I guess it's the same for the Nissan van.
Mac,

That's one way of looking at it...

Nissan is able to sell Cubes and some other ugly cars as well...Maybe we just don't see it?
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder..Who knows, there may be someone out there that thinks 92 up Econolines are ugly too..

I know I could not drive something that I thought was ugly every time I walked up to it...
But people did buy Pontiac Aztecs...

Remeber, the bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Wonder how they felt 2 years later when they were still making payments?

Re: Sportsmobile posts photo of 2011 Nissan Conversion

Hi All.

This is my first post. And I'm ready to get slammed (and probably excommunicated) by all the purists.

I sold our Sprinter Westfalia and purchased this Nissan six weeks ago - see photo - and up to this point, I'm extremely happy with it. It fits our needs perfectly and so far has performed flawlessly. I'll update my evolving impression as I test the limits of the van.

Let the flogging begin...

Re: Sportsmobile posts photo of 2011 Nissan Conversion

WELCOME!

It takes some big cojones to come here and post pics of your Nissan SMB after all the bashing that's already gone on.

I do think you posted the best angled shot of a Nissan SMB. Doesn't look so bad from that angle. Hey, I don't even own an SMB anymore, so feel free to slam me. It all comes down to what any SMB owner is going to use their rig for, and there are different solutions to everyone's situation. Just be happy that Nissan doesn't offer theirs with a diesel engine, or we'd have a whole 'nother flail going on.

Would actually like to see more pics, especially of the inside.

Now we'll have to see if Jage comes up with a Nissan SMB icon.

Welcome, myself I don't think the PH models like yours are that bad looking at all. Any SMB with their top popped are a bit funny looking IMO. Each has their own tastes, mine just happens to be for a lifted 4x4. Actually I'd like to see more pics of your vehicle. The wheels set it off well along with the shinny black paint job.

Wow, sorry we gave you that impression. I know this forum is biased to large, lifted 4X4's but the funny thing is when you get a group of us together none of those things matter. I've bashed the Nissan but that doesn't mean they suck, i'm just another a-hole with an opinion.

I remember how many of my friends hated the last Dodge Ram update (early 90's?) with the "funky fenders" and "hideous hood".

Now they all drive them and think SD Fords are ugly.

This too shall pass...

I still haven't gotten (fully) used to the front end of the newest Ford SDs. I did figure out what really bugged me on the Ford front end (08+ or whenever it was). The turn signals are above the headlights. It always looks like they put the front light assemblies on upside down. In later years Ford made it far less noticeable because the put clear lenses on both.

Re: Sportsmobile posts photo of 2011 Nissan Conversion

Welcome Warehouse! Great to have a Nissan owner on board. I too would like to see more pictures, particularly of the inside. I also would like to see a picture with someone standing next to the van. I'd also like to see people inside the van. I'm having a hard time getting a perspective of this thing. I agree that the low top looks better than the high top. That high top is the Snoopy-head looking thing. Your rig doesn't look bad.

Hopefully you can bring your rig to a SMB meet and greet so we can meet you and see your rig. Maybe I need to coordinate another get together. We had 28 rigs at the last one.
