We recently learned that the Jun Auto Mechanic Honda Civic is up for sale. Tuning houses are small outfits, especially in Japan, and it’s basically impossible for them to keep everything they’ve built. Many once-revered demo cars plastered on the covers of magazines and catalogs have been released into the wild. Let’s say for a moment that you could take any one of these shop specials — even if it’s still owned by the original builders or has since been destroyed — home.
What tuning house demo car do you want to own?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What JNC concept deserves to be found or restored?”
There are many concepts that should be in museums, but sadly whose whereabouts are unknown. Nico jongeneel chose our lead image Toyota EX-1, but we had answers ranging from Ellis‘s suggestion of the Dome Zero to Lupus‘s Mitsubishi HSR to dankan‘s Mazda Taiki. However, perhaps because of both its beauty and the tragic way it met its end, the Mazda Furai seems like the proper choice to request from our hypothetical genie. In that vein, it is Daniel who takes this week’s prize:
nobody remembers the mazda furai? Would it be a big kick in the butt to everything modern to bring that concept back to life but with a rotary hydrogen engine and electric support? (to comply with emissions) it would be a great “in your face” to all the supercars of the moment and timeless in its design.
Omedetou, your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop!
