Yep, number one, but after they fixed their design he he he. Sometimes they actually have a function no matter how small they are, amazing what difference that made.

Spent part of last week in Charlotte, NC. I forget that for a smallish city there are a lot of people with a lot of money (2 professional sports franchises, NASCAR, and tons of commercial banking).

Saw more Bentley's, Aston Martins, and high end Mercs, BMWs, etc then expected!

Rich. Dark. Deeply satisfying.

Yes, many RHD cars are found up here. Skylines (coupes and sedans), Sylvias, Pulsar, Fairlady, a '92-'95 Civic hatch (why bother ?!?), Carol, Figaro, Cappucino...

To the point that the Quebec gvt has put in "quarantine" all RHD cars imported after April 29th for a 6-month period, to study the safety implication of right-hand side steering. I imagine that if most RHD cars weren't associated with a performance image, this would not have happened Rolling Eyes

I bet that those Citroen 2CV we see in the Plateau are safer in a crash ...

Interesting. As a tyke, I lived in a country where driving was on the left side of the road. My father had a '70 Chevy Malibu (made in Canada) which was LHD. Generally speaking it was ok but overtaking other cars was out of the question.

I have not heard of the Nissan Figaro until this thread. Did a google search and it is a nice looking cool little car. Looks like a lot of fun to drive.

Right around the corner from my office, there's one parked in a private spot on sunny days. When it rains, the guy takes his also-current 911 instead. Decisions, decisions...

The 911 would be his awd snow/bad weather car?

I'll have to check what's parked there next winter. I'm in no hurry, though Smile . He / she has taste, though : F430 is the same colour as my Sentra ! 911, plain white daily driver.

Last week - Ferrari F430 (red and driven by a young blonde - are they re-making National Lampoon's Vacation[/i]?) on a backroad where it truly looked out of place.

Last night at the gas station the adjacent pump was occupied by a bright red GT-R. My son wanted to get out and look at it and the driver was cool about it. Told DS that if he "stayed in school and worked hard he could get his own." DS (age 4.5) took all of this advice in very seriously Very Happy

Rich. Dark. Deeply satisfying.

In the land of Ferrari's, Lambo's, Maybachs, Aston Martins, Bentleys, Rolls, one Veyron, one Carrera GT and where 911's are commonplace, I have yet to see a GT-R in the flesh.
