Let’s check some popular classic cars & young timers here.
The Japanese public has long been avid consumers of cars and not just Japanese cars. We have to go back to the bubble period in Japan when the country was awash with money and every 3rd person was some sort of high roller.
The Japanese like most Asians love wealth and to some extent love to show it off. No, they will not have gold chains dangling around their necks and throw money away frivolously, but they will buy a 2nd home and a 2nd or 3rd car.
So with this in mind in the 1980s and into the early ’90s etc these wealthy Japanese went out on a buying frenzy and snapped all sorts of great cars from the best automotive manufacturers in Europe and the USA and more.
