This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. Since it's Maximum Minivan Day, we need a Maximum Minivan Down On The Street Bonus Edition. This mysterious Nissan vannish wagon (or wagonish van) was spotted in Austin by Schnog; his theory is that we're looking at a Mexican-market Tsuru wagon. Make the jump for the rest of the story.


What is the age cutoff for DOTS? While it may not be old, it deserves a look for sheer lost-a-bet-in-the-womb homleyness. I spotted this odd creature in the wilds of Austin Texas today, and I'm thinking third generation Nissan Tsuru, wagon, manufactured in Mexico, of course. I've never even seen one in Mexico. Note the Texas plates, so someone loved this little monster enough to import the thing. Points for the Pomegranate orange paintjob and the 'Fear This' sticker right above the Department of Public Safety (Texas State Police) booster sticker. I'm thinking repainted white with a 2.0 L SR20DE I4 engine, lowered 2' on 17''s, a surfboard permanently attached to the roof, with a girl you met last night in the passenger seat and a bag of mescaline in the center console.
