DCY Team

    Team in Japan

They all call me Mickey Mouse
Michiyuki (Mickey) - Purchase manager


Mickey is one of our main men in Japan, he works alongside Max (another one of our buying team) with hands on checking of each vehicle. Mickey or Max actually view the cars in person and inspect them to make sure they are up to the standard we require. Mickey is our star man at translating all auction sheets and anything with Japanese writing on it.



Give me all your money
Yuko - Administration / payments


Yuko is in the hot seat, transferring all payments to auction houses, garages, tuning shops and the private seller depending on who we purchased the from. Yuko also arranges all transportation costs of the vehicles to the docks and arranges all the shipping of the cars to the UK. Yuko is also in charge of all money conversions from the UK to Japan.



Masahiro - Service manager


Masahiro deals with all the various companies we use in Japan to aid our sale and transportation to the UK. If there's any sort of problem that may arise Masahiro is the man to sort it out. Masahiro has a fantastic relationship with tuners and helps to line up a viewing for Max or Mickey to go and inspect the vehicle before they get shipped over.



How did you get my photo, grrrrr ?
His name is Max - Vehicle buyer


Max is the main buyer of all vehicles in Japan. Max has been buying cars for the UK market for over 15 years and his experience means everything, and he is fully aware of the high standard required by DCY and every car is thoroughly inspected before purchase.




    Team in the UK

That sun is bright !
Barrie - Managing Director


Barrie is one of the original partners in Distinctive Cars York. His passion for cars, especially Japanese ones is what drove DCY to leave the UK performance cars behind and move onto the Japanese market. Today Barrie concentrates on choosing the cars to import from Japan. He also undertakes 90% of all the cars we order through our 'order service'



Swanny thinks he is so good looking!
Jamie (George) - Managing Director


George is the other one of the original partners of Distinctive Cars York. His passion and his enthusiasm for cars is what pushed Barrie and George together in the first place. George is found in the office nowadays, dealing with emails invoices and all web related issues, he has also negotiated very good prices on parts and body styling and can pass these prices to the customers.




They say if the wind changes
Mick (Stig) - Mechanic


Mick plays an important role in Distinctive Cars York as he inspects and services every car before it goes out of the doors. Mick also built and maintains all the DCY demo cars; he also drove the drag car in 2005/2006 and drove in the pro class of Time Attack in 2007. Mick has an excellent history in racing, whether it's in the seat or in development as the car builder.




A nice new shinny Skyline, mmmmm !
James - (2drift) - Drift Driver


James is now in his second year, in the driving seat of the DCY R32 GTS-R Drift car. 2008 saw James finish 11 in the EDC which was a very good finish for his first year. 2009 paints a whole new picture, an all new spec for the car with 100bhp more on tap and more lock than Owl neck! Keep up to date with James's events and results on the Media pages.




James - (Media) - Vehicle Managment


James started at DCY in summer 2012, having just finished collage with flying colours. James had been a regular face at DCY in the past helping out on a Saturday. After gaining his diplomas at collage in Motor maintanance, service & repair, DCY head hunted James from his previous employer. James can turn his hand to everything presented to him, whether that's a valet, pre delivery inspection or aiding Mick on areas of vehicle tuning & repair. James just recently inherrited his new nickname Media, ask him about it next time you in at DCY.



God, I am Handsome !
William - (Swanny) - Apprentice


Swanny started work early 2006 as a pre-sales detailer (basically he prep's the cars before they are collected by the customer). Very eager to learn, Swanny then started carrying out other roles such as SVA preparations and Swanny is now working part time while studying Automotive Technology at Sheffield University as well as been the a pit crew member for DCY in 2007, 2008 & 2009. 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013




Andrew (Curly) - DCY events organiser


What can we say about Curly...... Once nominated for the "biggest Pisshead" award in FHM, he never stops to amaze us. Curly and fireworks don't mix either, that ones a long story but he was unable to sit down for 4 weeks! Curly isn't really part of DCY he just keeps us entertained when we travel away to events & Shows.




Alright Dudes !!
Danny - DCY Doser


Since Curlys commitments at home (he's got a bird) DCY have been looking for a replacement entertainer. Danny has been a familiar face with DCY at shows and events and his calm, chilled manor is welcomed in the pits, hIs help is much appreciated too!
