Im in Shanghai , China . This place is car crazy, Must of the Cars here are the GM buick , VW jetta, and lots of big cars,BMW, Rollsroyce,Mencedies excause my spelling of these cars , But this is the first time I have every seen 3 Rollsroyces in one city and about 100 different Mencedies, The car here is a very expensive TOY. Chinese people are new to the car and they treat the car as a piece of gold. I never seen people so obsessed with washing the car. Kinda stupid. If you consider an apartment, where must Chinese live, is very dirty and open to the air, very little heat. Im driving at here the cars here lack Emissons Controls , and crash test saftey test shops to fix the car. The AIR here is very bad well above Internation air quality for the world. For the last four years I have come to Shanghai and the AIR is getting very bad here. The number of Cars has increased because of government incentives for the people to buy a car. They lack insurance and safty rules on the road. You see the evolution of the CAR in Shanghai and China is if you own one you are considered a step up in class and FACE. People here do not no the rules of the road ; most do not care, about how they drive , the traffic rules that exist are not followed by most drivers. Drivers ethics do not excist . The pedestrian does not have the right of way the CAR is more important. They will run you over. They do not care.
They speed, run red lights, and drive the wrong way on a one way. Donot know how to park; and will park any where,,sidewalks are parking spots for these people. The car test is on line it is not a driving test to get your license, mutable choice and the test does not ask you about driivng the car. 3 years ago there whereover 100 people killed in traffic car related accidents in Shanghai for one month. So you now see what kind of driver you have here. You can buy a Black Market license here. The police do not enforce the traffic runs , not enough police. Accidents do not get reported unless there is a death. It is sort of Backwards..here for the car. But this has not stopped people from buying the most expensive car they can get. BAD AIR and Bad drivers and no parking for the car is common here in Shanghai . what a joke...OH I would not drive a car made in China in North America , the quality is not the same..
This really is this type of great resource that you're supplying and also you provide away free of charge. I really like seeing websites that understand the need for supplying an excellent resource free of charge. Thank you for this excellent resource!,,,just a formality
A quick survey of the BAW website reveals that a few of the classic models (of the 212 and Zhanqi family) have been retired. The vehicles which remain are the Zhanqi 5-door soft-top (CK) and hardtop, the Jiaodoushi/Gladiator (3-door soft-top), the Zhanqi single cabin and double cabin pickups, and the 3-door LWB station wagon (2030/6460). The models discontinued are the 212 (all versions: jeep, SUV and truck) and the 5-door LWB station wagon. The departure of the 212 will be sadly missed by many (looking at you, Erik!).
Yeah, I was the proud owner of 4(!) BJ212's, all imported in the Netherlands between 1987-1991. Two of them are still on the road here in the vicinity of my village in France. Maintenance was a big problem, missing the authentic spare parts. Many travels to China I returned with a suitcase full of parts... I liberated myself from them by giving them away to neighbours and friends..
