We tend to focus on golden year JNCs of nimble coupes, opulent sedans and obscure machines that could only dream of pegging 60 mph on a long stretch of road. But, another kind of JNC was always there, doing the dirty work of moving old couches and tables, braving all manner of bad weather where the only accessory was a Little Trees air freshener. The more I think about JNC mini-trucks, the more I appreciate them and want to get one. How do you feel about them? Any fun stories or desires for a lil’ JNC truck in your future?
Do you have a special spot in your heart for JNC mini-trucks?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What do you do with the double DIN hole?”
It seems many of you like to keep the double DIN clean and pure. Either that, or they’re walled off entirely to listen to the sweet tunes of the engine. Or, go back to basics with a period correct deck. We were surprised how many are going the Bluetooth route now. It makes sense with the confined space, especially if you’re not looking to change anyone at Bass Wars.
It was pure luck that last weekend I was standing at the corner of the new Bic Camera in Akiba, at 7 pm while reading the comments from last week. I looked up to see larger-than-life billboards, an itasha Mark II, and a shop in the distance selling CB radio antennas (people still use those?) with what can only be a several thousand dollar-a-month wall of lighting in the interior.
Alan nailed it if only for the excellent timing. Hats off! My only suggestion is to source out a set of TS-X9 rear deck speakers!
Fill it with a big honkin 1996-vintage JDM Alpine double deck with a motorized multicolor graphics screen, 6-disc magazine changer AND Dolby cassette deck. Graphics and gizmos, looks like Akihabara at night.
Omedetou! Your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop.
