Though symbolized by the turkey, Thanksgiving is all about being grateful for what you have. When what you have is an old Japanese car, however, it may be easier to curse your skinned knuckles than count your blessings.
What are you most thankful for?
may will definitely sound cheesy, but we are thankful for all our loyal readers — every one of you who have rescued an under-appreciated car from the scrapyard, inspired a friend to restore the old heap in his dad’s backyard, or simply helped a fellow JNCer turn a wrench. A big domo arigato gozaimasu to you all.
What say you, dear reader? 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’s the greatest nostalgic Honda?”
We once again had many great answers, from JHMAB2‘s nomination of the Super Cub to Walter‘s vote for the 1300 to The Black CRX‘s nod for the first-gen Accord. The winner, however, was xs10shl‘s summary of the 1967 Italian Grand Prix.
Honda RA300. Imagine a 3 year-old-car company building an F1 car, and winning the car’s first-ever competitive F1 race, at the Italian Grand Prix, no less. “Hello, World- we’ve arrived! Lovely Ferrari you’ve got there . . . which way to the podium? I’ve got to go pick up my trophy.”
Of course, it was all downhill from that point, but I could only imagine the vibe at the factory the following week. It must have been marvelous!
Omedetou, your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop!
