But, seldom was it better displayed as in the case of this young lad who used work as a mechanic at a Japanese tuning shop.

With the design approved, Soichiro Honda went on onto build a factory to construct pistons for Toyota. One thing led to another, and his business with modest beginnings came to be called as the Honda Motor Company, the second largest Japanese automobile manufacturer, 6th largest manufacturer in the world and the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles. Honda is also the largest engine-maker in the world, producing more than 14 million internal combustion engines each year. As of August 2008, Honda surpassed Chrysler as the 4th largest automobile manufacturer in the United States.
