Most automakers have their own museums that showcase the history of the entire marque, but last week we wrote about an entire museum dedicated to one model, the Suzuki Jimny. Typically, to warrant its own museum the model would have to be something special and widely, like a Skyline or Miata, but there are plenty more models that we’re honestly surprised don’t have a museum of their own. The ways to outfit the museum would be endless — one of every variation ever built, mountains of literature, promotional materials, scale models in dioramas, or all of the above. The possibilities are endless!
Which JNC model deserves its own museum?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What JNC would you pick if you had to charge through a snowy mountain?”
We thought that Subarus and Mitsubishis would rule the answers section this week, but we were wrong. Some of you chose small AWD cars like Daniel‘s Daihatsu Mira 4WD or Negishi no Keibajo‘s Subaru Justy. Others picked all-purpose RWD machines Lee L‘s Nissan Silvia S12 or エーイダン‘s Toyota AE86. Some went with more traditional answers, like Troy‘s Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution III or Styles‘ Pajero Evolution, but the winner last week was the appropriately named Santa Claus for his choice of a Tercel 4WD:
When the ol’ sleigh breaks down, or when the reindeer are too hungry to fly I know which vehicle I can count on in order to get me through the harsh winters up here in the North Pole. When I need to haul my elf brothers and sisters and reindeer food around and get back to my workshop safely I know I can always depend on my 1985 Toyota Tercel 4WD WAGON. That’s why I’ve designated it the official car of Santa Claus. So if you’re asking which car I would pick to charge through a snowy mountain, there’s really only one clear choice. MY Car, the 1985 Toyota Tercel 4WD WAGON. Ho Ho Ho!
