QotW: What do you want to know about Japan? (Part 2)
It’s that time again to ask any questions you might have about Japan. From car culture, to JNC, to travel and anything in between.
What do you want to know about Japan (Part 2)?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “Did you ever dream of owning a Nissan or Mitsubishi?“
Last week, we asked if you ever pined for a new shiny Mitsu or Nissan in your wonder years (and beyond). Maybe it was a Pajero ready to take on sand and sage, or a sporty number with any combination of names as long as it was commonly known as a Z.
The winning post came from Howard Dreispan who not only picked a company “collabo” but also was struck by the from-the-factory amazing body styling:
In 1984, I saw my first Starion/Conquest. I had never seen a car with those body lines before! It instantly became my dream? In 1986, I bought the ‘flat fender’ version. Then, one day while driving, I saw my first ever wide body! I had read about them in all 1980s magazines, but to see one, ‘WOW’! After 3 months of convincing (begging!) my wife to let me take the plunge, she very reluctantly,kind of said “yes”! (I traded in my 1986) I got my car Dec., 1988 (It’s a 1989), and have it to this day, 30 years! I am the original owner (92K original miles, paint, interior, etc., HKS parts installed in the ’90s). I love that car so much, that I also bought new, a 2006 Evo IX-MR, and a 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport LE. Yes, I am still married (34 years), and I am trying to convince her for number four!
Omedetou! Your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop.
