“Minute And Intelligible Guide Of Somewhat Old Automobiles” is a manga collaboration between Katsuya Terada and writer Dave Shigihara. The title is an apt synopsis of the manga’s content, illustrated in Terada’s distinctive style of art work, but with a whimsical touch.
Apparently the first print of this manga (released in a bigger A4 sized back in 1994) is Terada’s first ever published work. Can anyone verify this ?
(above left) While they’re probably of limited interest only to automobile fans, the intricate and superbly detailed drawings of engine parts and such is still an enjoyment to look at.

A manga packed with Terada goodness, whether you’re a fan of automobiles or not. Recommended.
