1971 Datsun 1200 Sedan? 1.2
High revving fun for youngsters
Wear and tear and the odd ding.
I worked for a local newspaper outfit selling ads. There was a team of lads like me, all in our early twenties.
We soon discovered that these unbreakable little Japanese masterpieces babies could spin, slide and drift, all while revving their heads off. To say they were highly chuckable and hugely thrashable would be an understatement.
They felt like dodgem cars. We hit things from time to time, and the company mechanic used to give us grief, but we were soon back on the road - yippee!
I gave mine back when I left the company in the mid 70's. I know the plate prefixes, and I still see them around. Unbelievable. They must have a million miles on them by now.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
