Maybe I’ve been spending too much time looking for used cars, but while trying to find suitable competitors in today’s Used Car Face-Off, I stumbled across this little Japanese immigrant into the United States...

Yes, it’s a Nissan Pao! It looks legal considering the age requirement as well as the seller who seems to be a legitimate source of JDM metal here in the states. However, $6K is a lot for a little, retro Nissan March/Micra with a carbureted 1.0L I4 (the ad is slightly wrong) producing in the vicinity of 51 hp. Add that to the 3 speed auto and progress is going to be very slow indeed. Is worth the snail pace for the prospect of owning what is a very unique car that will likely become a collectors’ curiosity in the future?
