QotW: When is it okay to stance?
Stance. It’s what all the youngin’s are into these days. Sometimes it looks cool; sometimes it’s downright painful to witness.
When is it okay to stance?
Yes, we know it’s popular. We also know it’s even more popular to hate on it. It’s been a style in Japan for ages, but it’s different there where roads are glass smooth. Here it’s a slow death sentence for your oil pan/fenders/spine/the entire car. Perhaps it’s time to issue the Three Laws of Stance, which decrees that if you must stance, stance something that is 1.) not rare, 2.) was not mint to begin with, and 3.) has no performance value whatsoever. Got a second-gen Mazda 6? Go nuts! Any Toyota/Honda/Infiniti made in the last 10 years? Here, I’ll grab a bat and help you roll. An RX-3, little-old-lady-owned Cressida, or Honda S2000? Sorry, get off my lawn.
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 most under-appreciated JNC?”
The winner this week is CherryX1R, who, not surprisingly, made an impassioned case for the Datsun Cherry.
the Datsun F10 is my vote and not just because it’s stated as such in the newest “Kidney Anyone” post. I am one of the few weirdo’s who doesn’t think that car is ugly. I love the F10 because of it’s funkiness, the hatchback especially. those taillights slap you right in the face and say “HEY, LOOK AT ME, ARE YOU LOOKIN AT ME, yeah I’m big and weird and i’m a geometrical shape which I don’t remember the name of right now, but i’m “DIFFERENT” from the rest of the taillight pack!!! so….yeah weird awesomeness right here. the first time I saw one in a old Datsun brochure I could not stop looking at the funkiness and made it a goal to reach to own a hatch F10 one day. I do not have one as of yet but what I do have is a couple of old brochures with the F10 in them and one of those funky in your face taillights, the headlight buckets share that same shape and if I recall the dashboard was pretty funky as well. and it just so happens that it’s the second gen version of my favorite Japanese car of all time, the Nissan Cherry X1R, so that’s even more Icing on the cake. I just find it a fascinating little car.
