You can read there:

"The realization extends to his personal spending habits. The former owner of Rolls-Royces, Bentleys, and Aston Martins now professes himself bored with expensive luxury cars. These days, Nishi says he is happy with the most advanced consumer models, like the latest Honda. He still buys a new car each season, and admits, "It's fun to see what kind of intelligence the makers put into them."

LOL

If he is fart of his Rolls-Royce he can give it to me ;)

Quote:

"The last straw came when the flamboyant Nishi poured $1 million into a publicity stunt involving a life-size model of a brontosaurus. This was parked outside a major Tokyo railway station to promote MSX, a new PC format jointly developed by the two companies for the Japanese market. "
