This one, for the Japanese-market ’82 Tredia, features “Mr. Tredia.” Where Mr. Tredia goes, that’s where happiness grows; it’s sort of like the Edison Lighthouse song, only with abducted children and geese laying eggs in Mr. Tredia’s car. What does it all mean? It means I need to start shopping for a clean Tredia, of course!
