If there were ever a sign of these troubled times in the automobile industry, this is it. The photo you're looking at was taken recently at Nissan Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd, the largest car plant in the United Kingdom and the most productive in Europe. Well, it may be productive, but with supply outpacing demand, Nissan has apparently been left with too much stock. The factory's parking lots are overfilled, so they've begun parking cars on the facility's test track. Of course, that means Nissan can't use the track to test new cars, but if nobody's buying them, that ought to be the least of their worries. Click on the image above to view in full. Thanks to Hammad for the tip.
