RHD Snail Trail: 1989 Nissan S-Cargo

Another day, another cute snail shaped classic oddball Japanese domestic market (JDM) classic on the pages of Daily Turismo.  Why?  Because it's never too late to trade your terrible late model boring crossover lamemobile into an AWESOME piece of automotive history (read about Nissan's Pike cars here).  Stop driving Ford Escapes, Nissan Rogues, Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4, and get yourself into something that'll make people smile!  Find this 1989 Nissan S-Cargo offered for $12,000 in Olympia, WA via craigslist.

  1. Totally cool. Could live with RHD, as this is unlikely to become a daily driver. Too bad about the automatic. I wonder how hard it would be to retrofit a manual from a Micra. However I suppose it might need to be a RHD Micra.... Dang, where is my Unicorn Hunting Kit?

  2. This is what the Citroen 2CV would have looked like if it was designed in Tokyo.

    1. hence the name x-cargo= escargot. and the french called their 2cvs the tin snail.

  3. Needs a ls with a twin snail swap.......for 4.01
