Among the American cars, I was particularly interested in pick-up trucks. “It all started when the ‘trophy truck’ that appeared in the desert race was really cool.”
The Desert Race is, as the name suggests, a race held in the desert. Mr. Nomura was fascinated by "trophy trucks," pickup trucks modified for competitions such as the "Baja Race" in California and the "Mint 400" in Las Vegas.
