Welcome to a new segment, “JNC Challenge,” that will be sprinkled in throughout the year. After stellar responses in previous QotW, we decided to put your creativity to the test.
The premise is simple, we will ask a situational question with parameters such as money, goals, repairs, etc. Based on the question and details, we will ask you to give your best response. Based on the best response, we will continue the story line until it plays out.
So, the first question is this: What JNC would you buy as a daily driver with a budget of $2,000 USD? Do you buy something that runs and drives fine with the full budget? Or, do you buy a cheaper project and fix it up with the left over money? Whatever you decide, it just has to run and drive. Must be rooted in reality, though. No father’s giving out old Toyota’s with Formula Atlantic engines installed…
The best answer is the one with the most thoughtful response. Remember, we will continue with the challenge based on this week’s response so choose wisely.
What JNC would you buy as a daily driver with a budget of $2000 USD?
As always, the most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW: What JNC should be in the Blade Runner universe?
Boy oh boy, we had some excellent answers. Right out the gate, Nigel came up with the Dome Zero, a magnificent prototype that was shown in 1975! Many of you agreed with this choice. Then, Lupus came up with the Subaru XT Alcyone, a vehicle rooted in the 80’s and quite possibly may have been influenced by the 1982 movie Blade Runner. In the end, I had to flip a coin and let lady luck tell us the winner with Lupus coming up heads! Congrats Lupus!
Subaru XT Alcyone and/or SVX Alcyone.
These where space ships at the time.
Nissan MID-4 would also be fine. Prototypes count too, doo they?
Omedetou, your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop!
