    Saw a metallic blue Micra SV on Saskatchewan Drive in Edmonton yesterday. It had BC plates. The dealers I've talked to say they're selling well here, but this is my first wild siting, and it has BC plates. I'll probably see a Challenger Hellcat in the wild with Alberta plates before I see a Micra with Alberta plates. Because, 'burta

    Funny!

    I'm about to do a bit of highway travel this week, will be keeping my eyes open for more sightings.

    first one I've seen in 3 weeks

    Saw a black S or SR heading east on the 401 just west of Cornwall this afternoon. It was Quebec-plated with the Euro-style MICRA front plate.

    I was headed the other direction coming back from a sailing regatta in Vermont, dead tired in the back seat, and didn't have the time to snap a pic.. or the reflexes!

    I also saw another Micra today - a red S I think it was. At Bayfront Park area in Hamilton. Was visiting family there and walking along the paths when I saw it.

    Cool. I also saw 3 or 4 in Cornwall Nissan... but that doesn't really count.

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

    White SR with tint... what are the odds?

    I haven't seen any others since the one on the highway last week. I see Versa Notes on a pretty regular basis though - stretch Micras, I call 'em.

    Funny thing.. My neighbour has a silver versa. She says I just left my versa in the dryer too long.

    two!

    Round trip to Montreal today, saw none on the way there, or while there. Saw two on the way home though (401/20): one Caspian Sea, the other Red, both S or SV.

    No pics - driving!

    To put that in context, I also saw:
    • about a dozen Fiat 500's,
    • 5 (five!) Chevrolet Volts,
    • and a Tesla Model S electric sedan.
