QotW: What leisure activity do you do with your JNC?

When you brought your JNC home for the first time, it may have been because you had a love for its design, unique features, or capabilities. Over time, your JNC had to take on the routine duties of daily life. Sure, it can get you to school or work and back. Or, you might buff it every weekend with a diaper. But we’re curious about how do you utilize your JNC for fun? Does it pack around your set of hockey gear, or act as a quick mode of transportation to zip down to the tennis court? We want to know how your JNC fits into your leisure lifestyle.

What leisure activity do you do with your JNC?

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 scariest looking JNC?

The winner this week by a long shot was Tj, whose logic is basically unassailable:

The first car that springs to mind when being asked what the scariest JNC might be is the original Mazda Cosmo with its spaceship styling invoking thoughts of extraterrestrial visitors bringing with them interstellar domination and enslavement,l. But no, these days it’s a cutesy nostalgia trip back to what the 60’s thought the future might look like. It’s more fun than scary.

Or, how about the Subaru 360? Stay with me! It’s adorable cuteness is just a ploy, simply bait to lure unsuspecting victims into… Yeah nah, I just started making that up to fill out the position of a second suggestion trying to pad out the narrative.

No. The scariest JNC is far more familiar to all of us and yet, it takes many different forms. We all know it’s terror but are unable to describe it to others potentially facing the same threat.
You see, it’s an insidious threat. Manifesting most innocently at first before stealthily wrapping it’s tendrils around your brain stem, slowly feeling out just what buttons in your subconscious it needs to push. By the time you notice, it’s too late.
It has control. It owns you now. Down to your very bones.

It isn’t some rare and exotic parasite that you pick up by chance on some far flung adventure into the unknown. It’s right here. Never far from you at any time no matter where you go. In fact, it could be in your garage RIGHT NOW!!
The scariest JNC of all is the unfinished project car.

It’s burrowed in your garage like a cancerous growth. And like a cancerous growth it indeed grows larger as the pile of spare parts stacked on top of it grows and grows until eventually it becomes a mantle for whatever other junk you need to put in your garage but can’t reach to put on the back shelf because of the three gearboxes, spare seat and some random fibreglass kayak that you’ve never seen before that are now blocking the way.
It will drain you of your time. It will drain you of your funds. It will drain you of your tolerance of the question “when are you going to get rid of that heap of shit”

Indeed friends, the JNC that instills the most fear isn’t some conquer from the stars or some camoflauged predator. It’s the one that’s been in our lives all along.
It’s the one we’ll never let go.

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

    My Daihatsu was never an actual daily-driver. As school-work-home traveling device it was in use only during warm season, never during winter.
    For a short amout of time during His partneship with me i pushed Him hard on track and between cones on gymkhana-like stages.
    But currently… Well… Driving Him became a leisure activity itself. The car remained in a track-spec in therms of suspension so it’s rather uncomfortable and chelanging to handle on Polish road full of pot holes big enough to swallow a kei-car. So my leisure activity involving driving my JNC is driving my JNC.

    For many winters I have had Datsun 510 for a IceTrack driving. Most of my Ice Datsuns have been almost mint condition. Last had a Classiccar MOT or historical vehicle status here. And for this Winter I have purchased a Classic MOT Datsun b310 Sunny 140Y. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwN-aRfsKcQ
