QotW: What rite of passage every JNC owner must endure?
Complete this sentence. You’re not a JNC owner unless you… Prefer driving a slow car fast? Live in deathly fear of salt? Have overpaid for parts from Japan? Have abused your AAA towing privileges to move a parts car? With every subculture there are certain joys hardships and that its members can jointly celebrate or commiserate in.
What rite of passage every JNC owner must endure?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “Where do you like to drive your JNC?”
The answers from last week ranged from the poetic, like Ian Gopez‘s ode to autocrossing, to the emotional, like Howard Drespain‘s drives down memory lane, to the hilarious, like Yuri‘s question to our question. The winner, however, came from Al‘s fantastic imagination.
I like to drive my JNC (RX7 FD) like it was mwant to be driven, throught curves, hill ups ans downs and listening to an eclectic mix of japanese music and Elvis. I imagine myself on an old Cosmo with MAT-1 livery, so I could go chasing some kaijus thinking I’m Ultraman, keeping the revs high up, changing gears as if they were choreographed movements to make the monster explode. We have to be careful the red light does not start to blink, otherwise you have to go home early, without defeating the monster the right way. That means trouble for later.
Once it is all fonesh, hopefully in a good way and without red lights blinking, you get out, after the struggle at the tail of the monstrous ride, where you left your soul in the asphalt in the form of burnt rubber, and you are back to the garage, and on your human host form, a temporarily disguise until the next kaiju appears.
It’s not over, next weekend, if it does not rain, we will be back with another episode…
Omedetou! Your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop.
