    Scary new Datsun:





    It's called the "Juke".



    I think they misspelled "Joke".

    Seriously, don't the marketing guys vet these names anymore? That one's just too easy. Easiest name parody since the Mercury Mistake.

    I certainly like the style - chunky, cobby, good proportions - if it goes as good as it looks I would like one.

    Good proportions? The cabin looks stunted next to the huge exaggerated haunches. It looks like a rolling homunculus.

    Similar, but not as toothsome!

    Shaved, or just hidden in the pillar?
