1986 Nissan Hardbody Pickup 2.4 4 cylinder
The perfect teenager's first car
Since I just got this wonderful truck, only a few things have happened - the fuel pump needed to be replaced, the timing, and the fan for the AC.
My goodness, this truck is a wonderful first car. I bought it last June from a shadetree mechanic who had put on new wheels, slight lowering job, new shiny red paint job, and custom made seats.
In addition it a very safe car, some dude went through a red light while I was going 50mph, I had to swerve into the other lane, and a girl hit me right in the tailgate, the entire front left side of her car was smashed in, it was totaled. My trusty Nissan's tailgate still works, and has a mild dent/scratch, I also found a piece of her bumper in my exhaust! This truck is built like anx.
Perhaps the coolest thing about this truck is that it is pretty quick and packs a pretty good punch, spinning the tires in first gear is very satisying. A tip for you other kids out there, 3rd gear has a lot of power, if you're racing a friend, get it in third at about 35 MPH, keep it there till about 50, you'll get to 50 really fast. It's a rush.
Simply put, I love my truck, it's trusty, safe, and great for pulling some donuts in the school parking lot. I have named my truck Shilow.
The horn is great
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had the same truck, and I loved it too. I would probably still have it if it didn't get totaled by some goof who hit it while it was parked in the driveway. The best thing about this truck is it was a four cylinder, but it had 8 spark plugs this thing would scream. I loved my Nissan.

You really can run these trucks hard; the body will usually go before anything else.
Plus, what’s better than seeing a little Nissan Hardbody truck jet past a “tuner” car?
I usually go by this for the max speed for gears:
