Datsun 180B

The other day, at Ocean Park in Kamogawa, Aiko and her team were performing Hula as part of the city's summer attractions and in the car park were a bunch of Datsuns!!! When I was a young fella my Dad had a styling bright orange Datsun 180B (like the one below) which was our family car and the one in which I learned to drive around the farm on at the ripe old age of 9 or so. So many stories and memories, from getting fingers jammed in the doors to overheating on the Auckland highway and all those summer holidays at the beach.Here are the ones that I saw. They're all in immaculate condition and have been lovingly restored to their best. The mighty Datsun lives on!!!
