One man's treasure is another man's trash.
Your definition of JNC is probably different from the next guys - so who's right & who's wrong? Everyone, that's who.
As ToolZ stated...
If we start defining further what constitutes as a 'Nostalgic' then complications arise...
...What my father considers a 'classic car' is much different than what I would consider a classic car. The rolling 25 year rule, however, is accepted across the Universe and beyond as a triumphant pat on the back that an old jalopy has survived. JNC simply celebrates this feat in regards to Japanese cars.
Do we as fans of JNC want to be narrow minded elitists? Not I!
I may not like Joe Smoe's '88 Camry, or whats-his-name's '74 Datsun with a Mazda engine.... but that doesn't make them any less JNC.
JNC is a Potpourri of cars, parts, years and people.
Crown_mad put it nicely:
...It takes a true enthusiast to appreciate all cars for what they are, if you like it or not. Appreciate the time/effort/plans for the car and leave the old mindsets with the "traditional" muscle car meat heads.
We of JNC should be above the muscle car meat head mentality and enjoy the cars that the land of the rising sun has delivered to us.
Judge not thy fellow man or his car.
Let us enjoy what we have with open arms.
Peace, Love and JNC forever baby!
