Japanese Nostalgic Car Magazine

We have a special announcement to make today. In spring of 2008, we are launching Japanese Nostalgic Car as a magazine. First, we want to truly thank all of you for supporting JNC. It really means a lot to us to have you visit our little corner of the web, and to see so much passion for the same cars we love. Seriously, we appreciate it, a lot!

jncmag.jpgA print version has been part of our plan from the beginning, but the website isn’t going anywhere. We will still update the site with unique content and the latest event photos. Nothing’s changing on that front.

Like most publications, the web and print versions will complement each other, and the magazine will have unique content as well (the photo is just a sample mock-up). Though it may seem backwards in this day and age to go from digital to analog, so to speak, there are things a magazine can offer that a website can’t.

This includes large, full-color photos and more varied layouts in a format you can take anywhere, whether it be train, plane, bathroom, patio, beach, or a nice warm couch. Paper and ink aren’t going anywhere, and let’s face it, a hobby with a physical magazine carries more weight. There are multiple titles devoted to vintage British, German, Italian, and American cars, but none for Japanese. Most Americans drive Japanese cars, and yet are woefully unaware of their great history. Japanese cars need and deserve a place on the newsstand. It is our hope that the magazine will fill that void, bring more people to the hobby and prevent these cars from being heartlessly discarded when used up.

Because this is still very much a niche market, we’re starting out small. We’re aiming for one issue each quarter, and if things go well then perhaps we’ll make it monthly. We’re making substantial sacrifices, both personally and financially in this endeavor, but we think it’ll benefit the scene as a whole in the long run. As we grow, we’ll be looking for contributors as well, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re interested in joining, or if you’d just like to give us a suggestion.

As a thank you for being a JapaneseNostalgicCar.com reader, we’ll give you guys a subscription discount. We’re still working on the details, but stay tuned for more. Thank you! [Link to Forum]
