How it Works

Honda Acty 770lbs payload capacity (900lbs pictured)

It starts with relationships

Our established relationships with English speaking Japanese auto-exporters ensures we get quality cars with no surprises. We also have great working relationships with multiple part vendors to provide full vehicle support.  

Getting our trucks

Our trucks are all personally selected from Japanese auto auctions by me. I use my experience having bought, owned, maintained, and sold over 50 different automobiles, a dozen or more motorcycles, and almost 20 CARBURETED aircraft to get the best vehicles we can. I search for the best trucks available at auction in Japan and send the auction sheet to my Japanese speaking export team located in Japan, to translate all vehicle information into English. After I review the translated information, pictures, and condition diagram we make a decision to buy or not. If the truck meets our stringent criteria we bid a fair amount on the carefully selected trucks and try to win them at auction. 

Our Standards

I don't need to sell these trucks I do it because they are cool, and people who enjoy them are cool. I don't want to deal with junk cars or junk people. Over 80% of the trucks I see at auction are eliminated for heavy rust, cracked windshields, corrosion, engine smoke, strange noises, or other pitfalls. Any cars that don't meet our standards are not bid on. 

Customs and Paperwork

All paperwork needed to register and title your truck in Texas will be included with your purchase. We comply with current federal and state laws regarding importation and sales of cars. For your safety and protection we have a dealership bond in the state of Texas. TWIC Certified, we are also a registered importer with Customs and Border Protection. All documents needed to register your vehicle will be translated from Japanese to English, have proper stamps, and notarization. Let us handle the hard part. We make it simple to register your new truck to legally drive on Texas roads. 

Parts and Service

After your purchase we can provide parts and service to keep your Honda Acty or Subaru Sambar running in top condition. We usually have common parts like air-filters, spark plugs, tires, wheels, some gaskets, and oil filters in stock. We have completed projects for our customers involving custom wheels and tires, custom upholstery, and exterior wraps.
