This is nice. NISMO does its thing with the Note (Versa Note in NA):

My new favorite car site: http://autoblopnik.com/

It's a sendup of car reviews and news, and in some cases it's more of
an inside joke that some people won't get, but it's hilarious. I love
the fake ads ... the "Bick Skruth" is a slap at Jack Baruth, an
American auto journalist who is so full of himself, it's hard to get
him through a door. He also spends a lot of pixels talking about how
he's the only auto writer on the planet who isn't on the take from
automakers (although I've seen him belly up to more than one
automaker-sponsored bar...).

As far as American auto journalists being full of themselves, David E
Davis and Brock Yates set that bar REALLY, spectacularly high. No,
higher than that. When you spend no less than 3 of your monthly columns
in one calendar year going on and on about how you deliberately set out
to fuck up a shitty Ford rental car as badly as you could you've got
issues. (That was Yates by the way.)

I've not read a lot of Yates' stuff, but I definitely know his
reputation.

I met him once, but just a handshake and a how-do.

Davis got a couple of pages in David Halbertsam's The Reckoning where he
did NOT come off well with his views on american car buyers and
journalists and auto execs where he laughed and pointed at the execes
because they liked Blue Nun wine, as if that singular choice defined
their entire life.
