JCCS Week: "My Favorite Models" by Ben Hsu, Editor-in-Chief, Japanese Nostalgic Car...
It is officially JCCS week, as we look forward to the upcoming Japanese Classic Car Show in Long Beach, California on September 15. The Lamley Group will be there, and is taking the week to celebrate:
The magazine and website Japanese Nostalgic Car has been a friend and supporter of the Japanese Classic Car Show, as well as a driving force behind the JDM movement here in the US and abroad. If you are not following their blog, I highly suggest you do. Every post is an education. It won't surprise you as well that among the folks at JNC, there exists a number of diecast enthusiasts. Maybe that is why you have seen the JNC logo on not one, but TWO Hot Wheels cars; the Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-X and the Mazda RX-7.
The chief enthusiast over at JNC is none other than co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Ben Hsu. I asked Ben about what his favorite diecast models were then and now, and his answer was very interesting, especially coming from someone who eats and sleeps j-tin.
Please enjoy the article, and keep coming back as each day we will profile the designs of Hot Wheels' resident JDM expert, Jun Imai. Happy JCCS week and we will see you in Long Beach...
