    Too funny that we saw the same one. Some poor Micra owner is being stalked.

    Alas, it is mine.

    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.

    Where's Waldo?

    You know how when you get a new car and you start to notice the same model everywhere?

    Within 20 minutes of picking up the SR automatic on loan from Nissan for a week, sitting at a red light I spotted...

    Well, so far I have seen 3 other Micras besides mine in Timmins. One was a white SV, another white one(not sure of model), and the other was a blue S. No pics yet though.

    Perhaps the red Micra driver got a manual and is new to stick shift and maybe hit the clutch thinking it was the brake. Or maybe the driver is a complete tool, yaking on his or her cell phone and not paying attention.

    I finally saw my first Micra in the wild. After passing a Pontiac Bonneville broken down in the passing lane, I moved into that lane and spotted this:

    I was going to, but honking one's horn and making any kind of hand gesture in morning rush-hour traffic on Highway 401 in Toronto is generally frowned upon.
