Seinfeld

It seems that Jerry Seinfeld feels that car ads these days are less then stellar. In fact ever since he’s been doing “Comedian’s in Cars Getting Coffee”, he’s become very opinionated on the matter. You see, Seinfeld wants to interject a bit of levity into car ads, something that the manufacturers may not appreciate. Personally, I think the man is dead to rights with his thinking. After all, cars should be fun right? So why not project a little when you’re trying to sell them.

Definitive Z: The Limit and Legacy of the Datsun 240Z

Datsun 240Z

One of the best things about the late 1960′s and early 1970′s was that you were still able to order cars in their purest forms. The Datsun 240Z was one such automobile and for many enthusiasts it defined what a sports car truly was. Powered by a torque-y inline-6 with side-draft carburetors the Datsun Z made no bones about what its road mission was. Simply, it was built to go around corners, rev to the moon and produce smile after smile on the faces of their owners.

The MR2 Connection: Petrolicious

Toyota MR2

I saw my first second generation Toyota MR2 in 1989 and upon first glance, had no idea what it was. Ferrari, Lotus perhaps? Then I saw that little Toyota badge and stood there dumbfounded. How did Toyota build a car like this? It was mid-engine, with some of the best body lines I’d ever seen, and it was literally stopping people in their tracks. This was an under appreciated car back then and even still today. Thankfully though Petrolicious was able to find a small group of Texas based owners who still covet these cars the way they should be.

Nissan 370Z

The Nissan 370z is now old. It has dated styling and possesses a wow factor equal to that of a six-day old banana. Sure it’s an okay car, but like the banana it just doesn’t do much for us anymore. Regular Car Reviews not only agrees with us, but they’ve been kind enough to make a video showing us why this sled should be put out to pasture. Check it out after the jump.

Nissan Free Flow

The Nissan IDx NISMO and IDx Freeflow are two concept cars from Nissan that make us wish the world was still filled with Datsun 510s. Nissan calls these two, products of the co-creation product development approach, which lets consumers have input into the cars overall design. Designed to appeal to “digital natives,” or those born after 1990, and integrates their feedback into the creation process. Nissan thinks this approach could have real applications in the near future. Check it out after the jump.
