First time I ever saw one of these (Nissan Figaro) - an older Japanese import (1991?). Appeared to be missing the console where the radio should have been - other than that, the car was in amazing shape - couldn't believe it was that old. Link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Figaro) to Wikipedia article. Seen in the Huntington Hills Superstore parking lot...

Sorry for the quality of the last pic (sun reflections of the Figaro's windows and used my cell to take the pics) - never the less, the interior was mint. Body was straight, paint was very nice. Did notice one missing signal light indicator in front, but for an almost 20 year old import - quite good shape. Certainly an import you're not gonna see every day.

Saw that car on the road a couple of weeks ago, pretty cool I'd say.... That is a car that would actually be worth importing. I thought it was an old Citroen or something when I saw it, had no clue it was a Nissan. :thumbsup:

I love these cars, they're so comical. They look like they came out of a Pixar movie or something haha.

I know the owner well, he loves that car. It's crazy how good the condition is too!

theres a beyond member who has one, perhaps it's that person? i always thought they looked like they were straight out a cartoon, forgot which one, it was where the car was made out of balloons or something stupid like that.

edit: this member's car (http://forums.beyond.ca/st/213371/1991-nissan-figaro/) , different person i guess since the plate isn't the same.

I believe there is a hatchback version of this car as well in the city, same color.

I've seen this in one of the communities in the SW, there was what looked like an Italian chick driving :poosie:
