  • Description

    IT IS THE EIGHT JAPAN AUTOMOBILE SHOW IN TOKYO HELD UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE JAPAN AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION.

    A MILLION VISITORS ARE EXPECTED THIS YEAR FOR THE SHOW.

    NEARLY 300 NEW MODELS OF THE CURRENT PRODUCTION ARE ON EXHIBITION.

    STRESS IS ON SMALL CARS. IMPORTED SMALL CARS COST TOO MUCH IN JAPAN BECAUSE OF 100 PER-CENT DUTY. A MORRIS MINOR COSTS AROUND GBP1,100. SOME OF THE FOUR CYLINDER SMALL CARS HOWEVER FEATURE PUSH BUTTON GEARLESS FORWARD AND REVERSE MOVEMENTS.

    SPORTS CARS ARE ALSO BECOMING VERY POPULAR IN JAPAN AND MANY VERSIONS ARE ON VIEW.

    PRINCE DE LUXE IS OF THE TOP CLASS VARIETY, DESIGNED BY AN ITALIAN. MEDIUM SIZED CARS WITH 6 CYLINDERS WERE MANY.

    THE MOTTO OF THE INDUSTRY HOWEVER IS TO MAKE SMALL, CHEAP AND DEPENDABLE CARS.

    IN THE SPECIALIST CIRCLES IT IS FELT THERE IS STILL MUCH ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT IN JAPANESE CARS IN QUALITY AND DESIGN IN ORDER TO COMPETE WITH EUROPEAN VERSIONS.
