After graduating college, a friend and I drove around the U.S. and back through Canada in my Dad's VW bus (started in DE). It was just plain wonderful -- loved it.boxcarwillie said:The over all vibe of owning and driving a cube reminds me of what it must have been like back in the late 60's or early 70's driving a VW Beetle or VW Van. Only This is way better because it is a Nissan not a VW! People who drive Cubes have good Karma!
Bug collection properties were phenomenal (entire front became encrusted), but it was just such an incredibly good touring vehicle -- not much on speed, not great in crosswinds, but wall-to-wall space for camping gear and sleeping bags, and a plucky high torque engine and 4-speed tranny that just kept going -- mountains et. al. !
