2021年の8月始め、丁度アタシの79歳の誕生日の8月21日の直前、英国ウェールズ地方に住む女の子から一通の Eメールが、ロンドンに住んでいるムスメのとこへ届きました。その彼女が言うには「父親は中古車の販売をしているのだけど、最近ポルシェ 911 を1台仕入れました。このクルマ、もしかして Tetsu Ikuzawa のクルマではありませんか」との問い合わせです。

My daughter Mai recived an email from a girl who lives in Wales、UK beginning of August 2021 just before the my 79th Birthday of 21st of August.
She says;Regent Park, London, UK in 2008.

London, UK in 2008 with the private plate T3TSU that my daughter gave me for my birthday one year!  So sweet!!

これが、その父と娘です。このクルマは12年前、50年間も住んだロンドンを引き上げて老後は日本でと決めたので、帰国前に売りました。8月21日はアタシの79歳の誕生日! もう、これは運命です! 誕生日のプレゼントとして、見もしないで即決で購入です! それにしても、このインターネット時代ならではの出来事です。この娘さんが、最初のオーナーが Tetsu Ikuzawa だと気が付いて、世界中を検索してロンドンのアタシのムスメのとこへ辿り着いて、アタシへと繋がらなければ起こらなかったハナシです。正にインターネット時代に感謝。ちなみにボンネットに広げてある旗、何だか分かる人は英国人。

Monmouthshire, Wales、UK in 2021.
Thy contacted to Mai beginning of August 2021 after I sold this car 12 years ago.
And I bought it back from them just before my 79th Birthday of 21st August!
Thanks to them that they tried to track the original owner Tetsu Ikuzawa and authenticate it. They found me!  Thanks to the internet age also.
Very nice present for the my 79th Birthday!
This is must be the another FATE.



The car just arrived at Narita Tokyo Airport on Friday 24th September 2021 from London.


 This is the custom clearance document for the car. See the date.

そして、このクルマが日本に到着した明くる日の9月25日の真夜中、アタシのポルシェ友達の一人から一通の Eメールが。「これ、生沢さんのクルマでは?」アタシは、もう絶句しました! もう信じられません! どう言うこと!

And I received an email from one of the my Porsche friend in Japan on Saturday 25th September 2021 midnight.
He says “Is this your car?” 
Can you believe this!!!!

Yes it is!  2008 in Monaco.  そうです! このクルマです!

このクルマは12年前、ヨーロッパでの生活をやめて日本に引き上げることになったので、帰国前にモナコで売りました。で、でも、そのモナコで売却したクルマが、な、なぜ、日本の栃木県宇都宮市の中古車屋さんにあるの!!! それもマツダ3、スズキ・ワゴン R、ダイハツ・タント、ホンダ・フィット、トヨタ・プリウス、カワサキのバイクと一緒に並べて売られているではありませんか!!! どう言うこと!!!

I sold this car 12 years ago in Monaco. 
Why is this car located at the used car shop in the country side of Japan with MAZDA 3, SUZUKI SWIFT, TOYOTA PRIUS, HONDA CIVIC and KAWASAKI Motorcycles!!!!

Monaco September 2008.  モナコで乗っていた、このクルマが・・・

Japan September 2021. Why is this car located at the used car shop in the country side of Japan!!!   な、なぜ、日本の栃木県宇都宮市の、ここにあるの!!! 

一体何が起こっているのでしょうか! もう信じられません! これは、もう奇跡としか言いようがありません! アタシは、ただ、ただ、呆然としていました! 今でも、こんな事が起こったことが信じられません。


勿論、買うしかないですよね! 見もしないで即決で購入です!

What is going on!
How can I believe this!
This is must be the miracle!
Still I can not believe this!

And obviously I bought it!

CRAZY STORY!!!!  Crazy coincidence continues…!!

Just a day after I’m reunited with my Porsche from London and arrived in Tokyo, another miracle happens near Fuji Speedway in 2021 after 13 years again!

13年後、ロンドンからの 911 が東京に到着した次の日、後ろに見えるモナコからの 911 と2台の 911 に、御殿場ワークショップで奇跡の再会をします。

The last time my 2 cars were together at Porsche AG., Porscheplatz 1, Stuttgart, Germany in 2008 before I sold them.

この2台の 911 が揃ったのは、売却前の2008年、ポルシェ本社で以来です。凄いハナシでしょ!

At the my atelier, Tokyo, Japan in 2021.

A stunning limited edition book not available for sale.
I received it accompanied by a letter from Porsche HQ.
Tetsu Ikuzawa is the only Asian in the book!In fact Ralph Lauren was planned for this section, however, at last minute the Porsche executives thought this was a bit boring, so they decided to cover my story instead. The Porsche representatives went all the way to NYC to apologise to Ralph and soon after the Marketing representative and other project leaders from Porsche HQ came to visit me in Japan to explain the situation. In today’s email communication era, I was flattered that they visited me face-to-face.

’Tetsu Ikuzawa’ has a special feature in the issue no. 015 of ‘000’, a very high-end Porsche specialist magazine from the US.‘000’ featured my full and comprehensive Porsche story and covers over 70 pages! There are hundreds of Porsche magazines but even Dr Porsche probably never had such an extended story ever in a magazine!
