Junkyard Gem: Nissan Tsuru – Autoblog

do you like Nissan Sentra 1992? If so, you’ll be happy to know that NISSAN build ’92 Sentrawith very little change, throughout 2017 in Mexico. This is Tsuruhas gone through a number of aesthetic and powertrain changes over the years but remains essentially a ’92 Sentra stripped down throughout the entire production run (which makes it cheap but well worth it). it means it One very bad ideas to crash a). Tsuru isn’t sold outside of Mexico in the New World (though there are versions for Africa and the Middle East), but it’s only a 10-hour drive from the Mexican border to Colorado Springs, Colorado… that’s where I found it today. now gem dump.

All the identification badges and build tags were removed from this car long before it got here and it was clear that it was assembled using parts from much different cars. The self-service wreck site where it is currently located is listed as a 1998 wreck Nissan Sentrathat is close enough.

I’m always on the lookout for cars with long mileage on my scrap yard trips (by far, the biggest mileage figures I’ve seen are on a 1990 Volvo 244) and at first glance I thought I had found a 442,689-mile Sentra. Then I noticed the top speed was too high and USAR GASOLINA SIN PLOMO warning (using unleaded gasoline only) and I know I’ve found a car for the Mexican market.

Tsurus is everywhere In MexicoReplaced Air-cooled Volkswagen Beetle is the first choice of cars (and taxis) of the following country 1930s-technology vocho discontinued in 2003.

How old is this car That’s a good question! I found a VIN card on the dashboard that shows the year of manufacture as 1998, so that’s a starting point. However, the grille comes from Tsuru much later, probably mid-2010s.

Then there’s the motor, which is the SOHC unit used in the later Tsurus.

The dash has been glued together from at least three cars and possibly more. This leads me to think that the VIN is the number from any random Juarez taxi that donated the upper dash components. The whole car seems to be Tsuru’s version of Johnny Cash’s famous song. Could be ’92, could be ’17, could be a little every year in between. Steering wheel lock shows that it has drag go because there is an expired Mexican license plate, a borrowed Colorado license plate, or no license plate at all.

Every centimeter of the body was hit, straightened, bulged with fillers, painted, and then rebuffed.

Cars with Mexican license plates are surprisingly popular attractions in Coloradoand it is legal to drive a Mexican (or Canadian) vehicle in the United States within one year of entry. After that year, registration in the US was essentially impossible; you have to go back to the border and re-enter… or give up the car and let the junkyard ecosystem claim it.

This isn’t the first Mexican-market car I’ve found at a bone shop in Colorado. A few years back, I discovered a 2008 Nissan Aprio (a Brazilian-built Dacia Logan), and a 2009 Chevrolet Chevy (made by Mexicans) Opel Corsa) earlier. From Canada, I discovered a 2004 Acura EL (Honda’s motobike Domani aka luxed-up citizen), a 1991 Honda Civic DX car And a 1985 Peugeot 505 Turbo.

¿Donde está mi zapato?

Up inside El Norteit only costs 5 dollars a day for 36 months to lease a new Sentra ’92. It was a highway robbery in addition to the price the Mexicans had to pay for Tsurus later.
