Tojo’s life after the war was one of glamour and stardom. He was featured in multiple feature films and starred in Hell is for Heroes with Steve Mcqueen. Later in his career he was shot down and set on fire, ruining his movie star good looks. He was forgotten until 1989 when Tom Sparks brought him from a junkyard where he had big plans for Tojo. However as time passed nothing was done for poor ol’ Tojo. In spring of 2013 I, Sebastian Hernandez purchased Tojo from my friend Tom and planned to finish what he started. Tojo underwent major surgery. In a matter of months I had Tojo up and running. He still has to have some minor touch ups but you can still see the proud movie car that he once was in these restoration pictures.
