I know of 2 in Japan a Father and son that I am connected to on Twitter, lucky Twitter does a transtation.  I belive the Brown one ended up in America. The Fench are good at monitoring numbers will see if they have posted any further updates.

I recently saw the brown one on sale, I think in France but not sure. Didn’t look very well looked after inside. I was unsure when I first saw pictures of it, strange colour indeed.

I do like all the grey variants there are. Front of the car has always had a bit of an alien look to me so ‘grey’ suits it very well!

the factory grey is a pale grey so I think this is either a wrap or respray.

Think I might be following one or both of them on Instagram? I think there's a small little community of Wind owners in Japan, resulting in some lovely and spectacular photos of their cars in some wonderful places. I love Japanese car culture and am obsessed with Kei cars like the Beat and S660, as well as larger sports cars that Japan has produced. It's exciting to see that a car I own is considered desirable and unique in a country that makes cars I can only dream of owning. Nice to know there are a few around the world that appreciate the Wind instead of making silly jokes.

There's also a new instagram profile appeared this month, someone has recently purchased a black Wind on the Isle of Wight and is documenting a couple of little modifications they are making (debadging, some interior respraying so far)

that's the link for the IoW Wind,

https://instagram.com/k_matsuki?igshid=rk6x8ftgqfo6 and here's the Japanese gentleman I follow who has a Wind (theres other photos too, he's an excellent photographer who's subjects range from landscapes to his cats, family and agriculture.)

Also forgot to mention that in a road local to me, there's two Winds! A black one that belongs to someone who appears to also have at least a Jag, a Porsche 928 (or 944, I can never tell the difference) and two doors down from them is a blue one. So once I finally get mine back, there'll be at least three within a square mile radius

Thanks for posting the links. Nice to see what he’s done. I do think all black on a convertible that evidently has character and flare based on its shape alone is wrong but each to their own. Very nice either way.
