American Muscle. European Design. German engineering. Italian flair. This is what gets thrown around the wash bay when describing classic cars from various areas. How about JNCs? Excluding the mid 90s of the “rice burner” era, what say you when thinking of the cars of the JNC line-up. How are they remembered now or will be remembered in the coming ages.
What defines the era known as JNC?
As always, the most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “Which JNC needs the Hot Wheels treatment?”
Last week’s QotW had some great entries but it came down to the compacts. It’s funny how history repeats itself. Now, we find all major manufacturers bringing compacts and subcompacts into the market for the race to the bottom. Let’s not forget the frugal, yet enticing Toyota Starlet KP60 (among others) submitted by Matthew Vona:
Like said above mid 80’s JNC’s would be very nice. But i personally prefer Kp60 Starlets, especialy with the N2 TRD bodykit, or Toyota Cressida X71, mk1 Soarer, R30-R31 Skylines, 85′ 300zx.
It’s about time the small, compacts that had less flare (except the N2 widebodys, hehe) as the Skylines, AE86s, and Civics have a chance to shine in the palms of our hands. Come on HW! And give us those great green, orange, and 2-tone colors this model deserves!
Omedetou, your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop!
