    Is Ben still a JNC moderator, anymore?

    "Has anybody here seen my old friend, Ben... Can you tell me where, he's gone? He freed alotta people..."

    Just kidding, not to imitate that 60's song. :lol:

    Is Ben still a mod on JNC? I noticed his name is no longer on the moderator list. If not, it would suck to not know anymore updates on his JNC Cressida goon.

    I go to a site, called "Old Parked Cars", which I think is based in the Pacific Coast... California, Washington, and Oregon. They drive around and take pics of everyday older 60's, 70's and 80's cars parked on streets or in the city.

    One of the guys, who does the photography, and I think is also an admin... is named Ben. Is that guy, OUR Ben? If you look closely, in some of the photos... you can see a red Toyota Mango Corolla... with a roof rack, in the background. I'm sure it is owned by the guy taking the photos... Ben.

    Every, few or so, comments... he makes references to the JNC site. That must be, our Ben, right?

    Hey man, thanks for the flattering OPC shout out! I think you're asking about Ben Hsu though, who is an awesome guy.

    I'm just a JNC fan (in our blogroll from day 1), and co-blog owner with my brother Tony. We shoot everything, except for the occasional viewer submission.

    FYI, my Mango was blue http://www.oldparkedcars.com/2010/09...e27-coupe.html and my wagon was red http://www.oldparkedcars.com/2011/02...ens-ninth.html.

    I've just stumbled onto some pictures of my past cars, so keep an eye out for those...if you're a Corolla fan .

    Wow, thanks for the reply, man. I LOVE your site, I also get a lil nostalgic, when I see 60s,70s, and 80s cars still driving around or parked amongst everyday traffic. I also love older Corollas, I've owned quite a few... A 77 orange Corolla SR5 liftback, an 82 blue Corolla Tercel, an 82 gray/black(later lavender, then electric blue) Corolla SR5 hardtop coupe, an 83 pacific blue Corolla SR5 hardtop coupe, a 92 grey Corolla wagon... and a few Celicas, Cressidas, Camrys, a Geo Prism, and a few Coronas, just to round out my love for older Toyotas. lol :wink:

    I'll also be getting my "old parked cars" restored and painted this spring/summer... my 87 Nissan S12 200sx and my 81 Toyota Corona. So stay tuned. :tu:

    I was wondering if he was still around... I sent him a pm about the stickers I ordered a while back but never got a reply.

    In that case, if I ordered stickers and never got them, who do I talk to? :? Just pm'd him cause he was all over the JNC sticker thread...

    An email would probably reach him faster. The blog keeps him busy enough that he's not on here too often.
