Filmmaker Sells 1996 Maxima Back To Nissan, Now Tell Nissan What To Do With It

Follow Richard

No matter how much we love our cars, the time usually comes for most of us to let go, to move on, to put our beloved rides in the hands of someone else.

Or to chunk 'em in the crusher. Whatever works.

Filmmaker Luke Aker was particularly attached to his 1996 Nissan Maxima -- so much so that he created a slick, clever video to help sell it on Craigslist. That clip has been making the rounds the past few days, so there's a good chance you've seen it. (We've posted it above, just in case.)

But what you might've missed is the fact that Nissan loved Aker's ad so much, it bought the Maxima back from him for $1,400.

And what's more: Nissan has asked readers of our sister site, Motor Authority, what to do with the well-worn beast: "Should the Maxima be restored? Donated to charity? Launched across a stadium on a trebuchet? All of the above? Something completely different?"

If you've got a great idea -- or even something not-so-great -- leave it in the comments section of the Motor Authority post, or put it on MA's Facebook page. Nissan assures us that they'll read each and every suggestion, no matter how off-the-wall or hare-brained or physically impossible it may be. We'll let you know which plan of action Nissan takes.
