If you have an old Japanese car, it’s not difficult to find yourself with a garage full of old Japanese parts, too. Even weird stuff like a 350mm Hitman steering wheel.
What’s your most prized JNC part?
What say you, dear reader? As always, 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 best Japanese car name?”
From a landslide of great answers we had to pick just one. Just to mention a few, Bryan was succinct and to the point about “Datsun,” Bob gave us a good chuckle with his rationale for “Debonair,” and Nathan provided rousing reasoning for choosing “Skyline.” This weeks winner, however, was Andrew, for his inspiring explanation of “Soarer”:
I like the name Soarer. Maybe a bit awkward to English ears, but it’s one of the few words whose actual sound evokes very similar meanings in both languages:
ソアラ (soara) is really similar sounding to 空 (sora), which means the sky or heavens.
I just like that this sound means very similar things in such different languages. And we can all find common ground when it comes to RWD GT cars with turbo straight sixes, right?
Omedetou, your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop!
