Default 25 JDM Honda Beats at Duncan Imports

Recently I was able to see the vehicles for sale at Duncan Imports at Christiansburg, VA I81Exit 118 not far from Virginia Tech I had read about in Autoweek years ago. Wow, it is like a museum, 3 warehouses full of JDM and other cars for sale. They had 25 Honda Beats $4,500-$10,000.
Check out their website Duncan Imports & Classic Cars | Japanese Domestic Vehicles for Sale

He also owns a Honda Dealership nearby.

Oh. My. Gosh.

This is just amazing!

If there's one thing that might get me to give up my Insight, it's a Beat...

I didn't ask about JDM parts. Call or email David Crawford who showed me the vehicles at 540 808 6433 [email protected]

The 'Article' section on their web site has more information and pictures. Also, check Ebay for Honda Beat Convertible parts and for sale section.

Yes, it is an awesome place for seeing Japan Kei class cars and other US, and international brands. There are all sorts. Some are part of his collection, but most are for sale.

Any idea on how paperwork works with Duncan Imports? I spoke with my local dealer and he said he'd had a snag getting it registered, so it's "offroad use only" until he can figure it out.

From what David Crawford told me when I was there 3 weeks ago, it is no problem. Call or email him.
