Karen Ackroyd given keys to new fourth-generation Micra at local dealer in surprise bait-and-switch
When Karen Ackroyd bought her 1987 Micra back in December of 1986, we highly doubt she was anticipating the moment seen in the video above.
Ackroyd was invited to her local Nissan dealership, Alta Nissan, to be interviewed regarding her ownership of the absolutely immaculate 1987 Micra she had owned since new. What happened next was a complete surprise to her.
While she had already planned to replace her aging example with a new Micra, Nissan Canada and Alta Nissan gave her one instead.
Ackroyd’s 1987 Micra was on display during the media launch for the 2015 Micra in Montreal, wearing its name on a licence plate: Baby 1.
