the rules is 25years old

so 1984


But I see every body and all the Japanese cars, even some 90s cars, being welcome here so far.

This is a subject of much debate but zukiru is right. We're pretty open here.

Here in Atlanta, we use the "rules" brought on by the JCCS. 1985 and older. This would include any chassis made after 1985 that was started before that year.

I'd say it depends on the brand.

I agree cause of for the New School/Old School camps for Subarus are differentiated with the seperation of Legacys, SVXs, and Imprezas (among a few newer models)/ DLs, GLs, Loyales, XTs, Justys, and BRATs

You know, this is an interesting topic. Because I feel that even though the SVX is not even close to being a "historic car" in most states, I think it would fit right at home in the pages of JNC, along with some other cars like the Nissan NX2000, Mitsubishi Expo, etc.

Like the second gen Prelude (83-87). Remember when they where everywhere? I can't remember the last time I saw one. :?

That is true the SVX should belong in here. Just that for lineage the old school new school is well defined in the subaru camp. Especially for parts wise (the exception is the XT6 which the early Legacys had their brakes come from).

But I hear ya there Ben, oh btw I talked with Ryan Douthit yesterday giving him crap about subiesport lol.

Ryan's a great guy, definitely a friend of JNC. Us small publishers gotta stick together! :D

About the SVX/XT I guess I feel like JNC is a home for all of the overlooked cars, old or new :)

Yeah I know, he said that he knew you guys. My joke was around the amount of issues coming out recently for subiesport compaired to JNC :lol:

And yeah the XT in everyones eyes is old school for sure cause of it is all EA series engine and tranny, just the XT6 was a rendition of the EA-82 with 2 extra cylinders and the transition from 4x140 to 5x100 bolt pattern for the rims.... The SVX in the other hand is definitely one of those things that I have to agree belongs to JNC cause of they are one of the red headed step children of Subaru

LOL zukiru that is true, oh so true! My 76 is one of those that is often overlooked in the sea of wrx's, foresters, and legacys. Some people I talk to go "I didn't know they imported them back then" and had to correct them that the very first subies to come to our shore were the 1969 360's and they were made way before they were imported here even. And then they go ohhhh ok cool.

Go figure, people that don't know their history, goes to show how much of a learning curve there is about Subarus lol.

The SVX will need at least another 10 years to be a "classic". It was still being made in 97, the same time frame as the last-gen Supras, MR2's, 300zx's and 240zx's here in the states.

While those are all icon Japanese cars of the 90's, they still aren't quite yet classics, but assuredly will be!


It kind of reminds me how '70's American cars weren't considered "classics" for awhile, it wasn't until recently that they were put in that category and their values increased as much as the 50's and 60's cars did.

I think right now the 70's (and earlier) Japanese cars in general are the most collectible, and the most likely to be considered classics. The 80's cars are still seen quite often on the streets, and are still driven as beater cars by the average joe. It will take a few years or more for those cars to disappear from the streets to the point where people will lust for them (although some models like the AE86 have already hit that point due to special-interest fan bases).

But lets face it, the Japanese cars from the 80's weren't exactly the most exciting designs and haven't aged well compared to the 70's and 90's models! :P

Yeah, and with their reliability it'll be a while yet!

I beg to differ... just imagine a Z31 300ZX or slammed boxy-ass Mark II prowling the concrete jungles of Tokyo with neon lights reflecting off their paint. Too cool!
