Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall…


…who’s da shiniest car of all? As my intrepid spokemodel Adam is demonstrating, this Toyota is whatever color you want it to be, depending on where you park it! You’d just have to decide whether the entertainment value in having a car that reflects your date back as a wiggly funhouse dwarf is worth having to drive in white gloves so you don’t have to keep buffing out the fingerprints.

If you’d like to see the mirror car the next time you’re in Tokyo, it’s at the Toyota MegaWeb showroom out in Odaiba. Directions are on my website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.
