Recently, we saw a great example of an AE82 with 10k on the odometer. It reminded me of the car in which I learned how to drive: our family’s 1985 AE82 in the same color, same interior, but with a manual and I believe it was a DX grade. The grille was different but the emblem was the same. “TOYOTA”. Simple, clean and undeniable.
Now, I’m a fan of emblems. I have a box of emblems that I’ve gathered over the years from junk yards and late-night eBay purchases. There are some excellent badges that I won’t say to keep the discussion free-flowing. The TOYOTA badge is not the best one out there, it’s just something from my early driving years. I do wish we got back to some of the “classic” badging… I’ll allow models that may not be in production now (but maybe could be coming back!) What do you think?
What JNC emblem/logo needs to come back?
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 make a great mobile office?”
Last week we asked what JNC would make a great mobile office. Ant suggested the sexy Skyline Super Silhouette which does have the diving board front bumper that could be used as a conference table, but highly impractical (the money spend on gas would kill the company credit line!).
Cesariojpn scoped a rare ’72 Nissan Caravan that has the space for a full office or a CIA sting operation… but boy oh boy is it going to be hard to find repair parts if it breaks down. Not sure a client will be wooed with the bright colors either…Randy nearly changed my mind with the renovation ideas complete with sound deadening and pop-up roof vents and suave red wine shag carpeting! but alas..
The winner this week is Dimitry with the slam dunk suggestion of the Toyota Century. The classic lines are, well, classy and can impress any client when you roll up in silver blue (black is too simple for your tastes). The smooth ride makes on-the-go paperwork a breeze. Add in that it comes in a V12 and has modern equipment makes it practical for entertaining guests–even with a few rounds of karaoke. Congrats!
