QotW: What did you ask JDM Santa Claus for this year?

It’s a well known fact that JDM Santa Claus takes off from his home in northern Hokkaido each winter in his shakotan sleigh pulled by eight flying Nara deer, playing not just Jingle Bells on his throttle, but “Carol of the Bells” in its entirety, as he brings rare parts and collectibles to all the good JNCers.

The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “How do you ‘baby’ your JNC?

The winner this week comes from Marcreco, who might even have our own editor-in-chief Ben beat when it comes to obsessive care over his AE86.

I have owned a two-tone blue 1986 corolla gts for almost 10 years now. It is pretty much OEM+ modified with all OEM interior, full Cusco suspension including the pillow ball front control arms and RS LSD, Yayoi 14×8-13 pink wheels and Recaro SPG, etc, etc, IMO one of the best here in the NW Region.

It gets driven about 1 mile a year, and before I sit inside, I will change my clothes to all black pants and a T-Shirt to prevent any “lint” from getting on the new Recaros. I also put on TRD gloves just to shift my TRD old shift knob and I take off my shoes before stepping inside the car…I just walk barefoot to grab my shoes.

Omedetou! Your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop.

    I got a 1973 Honda XL175 for Christmas, (just as I did in 1974, when I was 12), so I guess I got a minor JDM Christmas wish. This one has 1750 actual miles!

    Blimey, didn’t see that comment from last week’s QotW. Sounds like a fantastic car, but can’t relate to using it that little. When I’m lying on my death bed I’m pretty sure I won’t be thinking “gee, I wish I’d only driven my cars one mile a year!”…

    For this week’s QotW, I was rather hoping JDM Santa Claus would have delivered the cabin brace and original corner markers for my Eunos Roadster before Christmas, but unfortunately I’m going to have to wait until I’m back in work in January to pick them up…

    I already ordered a couple of model kits; SB1 Civic and the forthcoming Gemini Irmscher 4-door to be built as a USDM Chevy Spectrum, both from Hasegawa.

    This awesome colouring book of classic Japanese cars made by fellow JNC’er Tyler Linner/Sven7, using photos collected by Skorj (with his knowledge/blessing, obviously)!
