TOKYO -- It is typical to find out senior automobile executives wandering via an auto-show, looking at your competitors. The different manners they do it offer penetration to their fashions.
Some, like VW's Ferdinand Piech, can not journey without a big entourage. Others will wander alone, if their staffers permit.
At the Tokyo Motor Show, I turned about to see Osamu Suzuki, the octogenarian chairman of Suzuki Motor, rock climbing from a Mitsubishi car.
Then he moved to admire the Jaguars on-display.
But when he stumbled on the Subaru screen, he held his space. The bushy-browed manager reviewed the automobiles in the hall's thoroughfare, perhaps not stepping onto the Subaru exhibit space.
Maybe he considers Subaru to be more of a competitor than Mitsubishi.
