Rust in Peace: J's Tipo Ends Magazine Publication

Sad news from Japanland today. It’s the end of the road for J’s Tipo magazine. The publishers have announced that Issue 180 will be the last for the long-running automotive periodical.

They covered mostly new cars but always had a good amount of nostalgic car content. Henceforth, they will be a web-only publication.

We don’t know the fate of their sister titles like J’s Tipo Speed HistoriX, which was devoted to vintage Japanese cars and was only launched in November of 2009.

You can check out the current J’s Tipo website here. Be sure to spend some time browsing the section of old JDM brochures, all of which are downloadable in PDF format.

Rust in Peace to a great magazine.

    Why is it all the good magazines are closing shop? This is bringing back bad memories of SCC’s demise…

    Magazine or Webpage? All we can do is keep our favorites (magazines) strong with buying them or getting a subscription.

    Makes it all the more easier for JNC to say “look we got old school!”
