Photo of the Day: Nissan S-Cargo is Slick as Snail Snot

S Car Go
Based on the Nissan Sunny, the Nissan S-Cargo was a tiny van with more with personality than any other small cargo van – ever. This one was located near the Nissan Tennessee manufacturing plant. The right-hand-drive Nissan S-Cargo came with a 1.5-liter (E15S) four-cylinder engine hooked up to a 3-speed automatic transmission.

Yes, the Nissan S-Cargo was named to approximate the french word escargot (cooked land snails).

This is such a cool van, couldn’t you picture a van like this carrying an upstart rock-n’-roll band, or a cool little catering service? Word has it, the Nissan S-Cargo van was as painfully slow as a… you know. Still, it’s a pity this little van never made it to North America.
