For a while now we’ve been meaning to sort a buyers guide for the cube as folks often pop up on the forum or Facebook group and say they are going to look at a cube but what key items are specific to look for when viewing a cube to buy! Well off the back of the spot the differences article here we go with what to keep an eye out for when buying a gen 2.
The Gen 3 was the first cube sold outside Japan and whilst that is great for us all as it should have meant parts are easier to source (not always the case I know!) there are subtle differences to our little boxes depending where in the world you are so lets take a look at a few…
So the being unable to open the back door of a gen 3 and being an MOT fail reared it’s ugly head on the face book group recently and after I gave a quick write up David Joy ran with my words and got his car working again. As a bonus he took my words and added a whole heap of Photos and produced a write up bolstering my descriptions where he felt useful.

So, the club has had a few requests for merchandising and in the past limited runs of things like T-shirts had been arranged as well as stickers and mugs.

As such we’ve decided to take a new route with it all and see if it works a bit better…
show seasons almost upon us ,I should have some more content to post on here then
For the 3rd of our feature cars I’ve gone to a car that in the relatively short time the owner has had it has changed its look almost as much as Shane’s in our last feature!
This time we feature Scott Pickles and see what brought him to the cube and what he’s done with it since he got his hands on it!
So, there is a picture of a cube that pops up with great regularity on the facebook group as new members stumble across it of a good looking cube (although it probably has more to do with the pretty lady!) and so I went on a hunt for the owner to bring you a featured car…
So in a new feature for the web page we’re going to start looking at some owners cars in detail and what brought them to the boxy family. Did they resist or jump in with both feet? Have they a history of standing out from the crowd? Are they a die hard stock fan or do their veins flow with rice and neon? First under the Microscope is our co-contributor Pinion.
