Original Umbrella: 1991 Nissan Pulsar GTI-R
I live in SoCal, so I need a factory equipped umbrella holder in my car about as much as glovebox full of scorpions…but I am absolutely obsessed with the trick this Pulsar GTI-R has inside the door. What you see is a factory Nissan umbrella that goes in special cavity accessible via the door jam. Sure the car has a SR20DET mated to all-wheel-drive…but that umbrella holder is sick. Would have been better if they put a katana in the door, Yakuza style, but Nissan made some cool cars back in the day. Find this 1991 Nissan Pulsar GTI-R offered for $17,950 in Ferndale, WA via craigslist. Tip from JB1025.

Here’s a somewhat rhetorical question given their track record of poor decision-making, but… why didn’t Nissan sell a version of this in the US back in the day to compete with Honda, Toyota, and VW? They could have used a hatchback in their roster and just added it to the Sentra line. We could have had a Sentra SE-R hatchback to go up against the Si, FX-16, and GTI. Missed opportunity.
Oh man, the want is strong.
I think i got robbed of my tip !
Derp!! Sometimes I want all of the credit for myself!! lemme update.
I know i work for Tips……lol
That interior and engine bay. Butterface.
Does the genius umbrella technology extend to some sort of venting system for that rust optimization compartment? Or is it a plastic tube?
How you gonna drive that? The steering wheel is on the wrong side!
As for the umbrella, many moons ago as a newly gradiated……cough cough ….law student, I worked at an amazing car lot in San Diego. One of the cars for sale was, I think it was a ’55, Dodge La Femme, in freaking perfect condition. IT had the umbrella and not where water would fall into it. It also had a lovely makeup kit and mirror . I would have bought it but I thought the two tone pink color…well…not that theres anything wrong with that of course.
