Paris, Hawaii, Las Vegas, a Mediterranean cruise, the scene of your first date and that heinously expensive restaurant – these are legendary places to propose. And now you can add Nissan's Proving Grounds in Stanfield, Arizona to that list.

Nissan has put five members of its Facebook fan club into the 2013 Altima for "upgraded" test drives as part of a series called "The Altima Experience." One of those fans, Paul, wrote in to say that his girlfriend, Jane, loves the way the Altima drives, and Paul pledged to propose to her at the track if he got the chance to be one of the first to drive the new model.

The confetti and the string quartet didn't go to waste. To see how they got to that point, check out the video below.

      Why don't you H8ters stop hating on them ! I thought the proposal was great and very touching , very original and why can't you people be happy for them instead of downing them about their weight . You people disgust me , always negative and rude! Get a life ... Congrats you two !!

        I'm not negative or rude, I think it was a neat way to propose. The only thing I saw that I didn't like was that Jane was in the back seat instead of up front beside Paul (or better yet, Jane driving). Might have been a Nissan requirement that the Nissan representative couldn't be in the back. If Nissan wouldn't let them both be up front, I'd have put Paul in the back and Jane at the wheel. If Nissan just happens to give them a new Altima for a wedding present in exchange for all the good press, she will be the one driving it anyway. (I've been married for 28 years, I know how this marriage thing works).

      Ultimate proposal machine, huh? Sounds like reason enough for me to never ever set foot in one. "Oh look, two more overweight, out of shape people have paired up and will now lead an even more sedentary lifestyle where their muscles will get even LESS defined, their waistlines will get even larger, and they'll pump out some equally unhealthy children. Hooray...?" Haha! Monogamy... what a waste. Well, not quite as much of a waste when the people look like this though. :) And no, I don't care if you downvote me for this comment. People like this are just gross to me. I watch my diet and work out consistently for a reason. And a big part of that is to NOT end up looking like this.

          Same thought here...he gives zero thought to their character which is unknown to him...but condemns them because they don't LOOK like him. It's a shame you can vote, really. "Mean-spirited" is right. I'll take their friendship over yours any day there Mr. GQ.

        It sounds like you live a pretty pathetic lonely life. I work out often, but I feel sorry for you, I honestly do.

          That may very well be the case later in life, but definitely not the case now. In fact, I am someone that tends to be the type to avoid monogamous relationships at all costs. Not saying I haven't been in a few long-term relationships in the past. I simply prefer the short-term ones, haha! And this is coming from someone whose parents have been happily married for the last 33 and a half years, so I know what that's all about, I just have no interest in it. This is also a point I make known to ANY woman I start "seeing," yet they never seem to heed my warnings and end up getting hurt once they get more attached and I completely lose interest. What you call "pathetic and lonely" I call having options. :) Oh yeah, and one thing to keep in mind with all of this, I live in a pretty densely populated area on Florida's Gulf Coast, so it's not like there isn't a constant rotation of attractive women to choose from to spend time with. If that were to change though, I'm sure my mentality would have to change, since the options wouldn't be as prevalent. I know that from experience when I was in school in Michigan. Woof!

        Wow...I'm glad you have nothing better to do with yourself than worry about counting calories and hitting the gym. Someone as shallow and superficial as yourself will no doubt be blissfully alone or find someone with an equally crappy personality. I hope you realize just how many health issues can cause someone to be overweight and that you never develop said health issues, since you will then be even more pathetic and a larger waste of space. Maybe you should think before you speak next time, seeing as how there could be many more explanations for the fact that they are not skin and bones (aside from the fact that that's not always attractive to everyone). Seems like they are far more secure about themselves than you are Mr. Bynum....

      Wow, If a guy ever proposed to me in front of an Altima, I would be truly embarrassed and would run before I even get a chance to see the puny ring. Now if it was an S-Class or 7-Series or preferably a Phantom, then he would get married on spot.

        So it's not the fact that it was a really cheesy publicity stunt marriage, it's the fact that the car simply wasn't "baller" enough for your high-class standards. What a money-hungry little gold-digger you are.

        That's the spirit, marry for money and looks! And I'm sure in 10-15 years when your body starts to look like a chubby Nissan Altima, you're lucky fella will start to look around for a nice S-Class again too.

          Tina, money will get you far in the world indeed. But the problem is you're not the one in control of the money. Rich guys tend to tire of their toys, and will only be interested in the newest and the youngest. If you're entire relationship is based on materials, at some point you will be old and damaged goods. Then you'll have to settle for some hood-rat driving a rusted out 20 year old Lexus.

          Why not, money buys Birkins and looks can/will get you far in this world. A "great personality" cannot buy a Benz or a Birkin. I could never date a middle classed guy. Sorry, my preference. Money may not be able to buy happiness, but it sure as hell can make up for that with a three pointed star.

          ...or just never get married at all. Why do so many people feel that marriage is some sort of a "requirement" in life?

          it goes both ways. I hope you're good looking, tina, because rich guys won't look at ordinary girls, no matter how much you want to date them. Well, actually, old ugly rich guys would, and they'd have an ironclad prenup.
