I was driving in South Austin yesterday when, much to my great surprise, I came upon a red early 1990s Nissan 240SX much like the one in this photo. It was showing its age a bit, but the truly surprising part was that it appeared to be... unmodified.

Shocking, I know! Now, I didn't inspect the suspension myself or ask to peek under the hood, but from the outside it appeared to be a stock 240SX. When was the last time you saw one of those?

That's our question of the day: What car is impossible to find in stock form?

I think at some point, the people of the world made a concerted effort to track down every 240SX on the planet, give them an engine swap, lower them, and turn them into a Mad Tyte Drift Car. Nothing wrong with those, of course, unless you're someone who wants to enjoy a 240SX in unmodified form. Good luck with that.

Your turn, what car is a unicorn when it's found to be stock? Let's try not to make this list just Japanese performance cars from the 1990s and early 2000s, either.
