This car has over $100,000 of parts and work into it, about 1/2 of which was completed under sponsorship, That is the ONLY reason this car is available for sale for such a low price, otherwise the asking price would be significantly higher.

 The one of a kind art seen was completed at the SEMA 2011 auto show & is sure to turn heads. See the YouTube video by searching "mishimoto sharpie car" on google.

  • 7.     Custom Sharpie Art done by Hydro 74 & Zombie Yeti (There is a double clear coat over the sharpie which is UVA&B resistant; good to wash & wax over top of & leave in the sun without fade)

This car was tuner & Dyno’d on a Dyno Dynamics Dynaometer, which reads significantly less than a Dynojet, 25% less even, please take this into consideration when comparing these numbers. 402 WHP & 305 WTQ at a safe 8.25 psi of supercharger boost at redline. This car is built as a race car with the reliability of a daily driver, that was the bottom line with every modification, it would make an exceptional Autocross or Track car with the removable subwoofer.

IMPORTANT:  A $500 USD non-refundable deposit is required upon the end of the auction. This will not be returned if you change your mind or if I do not receive full payment in 2 weeks and as noted below. I made this deposit amount low, so if you want this car, buy it now, pay the deposit and figure out financing, shipping, coming to see it ALL without worrying about another buyer purchasing it before you make a decision.

 Full payment of the remaining balance is within 2 weeks after the end of the auction. You can pay in two ways ONLY:

  • 1.    Cash in person (done at a Wells Fargo Location, you drive car away after)
  • 2.    Cashiers check in the mail (car will only be released to you or shipper after your check clears… This is most typical of online car sales)

In order to assure any suspicious buyers, ANYONE is welcomed to come see the vehicle in person before purchase with or without the deposit, travel arrangements can be coordinated.


I previously had this listed up for sale, however took it off so I could have it for another summer of driving and showing the car. With winter coming around I would really like to sell in order to have money instead of the car. I store the car in a heated storage locker all year round and this is very expensive, as much as I would like to keep this, I cannot afford this storage in addition to my new apartment and other expenses. I barely drive this car and I feel like it could be enjoyed more by someone else.

 Please ask me any questions, there is nothing to hide

Datsun's lackluster initial sales fall below Tata Nano

Wed, 15 Oct 2014

When Tata introduced the Nano back in 2008, everyone was amazed at how cheap it was. They called it a game changer, but no game was changed. In fact, it took Tata five years to sell the 250,000 units it had the capacity to build in a single year. As it turns out, even buyers in what economists call "developing markets" like India aren't necessarily interested in buying an ultra-cheap automobile. And now it appears that Nissan may be falling into the same trap.
A little over a year ago, Nissan revived its old moniker Datsun to serve as a budget brand - similar to what ally Renault did with Dacia. Its lineup (consisting of models like the Go hatchback, Go+ minivan, On-Do sedan and Mi-Do hatch) is largely based on old architecture, packaged with little more than basic equipment and sold at rock-bottom prices. But Bloomberg reports that, even in the brand's core markets like India and Indonesia, the new Datsuns haven't been selling.
According to local industry figures, Datsun has sold fewer than 10,000 units of its $5,100 Go hatchbacks in India since its introduction back in March. Maruti Suzuki, by comparison, sells twice that many of its similarly priced Alto hatchbacks every month. In fact, after peaking in April, Datsun only sold 607 units in India this past July, dipping 77 percent to drop below even the number of Nanos which Tata sold that month.

Chevy City Express headed for dealers

Sat, 25 Oct 2014

With competition coming from the Ford Transit Connect, it's high time Chevrolet got in on the compact hauling action and took the fight to its cross-town rival... and it's doing so with a little help from Nissan. The Chevy City Express, a badge-engineered Nissan NV200, is now arriving at dealers, giving Bowtie fans a counter to Dearborn's compact van.
"Our existing customers will love getting behind the wheel of the City Express when it's at their Chevrolet dealership," Ed Peper, GM's vice president of fleet and commercial vehicles said in a statement. "But we're most looking forward to giving potential new customers the opportunity to experience one of many Chevrolet commercial vehicles that best fit their needs."
Prices for the 2015 City Express start at $22,950. Scroll down for the official announcement from Chevrolet.

2013 Nissan Pathfinder: March 2013

Mon, 01 Apr 2013

Over the past few months, we've talked a lot about how our long-term 2013 Nissan Pathfinder functions as a daily-driver, long-hauler and all-weather warrior. And so far, it's earning high praise from most of us for being a well-rounded, pleasant vehicle in these regards. But the vast majority of people who actually go out and buy a Pathfinder will do so because of its people-and-stuff-carrying abilities. Nissan specifically engineered the new Pathfinder to be a softer, more widely appealing crossover than the sort of rugged SUV that it was before, and in doing so, the company is hoping its new CUV will find homes in the garages of many American families.
We needed to get some family impressions of the new Pathfinder, and fast.
Thing is, many of us Autobloggers live the kid-free life - at least that's true of most of us in the Detroit area where the Pathfinder currently resides. We have no doubts that the Pathfinder will get a proper family road trip workout from west coast editor Michael Harley after it shuffles over to the left side of the country, and it might also do a jaunt to North Carolina this summer with executive editor Chris Paukert and his family before it leaves the area, but in the meantime, we needed to get some family impressions of the new Pathfinder, and fast.
