NOTE: If ANYONE has info concerning the first two Toypets that came to the US, or any information concerning the first dealers in San Francisco and Los Angeles...please contact me....or if you know how I can get history on a specific Toyopet we just purchased (I have negine number, frame number, etc....)
I am in desperate need of your help. Your post is a gold mine online to me. I am trying to research and possibly come to San Francisco and photograph, video, interview whatever and whomever I can in connection with a 1958 Toyopet that we just purchased. It was given to the Consulate-General of Japan in San Francisco. We know that for sure from the Title and California registration forms that we have.....
I have contacted the Consulate-General of Japan in San Francisco\'s office and hopefully they will find something, articles, etc....
We think the car we have is one of the first Toyopets. We really hope it is one of the first TWO Toyopets in the US as seen in this photo: http://www.toyota50th.com/Photo1.asp
....can you contact me? I have many questions and I think you may be able to help.
We\'d love to come to San Francisco and photo/video the first dealer location - if the building is still there...etc....and possibly interview you for this documented trip of this car.
thanks for anything you can tell me.
