Cute little Nissan novelties were used to build buzz

They may have looked odd, but back in their heyday, the 'concept cars come to life' were revolutionary

Phil Patton / New York Times


Bryan Thompson has a cute little orphan that needs a home.

Thompson, a former Nissan designer who heads design at Next Autoworks, a startup car company, is putting his light blue 1990 Nissan Pao up for adoption.


Until recently, the Pao, a model never sold in the United States, resided in the Datsun Heritage Museum in Murrieta, Calif., southeast of Los Angeles. But the museum has closed and is seeking to relocate, so Thompson plans to sell the distinctive little car or lend it to an auto museum. "I just want the car safe and in good hands," he said.

I will gladly take that car off your hands, Bry!

Now, all I need is a few volunteers to dress up like clowns!
