Okinawan Tow Truck

Okinawa Prefecture (沖縄県, Okinawa-ken, Okinawan: Uchinā) is Japan’s southernmost prefecture, and consists of hundreds of the Ryukyu Islands in a chain over 1,000 km long, which extends southwest from Kyūshū (the southwesternmost of Japan’s main four islands) to Taiwan. Okinawa’s capital, Naha, is located in the southern part of the largest and most populous island, Okinawa Island, which is approximately half-way between Kyūshū and Taiwan. The disputed Senkaku Islands (Chinese: Diaoyu Islands) are also administered as part of Okinawa Prefecture.

A tow truck (also called a wrecker, a breakdown truck or a breakdown lorry), is a vehicle used to take disabled motor vehicles to another location (generally a repair garage) in case of breakdown or collision, or to impound illegally parked vehicles on public or (more commonly) private property.

The Ford Probe was a car produced by Ford, introduced in 1989 to replace the Ford EXP as the company’s sport compact car. It was sold in the European, Australian, and North American markets. A sporty coupe, the Probe was intended to fill the market niche formerly occupied by the Capri in Europe, and although it was intended as the replacement to the Ford EXP, it was also considered a possible replacement for the Ford Mustang in the North American market. Fans objected to the front wheel drive configuration, Japanese engineering, and lack of a V8, so Ford went to work on a new design for the Mustang instead.
