New disability vehicles section released

Autospecs our parent company also operates japanesenewcars.com and has recently released an updated version of the web site and in doing so have added a section dedicated to new disability vehicles. This section covers all new and current disability vehicle models currently produced in Japan by the major manufacturers such as Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Mazda etc and has detailed pictures and descriptions for those who are disabled, aged or mobility impaired or those who care for them they can see and understand the great concepts and designs available.

The disability vehicles being produced these days have evolved some what from a few years ago and come in numerous models and configurations such as self drive with hand controls, swivel front seat loaders, wheel chair lifts, wheel chair access ramps and detachable seats that double as actual wheel chairs. All these vehicles are also available in used condition.

With the ageing population in Japan (20% of the population in Japan is now 65 or older) the choices for disabled people wanting mobility have never been better.

2009 New Zealand 4 and Rotary Nationals

Last weekend in Auckland, New Zealand the annual 4 and Rotary Nationals were held with the show and shine at the Asb Showgrounds on Saturday and the Drags the next day at Meremere Dragway (45mins south of Auckland) Our car was entered into the show n shine on a trade stand for wheelsandheels.co.nz to bolster numbers as its a new site started. The stand ended up walking away with Best Club Display for 2009. If anyone is interested Speedhunters.com covered the event here a few pics of the R34 at the show and a few pics at one of my favourite photo locations. You'll notice its been de-spoilered the standard spoiler looked to small and made the car look like a box, we've had nothing but positive feed back since losing the spoiler. A really huge thanks must go out to the following people;

Japaneseusedcars.com R34 Skyline Promo Car

We have had this as our promo car for quite awhile and have finally got some pictures to post here. The Skyline started life as a very standard R34 and we have since fitted adjustable suspension, alloys and a Uras look body kit, it has a basic 2000cc neo 6 engine but will be getting developed with a RB26 engine at a later date. The car is based in New Zealand and attends events and shows promoting Japaneseusedcars.com. We were given a great deal on ocean freight through our good friends at Kiwi Car Carriers to ship the car to NZ and McCathies Customs agents assisted us with clearing the car through NZ customs and arranged compliance so it owes us very little as we were able to buy the car for an extremely good price through the auctions here in Japan.
