  • Japanese used vehicle exporting


    A Japanese-market Honda Stepwgn in the Philippines. The model has never seen an official release in the country, and has to be converted to left-hand drive for it to be driven legally.Japanese used vehicle exporting is a grey market international trade involving the export of used cars and other vehicles from Japan to other markets around the world since the 1980s. Despite the high cost of transport, the sale of used cars and other vehicles to other countries is still profitable due to the relatively low cost and good condition of the vehicles being purchased. Contributing factors to the feasibility of such export include Japan's strict motor-vehicle inspections and high depreciation which make such vehicles worth very little in Japan after six years, and strict environmental-protection regulations that make vehicle disposal very expensive in Japan. Japan has very stringent vehicle emission test standards. Nearly 1.4 million used vehicles were exported from Japan in 2006.

  • Autoduel


    Autoduel is a 1985 role-playing video game published by Origin Systems for the Atari 8-bit family, Commodore 64, Apple II, Macintosh, and MS-DOS. It was released in 1987 for the Atari ST and in 1988 for the Amiga. The game is based on the Steve Jackson Games series Car Wars. The game is set in a hypothetical future in the U.S., where cars are a primary means of protection and defense, and the highways are dangerous stretches of land ruled by gangs and vigilantes with armed vehicles.Autoduel is no longer available for commercial sale. However, because it is part of Electronic Arts' ("EA") intellectual property portfolio, EA issues takedown notices to any abandonware site found to be hosting it. Apparently, recently, the original author obtained reverted rights from EA for this title, and is looking to bring it to current techology, in "classic" form.
