  1. We at JNC are proud to announce the next Hot Wheels car to bear our logo, the legendary R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R. This is the first casting beyond the chrome-bumper era to wear the mark, and we couldn’t think of … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  2. I really like the looks of the green on brown Z in the middle of those pics. Anyone know the owner? Need more pics of it.. 😉
  3. We at JNC certainly love our classic Japanese cars, but Japan’s true technological tour de force came on two wheels. The design, engineering, and performance of Japanese bikes had an even bigger impact on the motorcycling world than that of … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  4. Very cool. If any of you are interested in uploading all your images after the show, I can make a gallery area for it. Just let me know. Would like to see the images! Mike
  5. Mazda has trademarked a bunch of new model names in Europe, including one that might herald a sub-Miata sports offering: MX-30. The name recalls the sporty MX-3 hatchback of the 90s, which was sold in Japan as the Eunos Presso … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  6. When it comes to Japanese vehicles, Jay Leno’s Garage has been most entertaining when they’ve been about Honda bikes. The host has a true affinity for them in a way that’s not always there when he’s talking about, say, a … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  7. What if you were offered the lowest mileage Z31 300ZX Turbo 50th Anniversary edition that you’ve ever seen? The good news is that it’s fully optioned out and perfectly preserved. The bad news is that it’s fully optioned out and … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  8. Summer is a time for road trips, and there is perhaps no greater reward in life than making a journey in a car that you’ve built yourself, or cared for lovingly, or when even your timely arrival is not guaranteed. … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  9. Funny how things are turning around though. There once was a time that people searched far and wide to find the cheapest deal. Now people seem to be searching far and wide to find the best quality. There are good products that come out of China. Just reach into your pocket and look at your mobile phone. Manufacturers can no longer build disposable crap. I have a feeling the new generations will shift things back. Don't blame government, blame the consumer.
  10. Yuck! They should have at least put in one of those Retro Sound radios.. or I guess installing nothing in that area leaves it open for new owner to install whatever they want. I don't like that 3-dial A/C control panel at all.. it looks unfinished.
  11. I didn't read the description, but, did they explain the reason for the three dials where the radio should be located? It doesn't seem that Nissan would make that kind of modification..
  12. Kats, these concerns aren't just limited to cars and parts. Just look at household appliances, home construction materials, etc, etc.. Who do we blame? The manufacturer, or the majority of consumers who wants to buy these things for the cheapest price? In my old age, I'm starting to focus more on quality/workmanship of well made (and typically expensive) products. It's a lot easier to appreciate...
  13. Yokohama Tire has announced the GT Special Classic, a re-issue of its iconic sports radial tire from 1967. Developed in response to the expansion of Japan’s expressway system in the mid-1960s and the rise of performance cars, the original Yokohama … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  14. These days TRD USA’s primary focus is with NASCAR and dressing up some trucks, but back in the 80s and 90s, it was a Toyotaku’s dream come true. Founded in 1979, it’s celebrating its 40th anniversary and looking back at … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  15. Nissan’s Zama warehouse is a 400-plus collection of historic, racing and concept cars, a living catalog of the company’s long history. It used to be closed to the public, and only those with a special invitation could see the cars. … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
