When I was in Mexico I would only flag down Nissan Tsuru taxi cabs. I couldn’t speak the language, but I felt a bond with the driver that chose such a pure and simple car. Nissan will soon cease production of the Tsuru, aka the Sentra from the early 1990s, due to growing criticism about its safety.

Earlier this month local news in Mexico said a woman’s 1991 Nissan pickup truck was stolen at a gas station in Hermosillo. She posted this hand-scribbled picture to Facebook which was immediately turned into a meme. It’s kind of mean, kind of funny but hey, she did end up getting her truck back!
