Head on a Pike: 1989 Nissan Pao

Whenever I find a Nissan Pike car (Pao, S-Cargo, Figaro, Be-1, K10-Micra) I find myself inexplicably writing about the car.  The Pike cars beat the New Beetle, New Mini, PT Cruiser to the retro-style market, but keeping everything in perspective –the old Mini had been retro-styled since about 1970, the Beetle since about 1960.  What was old is now new again…et cetera. Find this 1989 Nissan Pao offered for $9300 in Burlingame, CA via craigslist.
