    Possibility of having a "Brochure and Advertising Category"?

    Hello fellow members and moderators.
    I only recently joined this forum and would like to compliment everybody on a fantastic site.
    I am amazed by how friendly and helpful the members are and congratulate the dedicated people who made this happen.
    Not only is this forum user friendly and easy to navigate but the members themselves are informed and ready to share their knowledge with those of us who are less technically proficient.
    I even started a light-hearted thread myself on Japanese Nostalgic Limousines. It is a little bit silly but hopefully funny and I guarantee there is at least one member out there who owns, is modifying/restoring or who is looking to purchase a luxury retro limo!
    Anyway, the reason for this post is that I have noticed there is no dedicated category for Brochures and Advertising.
    I have (on my computers swollen brain) a collection of brochures and advertising and I was considering posting it on here. They are a source of invaluable information and can often be a source of inspiration when you are saving for that special classic car or donīt know which direction to go on your restoration project.
    So, why does this need a dedicated category instead of just posting them under the garage sections of particular manufacturers?
    I had considered this but if I start a thread under say Datsun and Nissan garage it is going to be many many many pages long. Other people will contribute and before long it will be too much of a pain to look through everything until you find the specific model you are looking for.
    Also, many people collect the originals of these and a dedicated category would allow for a For Sale/Wanted section.
    I also considered posting a long list of links to other sites but cīmon, this is JNC. As far as I am aware this is the biggest and best site for classic J-Tin. We have the opportunity here to create the biggest online database of brochures and advertising for classic Japanese cars so everybody can access it.
    JNC is also an international forum and brochures and advertising are country specific.
    Colours, models, model names and manufacturers names often vary wildly.
    Sure, maybe you have seen a Datsun 240Z brochure but have you compared it to a Nissan Fairlady Z brochure of the same era?
    As I said, this is an international community. We even have members in Japan. Wouldnīt you guys like to see this?
    Members, let me know what you think by posting a reply here but DO NOT post any brochures here (for reasons mentioned above). Would you be interested in a dedicated category for brochures and advertising?
    Moderators, what do you think? Is it feasible/do we have room?
    Anyway,thanks for listening.
    I will post an example of what I am talking about in about 5 minutes.


    (Bare with me, I had all this typed with photographs and my computer crashed and I lost everything).

    Re: Possibility of having a "Brochure and Advertising Catego

    OK, here is an example of what I am talking about.
    A bit random - It is a 1974 Dutch Datsun 120Y brochure! Fan-bloody-tastic!
    Enjoy....

    Now, would you not like to see this for your car and from every market in the world where it was sold?

    Forgot to mention, if we can make this happen I will spend a few days posting what I have on my computer to start the ball rolling.
    Thanks again for listening.

    Cool, I never knew Nissan did an ad campaign with the cast of "Boogie Nights." :lol:

    I like this idea. Many of us collect assorted ephemera of our favourite car/marquee, and sharing it with the rest of the world would not only be fun, but an invaluable resource as well. For example, I'm sure that Dutch ad shows some feautures specific to Dutch cars (indicators, trim, etc.), making it great reference material for someone restoring a car to that specification.

    The more observant of you will notice that the Finland version in standard trim did not come with the cast from boogie nights.

    ... and just to be fair, they are not all Datsun/Nissan

    This is a great idea, I can contribute as well.

    I know I have S13 Silvia catalogue, as well as Bluebird of the same era, Skylines, Cedric/Gloria/Cima, etc. of the same era, all in Japanese. I also have early 70s Cedric, Laurel and some others, I forgot, in Japanese. I have some US brochures, too.

    Only thing, I have no scanner. :cry:

    1973 240Z service manual
    MkII Supra service manual
    KP61 wiring diagrams
    much of the TRD Bible
    I also have an old Dobi catalog for mid 80s Toyota
