Automakers often incorporate classic design cues into the modern cars. Sometimes they’re obvious, like the quad taillights of the Nissan GT-R. Sometimes they’re obscure, like the C-pillar of the second-generation Scion tC. There are probably some that only the most die-hard otaku will notice.
What’s the most interesting JNC throwback design cue?
What say you, dear reader? As always, the most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What’s your most brutal tale of JNC price inflation?”
From $48,000 Mazda RX-3s to $5,500 Fairlady Z432s, the tales of price inflation are both unsurprising and yet, somehow, shocking. However, the tale that got us thinking the most was Steve‘s out-of-the-box (or, rather, mint-in-box) thinking:
I was emailing my nephew since I had heard from his brother that he collected Hot Wheels. It dawned on me that the most brutal JNC price inflation has got to be the Hot Wheels Vintage Racing Series BRE 510: from $4.95 at Walmart at introduction to $203 on ebay last month. A 40X increase in 3~4 years!!!!
Omedetou, your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop!
