The term hipster is tossed around as a descriptive or a pejorative — but when applied to goods, there are a few requirements. First, the item needs to be strange or unusual — think Reed’s Ginger Brew instead of Coke/Pepsi, and next the item needs to be overpriced, like a $12 IPA. Therefore, if you were looking for the perfect hipster car, this 1989 Nissan Pao seems to fit the bill, find it on Craigslist offered for $9,400 in Baltimore, MD. Tip from Torrance.
The Nissan Pao was part of Nissan’s Pike series (Be-1, Pao, Figaro and S-Cargo) and was only available in limited quantities for the Japanese domestic market (JDM, YO!). Fortunately, many have found their way onto these shores and are traded regularly in the $5-7k range depending on condition…unless you are a hipster and then you might want to pay $9k for one with some funk on the inside.
However, this is one of only a handful of these things that I’ve seen with a manual gearbox, most seem to have been equipped with the fun-smothering slushbox….so maybe this isn’t as overpriced as I thought.
