As you may remember, I recently sold my Nissan S-Cargo to the owner of a pizza restaurant in northeastern Kansas so he could use it as a pizza-delivery vehicle. The restaurant is called AJ's NY Pizzeria, and the owner recently sent me some photos of exactly what the S-Cargo looks like now, in its second life, delivering pizzas.

For those of you who don't remember my S-Cargo escapades, allow me to refresh your memory: I bought the S-Cargo at the end of last year, simply because it was so ridiculous. It was shaped like a snail and it was a cargo van, so Nissan referred to it as the "S-Cargo" -- a play on "escargot," the French word for "snail." This was absolutely hilarious, and so was the design of the S-Cargo, which everyone thought was quite humorous.

Unfortunately, nobody really clicked on any of the columns I wrote about the S-Cargo, or the videos I made with it, so I parted with it sooner than I expected -- and it found its way to Kansas, where it's been delivering pizzas ever since. I personally think it looks quite nice in its new pizza-delivery guise, and I strongly suspect its absolutely bizarre design is a wonderful bit of rolling marketing for AJ's.

On a personal level, selling my Nissan S-Cargo to Kansas was a bit odd because in 2015, I sold my imported Nissan Skyline GT-R to a guy in Kansas. Basically, I exist just to a) write articles on Oversteer, b) make stupid YouTube videos and c) pump imported Nissans into Kansas. I strongly suspect that if you went and tallied the numbers on who sold the most imported Nissans into Kansas during the last few years, "Doug DeMuro" would be number one.

Anyway, the S-Cargo now lives its pizza-delivery life, and occasionally I'm delighted when someone who follows me on Twitter goes to AJ's for a meal and sends me an image of my old S-Cargo doing what it was meant to do: carrying stuff and making people smile. Very, very slowly.
