Tsukasa Matsumoto from Global Exports was kind enough to show me around their new warehouse today. Global Export (the export division of Global Auto) is now it’s own entity with the new warehouse facilities and separate office.
The Garage is yet to have signage put up, I actually drove past it twice before realizing it was the place!
The “office garage” with hoist for dismantling/reinstalling engines etc.
Some of the spare parts collected to use on future cars if needed.
A lone S13 Onevia.
A BCNR33 GT-R parts car. It’s accident damaged so all valuable parts will be eventually stripped and installed on other cars.
Spare gearbox from the R33 GT-R parts car. (the engine from this car can be seen on the bottom shelf in the parts photo above.
A brand new R35 Nissan GT-R in stock. It had only 46kms on the odometer and plastic on the seats and interior.
Over at the main holding garage again.
Full Stage Honda Civic Type R as seen at Round 2 of the Exedy 4 Hour Endurance race. Global Export have dealings with Full Stage and keep some of there cars here.
A dusty but tough JZA80 Supra.
Global Exports will continue to deal mainly with GT-Rs (R32, R33, R34) but essentially will sell any performance car to anyone.
A nice FD3S RX-7 out the front… probably the cleanest car there!
That’s all for this installment but I’ll have plenty more from Global Autos/Exports in the near future, Tsukasa has asked me to do a “Car of the Month” feature article on selected cars in order to give everyone a good close look at the cars with detailed specifications. They’ll be washed beforehand too!
