Stagea ? It's a sort of Skyline station wagon, this 2005 has a familiar V6, earlier models had an RB25, some like my neighbours are AWD. Earlier models very much like a Volvo 850 station wagon. My neighbours was the same colour as my Volvo....I'd see the roof go past from my lounge window ''Hey, there goes my car !!!!'' I'd race outside, and there would be my car in it's usual place.

Going from the Fergy to this, I can see why I'm not interested in working on modern cars these days. these rocker cover gaskets were never intended to be replaced.

Pretty clean for an old Japanese import. There's a few Stagea's around my area, reckon they would have sold well if Nissan had officially imported them. Didn't know they came with a V6, thought they were all RB engines.

Well, concurrent with Skylines, so a 2005 Skyline has the VQ35 V6.

That looks awesome. Not my favorite color, but I'd drive the heck outta that thing.
