  1. Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    @Home Built by Jeff, hey I went through and cleaned up your links for ya. There were some double and triple videos in the posts. Sorry it's a little confusing to post videos here. Easiest way is to copy the link from Youtube in the "share" option on the bottom right of your videos. After posting them, it should show a video directly in the forum.
  2. In the past, the Tokyo Auto Salon has been pretty easy for us to cover. The show is still geared towards cars on the cutting edge of performance tech and style, so true chrome-bumpered classics were fairly thin on the ground. However, as time … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  3. Imagine that!

    The way I understand it is the woman was crossing the road in the dark and was NOT on a crosswalk. A human would have also likely killed her. Sure, Uber will be hit hard on this one, but, it still doesn't make sense why this woman was expecting a car to stop for her. I see this all the time.. people cross the road and expect cars to stop. Frankly, I will never assume a car will stop for me until I make eye contact with the driver. This is just common sense.

  6. JNC VIDEO: FJ Company

    We first came across The FJ Company’s work at SEMA 2016 and were impressed by their workmanship. The company’s latest promotional video gives a peek inside their shop, showing how much effort goes into building one of their FJ40s. Unlike some of its … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  7. The rumor last week that Nissan — looking on forlornly as rival Toyota joined hands with BMW on the new Supra — would turn to Mercedes to co-develop the next Z has sparked another round of gossip. This time, the Mercedes partnership is debunked, while other theories … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  8. The food at Japan’s service areas is so good that NEXCO East, the expressway management company for eastern Japan, holds a contest to determine which one has the most tasty lunch. The Grand Prix winner this year was just announced, … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  9. This is a friendly reminder from JNC that it’s the first day of spring. That means it’s time for the cherry blossoms to come out, and for your car that’s been in hibernation all winter to come out as well. Take to the … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  10. Fifty years ago, Mazda Canada started when a Familia Rotary Coupe, known on this side of the Pacific as an R100, went on sale. To celebrate half a century of sales, Mazda Canada released a flashback video covering significant milestones and models. We hate … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  11. Yet another EFI help thread :/

    What kind of gas are you using?
  12. Sometimes, when we see a car, it’s love at first sight. An example of this is the primal reaction to motor show unveils (such as last week’s QotW). A car can have that special “something” that shoots straight to your … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
