we have launched a new website: ChinaCarHistory.com. The site is about the history of cars in China, telling about Chinese cars, joint venture cars, and rare imported cars. Our timeline starts in 1925, when the very first vehicles were assembled in China, and ends in 2009, when China became the largest vehicle market in the world.
The main historians are: Sam Faulkner, Navigator84, and me, but we hope to welcome more writers in the future. If you have anything to share, old photos, books, or brochures, please let us know.
All the articles on the ChinaCarHistory.com are new, but I will copy-paste the entire history-category of this website to new one, eventually. For now, please enjoy our latest about the Jiefang CA5020XJH and the Buick GL8.
