So we’ve taken a walk down memory lane looking at the history of the cube for our 20th year but we’re going to delve a little deeper now. This is the Nissan Chappo, the 2001 concept car launched at the geneva motor show and the ultimate vision of what the cube was intended to be!
In its artists impression form it is a blend of the Gen 2 and 3 with a square form more rounded at the corners than the Gen 2 but lets take a look at what the built car looked like…
So hopefully you’ve read part one of the life of our lovely boxy beauties but if not take a look here. Now we’ll take a look at how the gen 3 came to being and possibly even find out why it has so many damn cup holders!!!
So, we drive them, we love them but did you know the Nissan cube turns 20 in 2018? We’ve got a few events line up where we’ll be having Birthday celebrations but we thought a little look back at how it all came about would be nice. A bit of a dig around the net and having been sent some Goodies by a club friend at Nissan has given us some gems of things to work with. Now lets take a look at how our quirky little boxes came about from these odd inspirational items and the odd number of people who have threatened to quit over not being taken seriously!
In the last post we looked at how to get a wheel to fit the car when changing them and avoiding scrubbing or clashing with suspension. Once you’ve got those perfect rims your going to need some rubber to wrap them and this article once again steps into Robert Langdon’s shoes in a code deciphering jaunt through tyre description…
Once again there has been a common thread on the various club pages recently, that of wheel fitment on the various cubes. So in this article we will take a look at how to break down the code on the side of the wheel and the way this can be used to get a good fit for your new different diameter wheels.
So lets step into the shoes of Robert Langdon and crack the code….
So we’re not sure how much content is going to go live through this media outlet but the first Nissan Cube Owners club video is going live! check it out below…
let us know what you think and hopefully we’ll be able to do some more as with all these things practice makes perfect and you can see from this….
We definitely need practice!!!!!!
So a new owner popped up on the various club pages and has leapt in with both feet and getting his cube ready for forthcoming club events so I thought I’d grab a few minutes to have a chat and see what brought him to our happy family!
