• I remember reading that Gordon Murray's daily driver was at one point a Renault Kangoo, and I've flogged similar around Continental backroads and if something of that ilk a little more flavorful than an Otto-motor Ford Transit Connect got to this country I might be tempted, but…not RHD, sorry.

  • Renault Kangaroo? Must have been after his Honda NSX. Ever driven a RHD here in the states? Don't knock it unless you've tried it. Unless you get multiple coffees a day, or it's some wide full size vintage iron, RHD in these narrow little cars is easy. Don't be so easy to shoot yourself in the foot. I vote sweet ride on the S-Cargo. Now to find some cash…

    • I'll take a swing at it: I've driven an RHD car in an LHD country (R32 Skyline, Germany). Save for the occasional weekend trip across the border or into any other place with toll style booths, parking garages/gated entrances, it wasn't too bad.

      I even toyed with the idea of buying an ex MOD (RHD) Series Land Rover here in the US until I rode with a friend of mine for a week in his RHD Civic (swapped) and realized how much of a PITA it was in a place that has toll booths, fast food, parking gates, ATMs, pharmacies, car washes (etc).

      Of course this didn't stop me from having a brief fling with a rural mail carrier XJ for a few months… but that was basically in the middle of the Ozarks, not too many parking gates or toll booths out there.

    • Renault Kangoo is correct (not Kangaroo). I've driven a Kangoo; had one as a rental in France for a week. Absolute worst car I've ever driven. It was nearly new and felt like a worn-out 30 year old delivery van on the highway.

  • "Nissan's Pike cars beat the New Beetle, New Mini, PT Cruiser to the retro-style market": True. They were ahead of their time at being retro. Only problem was that there was no classic Nissan (or Datsun) equivalent of the Beetle, Mini, or T-bird to replicate. Their current offerings are bland. Even the GT-R and 370Z. Even though everyone hates it, they at least showed their mettle with the Cube.
