Purposeful, affordable, durable, and preferably vintage. Being of Japanese origin just makes it quirkier and generally more reliable. Those are the primary attributes I admire in vintage trucks. This sidewalk-parked Mitsubishi Pajero checks all but the vintage box. Unless you consider a ≈12 year-old SUV to be "vintage". I don't.
The US saw these as the Montero, albeit only in four-door guise - and not at all with the Evolution option package.
I believe that these came stock with the wide alloy wheels, but if it was mine, it'd be wearing skinnier steelies.
Still a pretty cool street find for normally-boring (auto-related anyway) Taichung.
