We're All Fools For Not Buying This Dirt Cheap 47,000 Mile Nissan Pickup

We're All Fools For Not Buying This Dirt Cheap 47,000 Mile Nissan Pickup

I realize people are concerned with little things like “retirement funds” and “layoffs,” but don’t let those small worries make you lose sight of what’s really important in this world. Specifically, I’m referring to this amazing, manual-transmission, 4x4, 47,000 mile 1986 Nissan Pickup. It’s a former racetrack service truck, and its “coolness-to-dollar ratio” gauge is pegged to max.

Nissan Claims The Qashqai Created The Crossover Segment, Is Wrong
Truck Yeah The trucks are good!

Nissan has upgraded its Sunderland, UK factory in the face of upcoming refresh of its Qashqai crossover. The news is not only remarkable because it’s about investing in the UK even after Brexit, but because the press release from Nissan contains this line:

The first specially commissioned panels on the press were produced today at an official ceremony, led by...

Nissan Somehow Manages To Screw Up Taking Pictures Of People Next To A GT-R

Nissan Somehow Manages To Screw Up Taking Pictures Of People Next To A GT-R

There’s a certain baffling quality about this story that somehow fits with the current state of Nissan, a certain heady mix of baffling drama and a line of cars that feels like it has been ignored for years. In this case, the setting is the Chicago Auto Show, and the car is a lovely blue GT-R, and the baffling part is a virtual, computer-generated GT-R. This is weird, but I’ll explain...

Nissan's CEO Is Going All In

Nissan's CEO Is Going All In

Nissan has a new-ish CEO in Makoto Uchida , who is trying to clean up the mess left behind in the wake of former CEO Carlos Ghosn’s completely inconspicuous departure . Uchida told shareholders Tuesday that if he couldn’t turn things around, “you can fire me immediately,” in a meeting The Wall Street Journal described as “rowdy.”

“Rowdy” is a word my late grandfather still had in circulation...

I Found The Remnants Of A Rare Nissan Pao In Hong Kong But Removing Parts Was A Nightmare

I Found The Remnants Of A Rare Nissan Pao In Hong Kong But Removing Parts Was A Nightmare

“Is that what I think it is?” I stuttered as I peeked into the thin slit that is the Nissan Pao ’s door pocket. I had discovered the rare, junked car on the side of a road in Hong Kong, and decided to buy some parts off of it for my coworker Jason. This required climbing into the vehicle, which was overgrown with shrubs and, as I’d later find out, housing a critter straight out of my...

I Went To Hong Kong And Discovered The Weirdest Homemade Pickup Truck Ever

I Went To Hong Kong And Discovered The Weirdest Homemade Pickup Truck Ever

When I visit my brother in Hong Kong, he and I always find incredible Japanese cars often sitting abandoned on the side of the road . But last week, we spotted something different in front of a junkyard. It was a rare Nissan Pao that someone, for whatever reason, hacked up and turned into a pickup truck. Just look at this absurdity.

My brother, who runs the Instagram page carsofhongkong, has...

Experience What Van Time Was Like In 1987 With MotorWeek

Experience What Van Time Was Like In 1987 With MotorWeek

I see right-hand-drive Japanese market vans nearly every day here in New York City and it makes a lot of sense to me. For the slight inconvenience of driving on the right, you get a practical, often all-wheel-drive shape that’s maneuverable in town. But while that seems to work for these New Yorkers, MotorWeek wasn’t quite convinced back in 1987.

This head-to-head test is between the Nissan...

Here's A New Rumor About The Supposed Next-Generation Nissan Z

Here's A New Rumor About The Supposed Next-Generation Nissan Z

Roughly 160 million years ago, dinosaurs and the Nissan 370Z roamed the Earth together, in harmony. The dinosaurs have since died out, but the 370Z persevered. But its time might soon also be drawing to a close. New rumors have emerged about its successor, which I’m still personally doubtful will actually happen. But I digress!

Nissan, apparently, is working on the next-generation Z car and it...
