Last week’s post about the FJ Company’s Land Cruiser restomods turned into heated discussion about skyrocketing prices of JNCs. We’ve seen some shocking prices for well-restored FJ40s, and while there are still examples within reach of most buyers, it may not be that way for long. We think FJ60s will follow soon, and when we talked to FJ Company last fall they said that the time to buy one was, “yesterday.” Even if you’re not looking for an apocalypse-ready rig the prices of most Japanese classics are rising, with the rate of increase depending on the model.
What JNC do you need to buy now before prices get ridic?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What JNC nameplate needs a decor set?”
The winner this week was Yuri, who came up with some brilliant ideas surrounding the Mitsubishi Starion. And with Mitsubishi now 34 percent owned by Nissan, who makes great decor sets, who knows, it could happen! Come on, Carlos Ghosn!
The Mitsubishi Starion.
Just think of the possibilities. Tableware trimmed around the edges in a beautiful motif replicating the simple front grille, coasters designed to look like the various unique and stunning factory alloys, and the piece de resistance; seatbelt inspired toilet paper that read “turbo turbo turbo turbo” as you unrolled it.
Omedetou! Your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop.
