Nissan's Old California Home
The other day while I was designing a reproduction of the Air conditioning label that came on later year production Z32's I stumbled across a statement that is now somewhat of a time capsule.
"Nissan Motor Corporation in USA, Carson, CA"
Carson? Where's Nissan Carson, CA?
Nissan first laid its root in Carson in the 1960s and was Carson's largest employer until Nissan relocated to Tennessee in 2006. The Nissan campus was a 42-acre property consisted of 13 buildings, with a total of 700,000 square feet of office and light industrial space. Most Notable of the buildings was a nine-story tower, that displayed the Nissan logo.
Even though this building now displays the company logo of the brand TireCo, the old Nissan HQ still draws die hard Nissan Enthusiasts to visit, congregate, and pose their cars.
