    Been a member for quite some time and somehow missed a good portion of the amazing list you compiled. Hats off. I guess after finals I need to spend some time downloading it and anal-retentively placing it in my 3-ring binder.

    Once again, thanks!

    Download complete.

    Now when can I start pestering you for that VIN CD again? Would LOVE the challenge of decrypting the files.

    Thanks again!!!

It's an article written for a Japanese trade journal in 2007. I've had this for years and did post it here before. I bought a book to try to translate these characters to english, but this type of writing is so complex, there was no chance I could do it. I offered it up to a bunch of professional translation services. Most never responded, the lowest bid was $1500 to get it done. I was only willing to spend a couple hundred dollars at that time. I was thinking of taking it to a Japanese restaurant to see if anyone there could do it for that price. It's still a cool VX collectable to have in any language.

    BTW, the first photo in that "Dreams" article is the VX concept behind a large helicopter in England, where the VX concept was designed and built. I searched using the numbers on the tail of the chopper and found out it spent most of it's life in England and there was even details of when it crashed, which all choppers do eventually.
    Mark - You can use Google Translate to convert this to English, BUT in order to do so you need to be able to copy/paste the Japanese text into the translation box. Unfortunately you can't do that unless you unlock the PDF first, which requires a password. Do you know what that might be, or was it set by Isuzu?

    Actually you don't have to cut and paste, under the text box in Google Translate you will see "Type text or a website address or translate a document.". Click the link for translate a document and just upload the file, no password needed. (although I already made a non-secured version of the original =P)

    The translated version is a bit messed up because the columns overlap, but It's in html. so I can fix that and remake the translated version into a pdf once I'm done!

    Maybe. I did the translation last night after he posted and it seems pretty broken (the English that is, not the translator). A human translation would obviously be best, so maybe one of our younger members (God I feel old saying that) could make a connection with a Japanese language department at their college. Seems like a good extra credit project for somebody.
