    Oh boy, 87 pulsar nx was my first car ever. Bought in 2001 with 180K on it, drove it to about 240, replacing maybe a cv joint once? Loved that car to death until it got stolen and crashed just a few blocks from my place

    Moved to Japan, bought a N14 Pulsar 3HB in 2005, probably had 60k or so, only had it a few years until the my ex took it from me in the split.

    Took a small break from Nissans, driving a 93 Integra

    from 08-June 2012, when I crashed it, borrowed a bmw 320 for three weeks until the tranny shitted out, then a late 90's J30 for two weeks until it stopped starting, then a 93 Golf until it melted.

    In November 2012 (FIVE MONTHS FIVE CARS BABY!!!) I bought AN 04 Sentra Spec-V, totaled it in March 2013, bought an 03 Accord Coupe, crashed it ~4 weeks later.

    April 2013 I bought my 02 Sentra Spec-V and have been in love with it since. Told my mechanic I wanted to replace the front of the exhaust with a header, but he pooh-pooed my fears, saying there was no way for ceramic from the cat to trash the cylinders.

    Then it happened.

    I burn about 2L of oil a day right now it is gross.

    But I think she's pretty:

    That is my story.

    I don't have any photos of many of them on this computer, I'll update as I find them.

    she's a 200K mi 1995 Nissan Sentra 200SX SE 1.6 DOHC 5sp

    I've had her about 1500 miles, so far so good
    averaging 35mpg (over 3 tanks)
    most recent tank was 39+ mpg (with the stock wheels and stock sized tires)

    using this little sports car for my 110mi/day commute

    In the late 80's my Mom bought a new Datsun. For the life of me I can't remember what it was, I just remember what it looked like. After that, in the last 10 years I've known people to own an Altima and Sentra. I'm the first owner in my immediate family.

    ^ How many kms on the 1981 when he sold it?? Those old Japanese pickups are becoming collectibles these days.

    My first new car was a 2008 Sentra, still runs. My brother had to fix the transmission recently though, it was a LOT of work for him just to have to replace a $12 seal. Other than that, I am still loving the older car. We sold my husband's '02 Civic last April, and shared 1 vehicle for over a year and a bit. Replaced that with a new Micra.

    My 1st car 1971 Datsun 510, 2nd 1978 Datsun 200SX (looking at pictures on-line a pretty ugly car) & then 3rd 1976 Datsun 280Z.
    I also drove a B210 hatchback automatic as a loaner for a few weeks, when you floored it the engine would rev like crazy but the speed didn't change much.
    My buddy & I rented a Datsun 310 in Maui with a 4 speed that had a very poor shifter. I slammed it once into 1st while going for 3rd at high revs. Ouch! There appeared to be no harm done + it was a rental...
    My sister had a bright orange Datsun 510 4 speed that I taught her (sort of) to drive. It got so bad she just let it sit until she took some "professional" lessons.
    My Mom had a Datsun 710 & much later an Altima.

    Yeah that's the one except mine was dark red with red velour interior.
    I added wide tires & rims which really messed up the handling & caused the tires to rub on the fender wells.
    Thankfully I decided to stop spending money on it & traded it in on a lightly used 280Z.
    Here's a picture of it sitting on the beach at Long Beach Washington.
