  14. You’ve seen the 3D prototypes, now here is the first peek at the new Mazda RX-7 FD3S casting courtesy of the official Hot Wheels design team (if can follow all their antics at their Instagram account). Finished in a dark metallic … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  15. Today marks the first week in Japan that truly feels like spring is in the air. Temperatures are hovering right around T-shirt wearing digits (a JNC shirt found in the JNC Shop would do the trick). It’s time to tackle that honored … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
