I've often longed for a vintage car but realise with no mechanical experience, the running costs would quickly add up and I wouldn't be sure of its reliability. Hey, I'm sure they were VERY reliable 50 or 60 years ago but all those years would take a toll on anybody.
So in turn, I've also often longed for a modern car with the looks and styling of a vintage car. Little did I know, Nissan had already done just that in the early 1990s. Enter the Nissan Figaro:
Unfortunately, these cute little cars are twenty years old now so I would still be concerned about reliability. They seem to have been very popular indeed when they were released (they needed to have a kind of lottery to allocate the 20,000 produced) so why the heck has no one else done this?
I mean, it just makes sense, almost EVERYONE loves the look of mid century cars.
