Hmm different. Nice work eddie.

I know there is a article on the honda city turbo, in the Austrialian "Wheels" magazine it was the 1982 edition  Janurary edition (I Hope I remembered that right). Being tyring to find a copy not having much luck.

Had to watch it a couple of times before i got it.
their saying "It will catch your eye in the city"  
As 6 guys walk really wierdly together in the city, do those 6 guys not catch your eye as they walk through the city?,
"like the Honda city would in the city" Corny but it works.

...you want to go through babel fish but Japanese vers. is easy to navigate for media.
Go to Media, then TVprogram, number 10 and 11, are the robo bull dog and other i mentioned... or try this if you cant trace it.

I would love to see that racing footage.

Ive just downloaded all those tv commercials,  make it easier for people to view them.

If you want a copy of the videos, copy the link into a download program like Getright or your Browsers one if it lets you.

Clicking on the link will run the video.

Max size is 465kb most are around 200kb ( will need quicktime to play them)
