    Not Exactly Micra... Nissan restores jokester's old Maxima

    ...but remember that old blue Micra owned by the lady from Woodbridge...the one they replaced with a new Micra for free? Should get the same treatment I say!

    That's a good story - I saw it yesterday too.

    Actually I remember watching his original Maxima spoof ad:



    And kudos to Nissan for having a sense of humour in their response...

    Well, the story goes that Nissan actually did buy the guy's old Maxima. I wonder how much they gave him...

    The joke Maxima "commercial" also reminded me of this joke K-car commercial.

    I bet Chrysler wasn't smart enough to buy it off this guy and turn it into a PR victory!

    That would have been the least of their mistakes.



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