Interiors. They just don’t make ‘em like they used to. Do you want to sit in the infinite blackness of an East German coal mine or the tan aftermath of a khaki explosion at the Dockers factory? Back in the day, you had choices: crushed velour, body-matched colors, even intricate embroidering on the headrests. Designers took the time to craft a sumptuous cabin. Therefore we ask:
Which JNC had the greatest interior?
Check out the plaid wonderland that is the insides of the 1978 Dodge Challenger, a rebadged Mitsubishi Galant Λ. Not only is it matched to the two-tone blue-on-white exterior, but in case its opulence gets you in the mood for some in-car amorousness there are built-in grab handles on the seats. There is a downside though. Good luck finding any trim pieces damaged or lost to time.
What say you, dear reader? As always, the most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a toy. Click through to see the winner of the last QotW, “What’s the worst example of badge engineering?”
It was tough picking a winner this week. Dickie had a great screed against the manufactured faux-individualism ofthe Scion brand that everyone should go and read for the sheer entertainment value of it, but alas, Scion is too new. So instead we must award the crown to Kevin, who turned the question on its ear with his choice of the Chevy LUV.
My vote is going to have to go to the Chevy LUV, though in all honesty, it just might be one of the BEST examples of badge engineering.
I’ve met many-a redneck who drive them with pride, thinking to themselves, “well isn’t that little pickup the darn cutest thing I ever did see?”
So is it the best or worst? Does redneck love make you a success, or a failure? That’s a highly debatable question.
I mean it doesn’t really look Japanese at all. It looks to me like it SHOULD be a Chevrolet truck, a mini Cheyenne if you will, like it belongs in the family. And that is saying quite a lot, as this is coming from someone raised through and through on the Golden Bowtie.
Omedetou, your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop!
