A decade ago, Nissan dropped the A33 Maxima on an unsuspecting American public. It was stylish, it was fun to drive (for a front-wheel-drive sedan), and it was fast for its day. But the car sticks in my memory not for these traits...but for the freaking awesome commercials Nissan used to promote it. Even putting aside the great music and the clever ideas...just look at that epic drift across the desert in the first clip. That was hoonage before the word was even popular.
