  1. The first Japanese car to win at WRC wasn’t a Subaru. It wasn’t a Mitsubishi, either, or a Toyota. It was a Mazda. On Valentine’s Day 1987, the humble Mazda 323 4WD (known as the Mazda 323 GTX in the … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  2. Oooo! Nice idea. We are planning to stay a few days in Hakone, which looks to be very close. Thanks! Is that a real place? Couldn't find it on Google Maps. Great ideas.. I'll definitely look at the MK Taxi tour. We will have 2-3 days in Kyoto. The boat ride also looks awesome. Thanks for the ideas, guys!
  3. These days Daihatsu is doing brisk business manufacturing an endless variety of kei cars as a Toyota subsidiary. It doesn’t have any presence to speak of in the world of motorsports today, but in the wild west days of 1960s … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  4. Haven't updated this in awhile. But, our trip to Japan is coming soon and we can't wait! I'll be meeting with Kats and taking a look at his Z432. Not sure if we have time for a hike up Fuji, but, we will be staying near the mountain for a few nights. It will be a long two weeks, but, we plan to fly into Tokyo and head SW to Kyoto for a few nights. I'll be sure to get some pics with Kats (and his car) to share on the site! Mike
  5. Nothing has changed. It's been this way for years. It's user-based. It's quite accurate, actually. The IP address for my service is owned by my Internet provider. I connect to their network, and this IP is routed out to the public through their Puyallup data center. You'll rarely see an IP address show someone's physical location. This kind of information is typically buried underneath your account at the service provider. The only real exception is an application that uses GPS tracking, which we don't use here.
  6. Have you checked your user account settings? Click on your username in the upper right, select account settings, and then review here:
  7. All changes and settings ask for your confirmation. For instance, the log in setting requires that you click the "remember me" checkbox when you log in. We also give you the ability to control all of these settings from your account controls. As far as ads, I've turned off all dating ads and Google does not allow anything related to adult material. Remember, we do have an option for turning off ads with a subscription. Our main source of income (to keep our lights on) is provided by user subscriptions and Google Ads. Once we get to a point where we can stand on our own, Google Ads will be removed. Until then, all I can do is try new things to help keep our little club going. 😉 Mike
  8. Because my wife is expecting and we will soon have a little car nut of our own, I have recently spent an inordinate amount of time in the baby section of stores, desperate for cool JNC-related stuff. Not surprisingly, it’s … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  9. This is caused by the automatic login setting. If you're concerned about it, you can change your preferences in the account settings. Go to devices and you can shut off the automatic login for any device used to connect to the site. Also if you want to see relevant ads to your browsing preferences, accept the cookies and you'll see stuff that you're interested in. Otherwise, you'll get random ads as promoted by Google. Mike

  11. @William E, head on over to http://zccw.org/zccw/ and get in touch with them directly.
  12. Usually when we dive into the waters of collecting cars, we inherit the gene from a family member or a group of friends, and our interests follow theirs. We usually start off with something simple and move up from there. … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  13. Music is great, but speakers are typically pretty boring. If you’re tired of bathing your eardrums with your favorite bops via a dull old cube or cylinder, perhaps a speaker shaped like a Subaru 360 is more your jam. These … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
