternator in Nagoya to disaster grinding a railway crossing in Yokosuka.
So, I changed the ride. To something a little more practical. I used to think two driven wheels were enough, but having more is just as fun sometimes.
