1975 Datsun 120Y 1.2L Leaded from Australia and New Zealand
I've only driven a few cars (high performance ones to) but nothing is as reliable or cost effective
Valve stem cells needed replacing. Blew a bit of smoke as a result of slight oil leakage.
Crack in dashboard.
Sticks to the road like nothing else.
Awesome fuel economy (roughly 500km on the 43L tank)
For a 1171 cc 1975 model a top speed of around 150 km/h is great.
Changed all head gaskets, exhaust gaskets, cleaned push-rods, and replaced valve stem cells in under 3 hours.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

All 120Ys blew smoke on the overrun when followed by acceleration e.g. decelerating down a hill, then accelerating up the next hill... as the valve stem seals needed to be replaced every 80,000 kilometres.
I kept mine for 228k kms... so the valve stem seals were replaced @ 80k and 160k kms.
