The Toyota Publica car dates from 1965. It was developed according to guidelines set by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry for a 'people's car' that would be affordable for people in Japan. This is the open-top sports version of the Toyota Publica on display at the Toyota Showcase in Odaiba, Tokyo.

I remember when Japanese cars first entered the UK market in the early 70s. They were treated as a joke. Today there is no exclusively British-owned car industry, apart from a couple of small companies catering to niche markets.
