Ugliest Nissan Ever Wins Photo Shoot Magazine Cover
It’s hard to believe Nissan produced this car back in 1991 but they did. Now the ugly car from Nissan wins Highway Earth’s photo shoot and makes the cover of their magazine. With so many other cool cars to choose from, we can’t imagine why it would make the cover, but it did.
Why is the car so rare?
It’s a rare pale aqua-colored 1991 Nissan Figaro, It’s one of only 8,000 cars initially made by Nissan’s Pike Factory. What are the ugly little cars worth? They were made in the UK and a quick list of cars for sale says the most expensive used 91’ Figaro sells for 7995 British Pounds ($11,675 US) in the UK. So the two-door minis aren’t all that valuable. Why is Highway Earth so enamored with the little Nissan runabout?
It makes the cover of Highway Earth
We aren’t sure about this either. They picked the Nissan when they had a chance to choose any one of 150 limited entrants for the “highly anticipated” car show in LA on June 26. It’s held along the 1.2-mile lake at Franklin Canyon Park (2600 Franklin Canyon Dr.) in Beverly Hills. It’s the third annual Highway Earth Classic Car Show.
Get this, one of the cars at the show is a cool Pantera originally owned by Elvis Presley. Legend has it that the vehicle’s steering wheel still retains bullet holes acquired through Presley’s frustration when the vehicle would not start and he pulled out his revolver and shot it! Now that would be the vehicle for the cover a magazine.
Highway Earth founder Evan Klein says, “We’re proud to showcase the creativity and innovation of the car world of SoCal.” We can’t imagine why Southern Californians would be excited to see a pale aqua-colored 1991 Nissan Figaro built in the UK. And be on the cover of a magazine? Only in the land of fruits and nuts.
