    In 1991 Nissan jumped into the Retro styling venue that had just created a fervor with the 'New Beetle'. Auto Enthusiasts were hungry for cars that looked like the classics they grew up with, but wanted updated power, handling, performance and electronics. The retro city car of the Figaro has the far gone styling of the Japanese cars of the 50s. With a nod to Japan's connection to nature - the little matchbox commuter is painted in four shades representing each of the seasons; Topaz Mist (Autumn), Emerald Green (Spring), Pale Aqua (Summer) and Lapis Grey (Winter).

    Sitting about the same wheel base size as the Fiat 500, the Figaro moved from concept care to production with plans for only 8,000 units, but was increased to 12,000 units in order to satisfy demand. The car proved so popular that Nissan held a lottery to determine prospective buyers.

    The 1950s-inspired brings todays' features of air conditioning, power windows, locks and automatic transmission. They were not imported into the US - so if you find them, they will all be spec'd with a right hand drive. But with an auto - it should lower the difficulty of adapting to sitting on the 'wrong' side for the Yanks that manage to get a hold of one. Getting down the road is done by a fuel injected 1.0 Liter Turbo motor.

    The roof on the curio auto is a sliding canvas targa with a full glass window. The center of the roof slide back opening up the sky but keeps the wind noise down, and still keeping more body rigidity than standard convertibles.

    I remember seeing this in the Motor Magazines when it hit the show circuit. It is a great foot print for getting around the city. Although there are 4 seating places in little coupe, the back seats are mostly decorative. It reminds me of the impish Nash Metropolitan from America's motoring history.

    The perfect bachelor pad for a moto-head. 1000 sq ft apt, with a 3 stall 1000 sq ft garage. I would add a deck a full deck across the front coupled to a full sliding door to allow for a deck outdoor kitchen. The closet needs to go - Give me more room for a big tub; move the laundry down to the garage region - as that is where I land when I am muddy, sweaty, and dirty; give me a large pantry. Pitch in a good kitchen island - and ta-da; chez Boria Brian McKenzie

    Hot Rod Music - Bruce Springsteen - Pink Cadillac

    I love you for your pink Cadillac
    Crushed velvet seats
    Riding in the back
    Oozing down the street
    Waving to the girls
    Feeling out of sight
    Spending all my money
    On a Saturday night
    Honey I just wonder what you do there in the back
    Of your pink Cadillac
    Pink Cadillac

    Well now way back in the Bible
    Temptations always come along
    There's always somebody tempting
    Somebody into doing something they know is wrong
    Well they tempt you, man, with silver
    And they tempt you, sir, with gold
    And they tempt you with the pleasure
    That the flesh does surely hold
    They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple
    But man I ain't going for that
    I know it was her pink Cadillac
    Crushed velvet seats
    Riding in the back
    Oozing down the street
    Waving to the girls
    Feeling out of sight
    Spending all my money
    On a Saturday night
    Honey I just wonder what it feels like in the back
    Of your pink Cadillac
    Pink Cadillac

    Now some folks say it's too big
    And uses too much gas
    Some folks say it's too old
    And that it goes too fast
    But my love is bigger than a Honda
    Yeah, it's bigger than a Subaru
    Hey man there's only one thing
    And one car that will do
    Anyway we don't have to drive it
    Honey we can park it out in back
    And have a party in your pink Cadillac
    Crushed velvet seats
    Riding in the back
    Oozing down the street
    Waving to the girls
    Feeling out of sight
    Spending all my money on a Saturday night

    Hot rod Music - Stray Cats - Look at that Cadillac

    If you gotta roll down the avenue - drop top Caddy is the epitome of acres of hood and style.

    Renowned vehicle stylist Rick Dore created his dream car 'Kashmir' out of a 1952 Cadillac; heavily customizing the long sled with both traditional styling while bringing moder components to the ride. Starting with a 2 door coup, Rick stripped it to bare metal and then cut the top, molding in a custom windshield. The car is powered by a late model Chevy 350 Corvette motor with a Turbo Auto Transmission; all coupled to a Nova subframe.

    Up front the fog lamps were removed, the bumber was sucked in closer to the body and the headlights were frenched. The stylish side skirts were created and grafted onto the stock quarter panels in pure surgical steel excellence. The car looks like it might have been a concept car destined to support the GM AutoRama shows of the 50's. A custom hue of light baby blue really makes the Caddy stand out. The color was a match from an Italian shawl that Rick found in Venice; the garment tag was branded 'Kashmir' - and thus the name and color of this nouveau 50's Classic.

    Aces & 8's - the Dead Man's hand.

    The dead man's hand is described as a two-pair poker hand consisting of the black aces and black eights. Along with an unknown "hole" card, these were the cards reportedly held by "Old West" folk hero, lawman and gunfighter, Wild Bill Hickok when he was murdered.

    In Hot Rod Culture, both for custom cars and among bikers - this is the 'I don't give a f*ck' statement. It means you hold life in little regard and are only living from one thrill to the next; and if death comes knocking on the door step - so f'n be it. It is not a suicide cult - it is just a full does of indifference from the returning Vets of WWII that - "I just don't care, I have lived through combat - what the Hell else could you throw at us? We are gonna run our rides fast, hard, dangerous and without regard to law, society, or civility." An honesty that would clearly send the PC masses to their safe places today.

    This is how I grew up. Wrenchin on rides, makin shine, running dirty (rollin without a license or headlights) and always out on the fringe; but never a member of a club or gang. As Groucho Marx famously said, “I don’t want to belong to any club that would accept me as one of its members.”

    I was never arrested - but my Grandfather was certain, leading the life I was creating - I would end up dead, in prison, or in the military....... The next day - he had my sleep but down at the Military Processing Center to join the Navy. You don't say NO to a WWII Salty Senior Chief - you just don't. I stepped into boot camp at the age of 16 - and never looked back at my old life. Indeed, many of the kids I ran with were jailed, murdered, died of overdoses or catastrophic car/moto accidents.
