Remembering Japanese cars from the past

DOTS: Nissan 200SX S14 in fall (the end?)

Down on the street on Thursday? Why?
Because it is a sad day for the Nissan 200SX S14 rustoseum:
Nissan 200SX pushing the daisies
Nissan 200SX pushing the daisies

The 200SX passed on! This car is no more! He has ceased to be! The S14 expired and gone to meet his maker! He is a stiff! Bereft of life, he rests in peace! He be pushing up the daisies! HIs metabolic processes are now history! He is off the twig! He’s kicked the bucket, He’s shuffled off ‘is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-CAR!!
* sorry for misuse of the dead parrot sketch *

When I returned to take beautiful fall pictures of the S14 yesterday it had vanished. As you can see the dead leafs even cover the spot where it once stood:
Nothing but dead leafs
Nothing but dead leafs

I checked the RDW (Dutch license plate registration) to see if it was now re-registered by someone else, but its entry has been removed from there meaning it is no longer a valid registration. That can either mean it has been sold off to some foreigner or has ended up at some junkyard. I fear for the latter…

    damn…i think is nostalgia, i remember your first post about the s14 and now is gone…i was expecting a happy ending like someone getting the car to rebuild it or tune it or something like that…

    T_T maybe life is not a happy ending story

    I was thinking about paying the local junkyards a short visit this week and see if it is there…

    Hey Art, a friend of mine who pay a visit to see this car a months ago have called the junkyard in Hilversum and they said last week the car are destroyed already. :(
