JNC Greetings from NorCal, Part III

img_3018
Today we were all over the place, from Concord to San Fran to San Jose. The most exciting moment came when one of our subjects’ cars ran out of gas on I-280 and coasted to a stop in the middle of the right lane. We helped the owner push it onto the almost nonexistent shoulder as SUVs flew by at 80mph and went off to buy a gas can and some fuel. When we returned, one of California’s finest was offering to shove the mint nostalgic to the next exit with his standard issue CHP Crown Vic’s push bar. Luckily, we were able to gas the car up and drive it under its own power. The whole experience was quite scary when you think about all the cars that get hit while pulled over.

Anyway, here’s another sneak peek at an upcoming JNC magazine feature car, which is not the one that ran out of gas. Again, first one to guess the car (make and model) wins a prize when we return. Tee hee!

    Prob wrong but cos it hasn’t been guessed R31 coupe, BLAM! Not R30 coupe or R31 Passage GT as stated above.

    Not R30 I think, R30 has a stainless trim that covers the whole a-pillar. Going by the shape of the seat and headrest, actually I am thinking Toyota….dunno why

    Deffinatly not an a R30, mirror is wrong, chair is wrong, they didnt come in leather. Not an R31 either for the same reasons…

    My guess is a mitsubishi sopporo / scorpion … but the mirrors are making me think twice.
