Toshiro Mifune and his MG TD

We have added an article received from Hideo Okane, Kenji Matsuoka (Kobe MG Car Club) and Peter Cook (MGCC Overseas Director) about the famous Japanese actor Toshiro Mifune and his love of his TD.

Mifune was the actor who played a ronin (a wandering Samurai with no master); a man with no name who appears out of the blue in trouble spots, and by using his sword disposes of villains, and disappears as mysteriously as when he arrived, which many believe was the model for the Clint Eastwood Western films. He also starred in many western films such as Hell in the Pacific, Midway and Grand Prix.
