Today’s QotW comes on the heels of Mitsubishi’s centennial anniversary of building automobiles and their announcement to rebuild a Mitsubishi Model A. It’s not a pure reproduction, but will be built on an Outlander PHEV chassis and powertrain. This Kobe carriage will have some scoot. Interestingly, Mitsubishi is not tackling this feat alone — West Coast Customs has been tapped for the build.
If your eyebrow has been lifted, you are alone. JNC staffers are also scratching their heads. What do you think of Mitsubishi’s 100 year celebration plan? Are they on point or misguided? Should they have tapped their garage of rally monsters, turbo sports cars, or legendary SUVs?
How should Mitsubishi have celebrated their 100 years of JNC?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What does your mom think of your JNC?”
From last week’s comments, I get the sense that there are 2 types of moms out there. Moms that can appreciate the practicality and styling of a JNC; and others that would rather eat 2-day old leftover meatloaf than even glance at old J-tin. Many have the experience of the first type such as with Dave Patten and Robin, whose moms had an appreciation from the beginning; while others such as jivecom and Jayrdee will forever be explaining their pride and joy and combating the sound advice of buying something new and reliable.
This week’s winner is from Keith Measures, whose mom hails from another camp: JNC rival! We wish you luck in winning over your mom from the Datsun camp to the Toyota camp, but we won’t hold our breath.
My mother had a Datsun 260 when she was around my age. So of course with my celica she considers us sworn enemies.
