    This Jalopnik photo made me think of the Mirage

    (...And other relatively low-powered cars I've driven though the years...)

    "The A/C button could be re-labeled as a “Power Subtractor” button and still be accurate"

    It's from an article about Jason Torchinsky's new-to-him JDM crazy-car Nissan Pao.

    Mirage fans will recognize Torchinksy's name from his great response to the NY Times scathing review of the 2014 Mirage CVT.

    He's clearly also an enthusiast for oddball automotive underdogs.

    Funny...but true. Man...that Pao is not a particularly attractive vehicle, is it? But at least it has manual climate control...lol.

    Not attractive. Definitely quirky, though!

    Hey! I like the looks of the Pao. It's definitely my favorite of the Nissan Pike cars. I just read that article last night, with much envy!
