Two local businessmen destroy a Japanese made car in 1988.

American car companies suffered in the 1980s as Japanese vehicles were cheaper and more reliable. Some major US car companies even had to file for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection to avoid going under.

In response, American business owners large and small made a heavy "Buy American" push in the late 1980s as the quality of Japanese goods soared.

K2 North Pillar. 1982.

A Japanese expedition opened this route on the K2 this time without the additional use of oxygen. It must be remembered that on this northern route the approach is made from the Chinese side; which involves miles and miles of desolation, the use of camels to cross a desert and a dangerous crossing through a river in the area.

A total of 7 climbers made it to the top, dying one of them on the descent.

This route is the third in successful ascension with 29 summits. The Japanese expedition of 82 (7 ascension) was followed by the following expeditions:

1983- Italian and Czech Expedition. 4 Ascension.
1990- American Expedition. 3 Ascension.
1994- Spanish Expedition. 4 rises, 1 dead.
1996- Polish Expedition. 4 Ascension.
1996 - Russian Expedition. 3 rises, 1 dead.
2007- Kazaja Expedition. 2 Ascensioners.
2011 - International Expedition. 2 Ascensioners.

Notable is that all the successful expeditions that were just described were without supplementary oxygen.
