Nissan Guns for the Greys

nissan guns for the greys

With Buick concentrating on the Chinese market, Cadillac going for a younger demographic and the Lincoln Town Car's future uncertain, someone has to take up the slack for us alter kochers. Toyota has a head start with the Avalon, but Nissan's making a move on the geriatric market. TheMatureMarket.co quotes Renault/Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn as he states the obvious: "The average consumer on earth is going to be much older. We know also that usually the purchasing power is with older people. [That means] more money in the hands of the seniors and more seniors on earth." Watch for more Nissans featuring geezer-friendly technology such as backup cameras and perimeter sensors in the near future. Carlos didn't say if his company is working on a way to automatically cancel the turn signal after the car reaches a certain speed on the highway.

    How about a periscope? How many times have I seen a little old lady driving who's eyeballs are barely at hood level? You drive by and all you see is the top of her blue hair in the driver's seat.

    "Thanks for the laugh! Buicks really need this feature." The first car I ever experienced this in was a 1991 Buick LeSabre- sometimes the General really knows thier demographic, pete. But the funniest part of this article is how a Southern-based military guy correctly quoted a Yiddish expression. Farago I understand, but Williams? Good job!
