Oddly Bland – 1989 Nissan Maxima

March 26, 2016

Back in the late 1980s, Nissan’s Maxima moved from being a mushy competitor to the “best” GM had to offer, to a car they promoted as the 4DSC or four-door sports car. Gone were the first and second-generation cars’ Toyota Cressida-mimicking styling and talking-car phonograph system, replaced by sportier contemporary styling and an optional 190hp VG30 V6 engine starting in 1991. While the lower-spec (non-SE) cars retained some of the plushness of their predecessors, there was nothing like the tufted pillow-top seats available on earlier cars. With that stunning introduction, let’s take a look at this 1989 Nissan Maxima RHD for sale for $2900 in Broward County, FL.

RHD UKDM No i – 1984 Honda Civic 1500S

January 11, 2016

There’s something fun about driving what looks to be an ordinary car, but with right-hand-drive, in North America. People will expect it to be an ordinary car, so unlike having a right-hand-drive version of something unusual, they won’t look too closely and probably get pretty confused when you get into what they think is the passenger seat. Once you’re past that, though, the older Honda Civics hold up as pretty cool compact cars, more so if you consider one that’s got none of the nasty North American emissions compromises, in addition to sweet 1980s lower-door decals and Mugen wheels. If you want a reliable daily driver that will also throw people for a loop, have a look at this 1984 Honda Civic 1500S for sale for $4500 in Boise, ID.
