You had your gloriously ridiculous Japanese-macho lines, bright red interior, and TURBO emblems everywhere you looked.

So when I walked into this Cordia, I just had to stop, shoot and write. I haven’t seen one since moving to Oregon, but there might well be some logical rationale behind that: the Cordia was […]
