1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2 door Sports Coupe mild A12 from Australia and New Zealand
It's a race car all in all
Only stuff that was of my own fault. It was rebuilt with new pistons/rings/bearings etc and freshened head with new valves the week I purchased it. I managed to bend a push rod through over revving of the engine :)
The best car I have ever owned, full stop. Never let me down, I drove it 200+ k's each way nearly every weekend for almost a year, to see my girlfriend and it never once let me down.
It had the power after some modifications to be safe and be able to really turn on the heat when haste was of necessity.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Funny, I had a similar experience, my Datsun Coupes, 6 in all, so far varied in engine size from stock 1200 to 1300 mild tune, to 1500 medium tune, and just recently an 1800 injected turbo.
First time I remember meeting my to be girlfriend, I picked her up in my 1300 coupe, and eventually did the 200 miles a week driving to and from to picking her up, and now after 28 years of marriage, she has let me buy a 1800 turbo 1; a match made in heaven me thinks :)
