New 1968 model, available today

This Nissan B140 pickup is sold in Nairobi, brand-new. I think it was originally released to the Japanese market in the late 60s. This model has some improvements (like a more modern engine, though I'm not even sure this one comes with emissions controls). But essentially it's the same truck.

Part of the appeal is the price: about $9,500. And I think the appeal to Nissan is using the molding for that model without having to scrap it. And to be honest, it's a basic vehicle and must be easier to work on compared to more modern vehicles. But this could be another case of the developing world getting the cast-offs from the rest of the world.

I just noticed the ad's headline; it could be interpreted, "This Nissan Model will be Sold Forever!"

You are as old as this car! But I'm sure you both look better than it does.

Heather doesn't blog. She is too busy keeping up with our 3 kids & doing some work at the office too.

She does like to discourage me from blogging a bit. (Like, "You're on the Mac again this evening?!")
