  • Description

    THE EIGHTH TOKYO MOTOR SHOW, SPONSORED BY THE JAPANESE MOTOR INDUSTRIAL FEDERATION, OPENED OCT 29. REFLECTING THE INDUSTRY'S GROWTH WERE A WIDE RANGE OF TRUCKS AND CARS - PARTICULARLY THE SPORTS-TYPE CONVERTIBLE. IN THE PAST, CARS IN JAPAN HAVE BEEN RESERVED PRIMARILY FOR BUSINESS FIRMS AND TAXI COMPANIES.

    AS EARNINGS HAVE RISEN, MORE AND MORE JAPANESE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO OWNING THEIR OWN CARS. MANUFACTURERS OFFERED SIX MINI-CARS TO THE TEMPT THEM. SELLING FOR ABOUT GBP350 TO GBP400, THESE "PEOPLE'S CARS" CONTAIN ONLY ESSENTIALS IN THE WAY OF INSTRUMENTATION AND TRIM. AND THEY ARE SCALED TO THE NARROW PATHS THAT PASS FOR ROADS IN MANY PARTS OF THE COUNTRY.

    ALSO ON DISPLAY - ROWS OF LORRIES OF ALMOST EVERY DESCRIPTION. KEEPING PACE WITH THE MODERNISATION OF JAPANESE AGRICULTURE, A NUMBER OF SMALL SLEEK TRACTORS WERE ON SHOW.
