  1. Ford v. Ferrari might be the biggest car movie out right now, but there’s an even better one currently playing on Netflix — and it’s non-fiction. Shelby American is the latest release by Chassy Media, the production company of Adam … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  2. While we were celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Mazda Miata in the US at Laguna Seca, Roadster owners in Japan had their own shindig. Held at Mazda’s Miyoshi Proving Grounds, the event drew 2,200 cars and 3,500 fans of … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine

  4. By 2020 the 25-year threshold of what constitutes a classic car will cut off at 1995. What was the best Japanese car of that year? Back then, Japan’s Best Motoring sought the answer in a series of videos pitting several … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  5. Only 3 days left on that auction. I don't know, I've heard horror stories about Ferrari engines. It would be an interesting project though, for the right person.
  6. In recent years a number of Japanese companies have started up factory restoration programs for their iconic cars. Nissan, Mazda, Honda, and Toyota all have programs in place or in the works. Now, your dreams of creating the ultimate Gran … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine

  8. Last week Acura unveiled a very cool thing: a restomodded SLX with a modern RDX engine and drivetrain. It was clever, challenging, and unexpected — all the hallmarks of a great build. Since SUVs and crossovers outsell sedans these days, … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  9. Gents, in the future please refrain from responding in the forum and use the "report post" feature. I have tools and methods in the back-end that can usually help me determine if this is a spam bot or a real user. Just assuming this kind of user is a spammer on the front-end doesn't work. He could have been a valid user who was just trying to be friendly. However, in this case, I was 50/50 split on my decision. His profile looked legit but the red-flag was his posts were very general and the email address was questionable. It had nothing to do with our Facebook SSO or other integrations. Remember, I have tools that can help me solve the kinds of issues, so please report posts so I can look into it. Thank you! Mike
  10. Nevermind, it looks like he's going around and spamming. I'll take care of it.
  11. Damn guys, why so angry?
  12. There aren’t many cars like the Mazda Miata, and we don’t mean light, two-seat sports cars, even if their scarcity is indeed glaring these days. We’re talking about something even rarer — a machine that transcends the realm of car … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  13. When one ponders the modified Acura, it’s usually an B18C-swapped Integra or some kind of insane time attack NSX. The SLX sport utility vehicle is probably pretty far down that list, if one can remember that is exists at all. … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  14. Design patterns covering kyusha interiors fall into a special category of obsession for us. Who can resist the finely embossed crests in vinyl headrests, or the colorful swirls in 80s upholsteries? Unfortunately, these surfaces tend to be points of major … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  15. For 2020, the Japan Historics series returns to Hot Wheels’ premium line with three all-new castings and metal-base versions of two popular models. The beautiful five-car series continues to fill in the gaps of Japan’s automotive history with a distinctively … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
