Histo ya word.
The bulk of the early 80s matatus were the Nissan E25 model... this has since been replaced by the faster and more stable Toyota Shark or Toyota Hiace models. The word is now almost exculsively reserved for the long distance Shuttles though they are almost invariably all Toyota models.
