As enthusiasts, we can be pretty particular when it comes to our cars. It can be annoying to passengers, sure, but they just don’t understand the love we have for our JNCs. My personal rule is never, ever, put your stank-ass shoes on the easily crack-able dashboards. Those are probably the single most valuable and irreplaceable parts on our entire cars.
What are the rules of the road for your JNC?
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 one car you’d get from the year you were born?”
We knew our readership ranged widely in age, but we were truly amazed and pleasantly surprised by the vast range found in the comments. We had green readers who, if they were Japan-market cars, would not be eligible for entry into the US yet, like Angelo, who chose a Stagea, or エーイダン, who went for a Caldina GT-T. On the other end of the spectrum, there were several venerable readers who came into this world before most Japanese cars, period, like Mike RL411, who chose a 1937 810 (that’s Cord, not Datsun); Mike in Long Beach, who opted for a 1945 Toyoda SA; or Negishi no Keibaja, who chose a 1958 Okamura Mikasa.
There were many clever comments, like dankan‘s circumvention of the rules to get a Ferrari 512 which he would then sell to populate his dream garage; or TheJWT, who shared an indelible memory of a first encounter with an NSX; or Josh, who cast aside fancier cars for one he felt nostalgic for, or Kats, whose dream it was to own the only Fairlady Z432 made in June 0f 1969.
However, the winner by a slim margin was Fozzy Osbourne, who put his answer in the form of a traditional Japanese poem:
Omedetou! Your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop.
