Down on the Street: Suzuki Alto SS40

October 18, 2015 in dots

Last week on Friday I picked up my son from school. Since it was such nice warm autumn (or fall) afternoon and he was playing happily with some of the other kids at school I took a short hike in the street of my son’s school. Then I spotted this well used Suzuki Alto SS40:

Actually Wikipedia refers to it as the SS80 and I only read this later after I made this video.

What would be your first thought when you would drive a 1992 Suzuki Alto?

The two girls in this ad go visit some aquarium, look at the octopus and immediately head off to the nearest takoyaki food cart around the corner. Weird!

Commercial Time: Riding hi, Suzuki Alto Works CA72

June 11, 2014 in Commerical time

I had a big WTF while watching this Suzuki Alto Works CA72 ad. In a typically 80s Japanese style the Alto is announced with a big Liding High, Alto Woks:
Commercial Times: Riding Hi, Alto Works CA72
Disclaimer: I’m not trying to mock the Japanese here and we all know they have difficulty with foreign languages like English. The funny part is that the ad is lacking the R and high is spelled hi. Now it feels like someone is saying hi with the Alto Works. 😉

Contact form fixed!

May 27, 2013 in event, Events, jaf2013

Apparently the contact form was broken for a while and I only found out because someone mailed me directly.
Fix has been performed and it works now.

To make it up to you I’d like to post this nice ratlook Alto SS40 I spotted at the Japanse Autosport Festival:
