I first saw a Nissan Figaro a few years ago in London. It stopped me in my tracks as I pondered, "New car? Old car?" It looks like it zipped straight out of the '60s, but it was produced for the Japanese market in 1991. Only 20,000 were built, and now they're coveted in Asia and the U.K. I'm not usually drawn to pastels, but these are undeniably cute in cornflower blue, pistachio, pale pink, and cappuccino. I haven't found one for sale in the U.S., but there's always eBay Motors U.K. Here's a thorough post on Car Lust.
