My AE86 sits across the ocean from me, tucked under a cover on the side of my folk’s house. From time to time, they tell me they’ve turned away wishful buyers, and it’s understandable. A few times the rejected try again after a few months, likely spotting the rust on the calipers grow. One gentleman comes by every month with new pitches, new ways to “help take the vehicle off their hands.” I admire his perseverance, but that car will be with me to the end. Who’s tried to buy your JNC? I mean really buy it. Any interesting stories, newfound friendships? Especially with prices climbing, surely this kind of thing is becoming more common.
Has anyone tried to buy your JNC?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “How would you spend $1 million on your JNCs?”
There were a number of great answers this week, diverse in theme, too. Many, like Lupus, said they would use the funds to build their dream garage. Dave, on the other hand, concocted a brilliant plan to save the manuals. Jeremy A would spend it all on a car that most would not spend even $1,000 to restore, while ahja wanted, admirably, to create enough AE86 parts to fill a Year One-like catalog. GSX-R35 said he would buy JNC (and we’d sell it, too!), but the winner this week is Hakofan. true to his name, would build the ultimate resto-mod C10 Skyline and then open up a shop to teach others about wrenching.
