1986 Nissan Pintara Review
R31 Pintara Gxe — 2lt Twin Spark-Plug CA20E not the most lively engine, but a great workhorse that proves to be an economical steed. Loved this car and wished i had never sold it. Would buy another, The Silver Blue colour is a very complimentary colour to the Squared Lines of the car.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Economical Work-Horse
Cons: Standard R31 Rusting points in upper Bailey Channels.
