Nissan Sunny (1991-95)

Advantages: Non Descript, rapid, amazing handling, 'Super Car' beater for circa £6000!
Disadvantages: Expensive parts (but how much for Porsche bits?), rare to find a UK model, poor fuel economy
Having a father in the motor trade does have its advantages.
This will just be a short opinion from me on this car. I normally write these in my lunch hour but I'm off out for a ride in this ridiculous car.
I've had it 2 days and I think I have someone to buy it already so minutes spent writing are minutes better spent scaring the crap out of myself.
This Sunny is a 94 'L' and is badged up as a 'Pulsar' (it is an import - I know I've said I hate imports before but this car is an exception) which is what the Sunny was called in Japan. There were about 100 UK spec Pulsars sold over here, they are rare and worth a lot more than the usual circa £5-6 k price tag.
So if you like a car that produces 227 b.h.p from a 2.0 litre 16 valve DOHC engine, a car that has air con as standard, a car that has 4 wheel drive and handles like baby poo sticks to a blanket, then GET A PULSAR!!!
This car is fast, 0-60 in 5.4 seconds (manufacturers estimate) means that you will NEVER be left behind at the lights. I know people will say 'what about Porsches and TVR's?' well, the average porsche driver is 50 ( I said 'average'!!) and does not have lead boots. Also, the average Porsche and all TVR's have only Rear wheel drive to put all their power to the road. The Pulsar wins EVERY time!!
Now I know you will all harp on about 'fuel consumption' and price of parts, but for £6000 I don't give a monkeys! I have got a car (not for long though - hopefully) that can even take on big bikes and not be shame faced!
There are plenty of tuning parts available to make this 'Pocket Rocket' a real Street Racer, maybe one day I'll buy one to keep and see how quick I can get that 0-60 sprint!
If you want a cheap car, that is non-descript (it is after all STILL just a lowly Nissan Sunny!) buy one of these.
I am off out now to pick on some Escort Cosworths
and embarass some TVR drivers. You will recognise me by the HUGE grin on my face and brown stains in my pants!
I will be back soon to write a full review and add how few miles I have managed to get to the Gallon (i'm guessing no more than 15-20 - oh well, you only live once!).
