Now that we have all gotten used to writing “2018” like a pro, let’s take a gander back to 2017 and relive your junkyard highlights of the past year. Being in the heart of Tokyo, I don’t get many chances to hit junkyards but sometimes you can find cool stuff on the side of the road. One of my best junkyard scores was making friends with a yard owner and staff. They were a fountain of knowledge and, if you played your cards right, they would give you a heads up when a 1985 Supra rolls in the yard with mint 14×7 rims. But enough about that! I want to know what the scene is like in 2017. Is it getting harder to find stuff, more cut throat?
What”s your best junkyard score of 2017?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What JNC trinkets do you collect?“
Last week, we asked you to tell us what you can’t resist at car meets, the local toy store, or supermarket aisle. To be honest, we loved all the responses (it means we are justified in our obsession). Both エーイダン and nthuZis1 sound like me, unable to resist those little cars, and usually at a price point that says you’re crazy not to buy. エーイダン also works in a hobby store, where temptation waits every day. Ceasriojpn, has a fantastic apparel collection (and has added that LC jacket to my own hunt. Thanks?).
This week, we give the hat tip to Chris who is dedicated to giving the Eunos Roadster the proper respect and due. Come to Japan, we have a bevy of neat stuff. And that badge is awesome.
I´m into Eunos Roadster stuff. I collect everything from books (hyper rev, road&ster), shop option brochures. These things lead to the search for old car parts like optional bags, lights, rims and so on. Another big part is collecting model cars. Overall collecting stuff is a never ending story…
You would probably fall over if you knew the number of hours spent searching for parts on the internet. But hey…enjoy life and the things which make you happy – and collecting trinkets is part of life like enjoy driving the JNC.
Omedetou! Your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop.
