KUALA LUMPUR, Sept. 23 – A Japanese man who sold his 1989 Toyota Supra to treat his ailing cat was pleasantly surprised when the new owner returned the car to the man to celebrate the cat’s recovery.

SoraNews24 reported that the Osaka man who worked on Yahoo! The Japanese auction house had put its 32-year-old classic car up for sale for 2.7 million yen (102,990 RM).

Leiz had initially thought it would be difficult to find a buyer, but surprisingly, an avid car collector and animal lover agreed to purchase the vehicle after reading that Leiz needed the money to treat his cat, which was suffering from infectious cat pelt. a viral disease, suffered from a feline coronavirus.

The buyer “Masakoba” has agreed with Leiz that he would build a garage for the Supra on his property and sell it back to Leiz at the same price in the future.

In essence, the sale had turned into a 2.7 million yen loan to a complete stranger.

Leiz’s cat named Silk has finished her treatment and is now healthy.

When Leiz started raising money to buy his car back, Masakoba showed up at his (Leiz) home with the renovated Toyota Supra last month.

Masakoba had done an extensive restoration of the vehicle in the past few months.

After keeping in touch with Leiz since the sale and learning that Silk was cured, Masakoba drove the renovated Supra to Leiz’s house and returned it to Leiz to celebrate the cat’s impeccable health.

Masakoba originally intended to return the car to Leiz before Silk’s treatments were completed, but the restoration wasn’t done until this month.
