My Car
Printed by Nissan Australia during the late 1980s and 1990s, it was mailed out to all new Nissan owners during their first 3 years of ownership. It is mostly a big blab about how good they think their plasticy new cars are, but it often has items about older (real) cars. It has run a nice article about a Silvia CSP311 and they were running a contest for a while looking for Australia's oldest Nissan.
