“Because of the popularity of movies, in most of Southeast Asia, including Vietnam, and Dubai, Japanese vintage cars have gained attention. But on the other hand, when the engine sometimes develops problems and requires repairs, it sometimes become difficult to easily repair the engine in the country. Because these cars are older, Japanese car enthusiasts are also confronted with the same problem: getting parts. No matter which country they live in, we want them to enjoy driving vintage cars.
Since we all in the same Asia zone, I think we can contribute to everyone in Asia with a little bit of something different so that people in Asia can enjoy taking care of vintage cars,” said Atsushi Miyata, CEO, Vintage Co. Ltd.
