I am always trying to think of a plan to start a new car company. I need low start up costs and a good market.
1. Start making replica sedans and power them with LS e-rod engines.
2. Make replica neighborhood electric vehicles (NEV) that are replicas of classic kei and micro cars.
3. Replica mini trucks because their are no small cars for sale in the U.S. and the chicken tax would help protect my market.
4. Starting with motorcycles like Honda did. I will start using someone elses engines like Janus does, but something atleast 500cc.
A lot of this relies on that replica law that the government will probably never finish, so it will probably be motorcycles.
