It also looks like this one can communicate with the cars computer (OBD-II) but we don't have the luxury in our classic Z.. https://www.waylens.com/ I really dislike the styling of most of the cheap cameras. They look like a phone or camera mounted on the dash or rear-view mirror (sometimes with cables sticking out). If I was going to do this, it would need to look like it's part of the car. Garmin seems to make some good products: https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/cOnTheRoad-c533-p1.html Whatever you end up buying, can you update us on the experience?
  2. Sometimes it’s really hard to figure out what to get your beloved for an anniversary, especially a milestone one like the 30th. Thankfully, Subaru’s in-house motorsports division has come to the rescue with a suggestion — a teddy bear and … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine

  5. Polyphony Digital has announced the December update to Gran Turismo Sport. It includes a bunch of classics, like the Bandit Trans-Am and split-window 1963 Corvette, but JNCers are probably most concerned with Sung Kang’s Fugu Z. Actually, though, there’s an … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  6. Every time you see a new crossover ambling down the street, clogging your view, remember what life could have been. In this 1975 Japanese street scene, fastbacks are everywhere. In the car park to the right there’s a Corona Mark … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine

  9. Carlos “Le Cost Killer” Ghosn came to Nissan at a time when the company was in massive debt, due partially to the fact that it was building too many different and over-engineered cars. He started a ruthless cost-slashing campaign that … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine

  13. Last year Nissan announced to great fanfare the first phase of its Heritage Parts program. Through its NISMO division, the company would re-issue parts for the R32 Skyline GT-R, and if the program was successful enough Nissan would expand the … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
