Just wanted to let you know I picked up my Alto Works yesterday. I drew a crowd picking it up. I had people offering me $$ for the vehicle before I ever got in it! Went to get Gas and had to tell multiple people what it is. I did not expect such a reaction but I understand, this thing is tiny compared to American cars.

I had no issues driving it up the mountain. I am beyond surprised how quick it actually is. I had lowered my expectation as I have a few performance cars but this little thing ran away from the SUV I took down to pick it up.

Happy to report that the wife’s reaction was not what I expected. Instantly fell in love with it.

When I am ready to purchase another vehicle, should I just let you know and put down the deposit via PayPal again?

I appreciate your patience while I figured this all out. I really have nothing to complain about! Cheers!

Wanna give a huge shout out to Mathew Matusiak at Japan Car Direct LLC He’s making my dream come true and for putting up with me lol can’t wait to buy more cars!


Good morning, Scott and Mat,

I finally have the car in my possession! After a few failures with transport companies, I went down to the port and picked it up myself. The car was worth the wait and every penny; it’s a bit of an ugly duckling at the moment, but it will be as close to showroom condition as it can be once I am done with it. With that said, there were no surprises; thanks to you guys, I knew exactly what to expect, and I got exactly what I expected. It’s a 25-year old car, after all, and I had far more issues myself when I was 25. It is in great mechanical condition, though needs a good detailing and a polishing job, which I was well aware of and am happy to do. As promised, I will send some pictures your way once the car looks like it should.

I can’t thank you guys enough for being there every step of the way, answering all questions, and for being so prompt and on it since the day I signed up with JCD. I couldn’t be happier with the entire process and with the end result in particular. I love it!

Before long, we will do it all over again. I know I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating–it has been nothing but a pleasure doing business with you, and I will be sending you more links soon. You guys rock.

Thank you!


Hey Matt,

We’re happy to say that the import process was a success! We were miraculously able to drive 4.5 hours to Savannah, pick up the car, and drive back in one day.

Quinn and I just wanted to thank you and Scott for all your help over the last several months. Thanks for answering all our questions, even the stupid ones, it helped us feel confident, which is very important when buying a car based on a few blurry pictures from the other side of the world. The next car we import will definitely be through you guys.

Thanks for everything,

R.K. – US customer

Dear Scott & Matt,

This was a great buy indeed, and I can’t wait to get the car stateside. I will get on the funds transfer and will update you once it’s done.

Thank you once again for all the help leading up to my first purchase and for sending over the invoice with detailed instructions so promptly. Saying that it’s been a pleasure dealing with you guys would be an understatement.


Dear Scott,

I hope you and your family and in great health and in great spirits. Mat just helped me secure my 10th vehicle purchase from you. It is a beautiful Nissan Figaro that I could not have gotten without him. After buying 10 cars (and hopefully many more), I want you to know that Japan Car Direct is not just a buyer to me. Japan Car Direct is an invested partner in my success. This is in large part to Mat’s help, expertise, and excellent disposition. He has earned my confidence, trust, respect, and loyalty. He cares about the quality of cars I obtain.

For this Figaro and the last Delica that I won, he went above and beyond to make sure I got the vehicle I wanted. That means he went slightly above my highest bid, but he avoided me losing a great vehicle for a measly $50 US dollars. In the case of the Figaro, my max bid was $8,000 and he got it for me for $8,020. You have no idea how disappointed I would have been if I lost out on that vehicle for a measly $20 dollars. Now, I will have a beautiful Nissan Figaro to sell just in time for summer.

I look forward to buying more vehicles from you and Mat and hope to make my side business more prosperous and exciting with cars like Figaros, Paos, Mark IIs, MR2s, and maybe an AutoZam AZ-1. The Pacific Northwest stills loves 4wd diesel vans and campers, so I hope to buy more of those too. Perhaps by this time next year, I will have enough cash to purchase NSXs, Skylines, and Supras.
