1978 DATSUN B210 INCREDIBLE SURVIVOR
Just to set the record straight, the "It happened in 1978" website was wrong and I failed to double-check them. Too late to re-script the entire video. So, once and for all... According to Wikipedia and several additional sources it was actually 1976 when the album Hotel California was released NOT 1978

Our 1978 Datsun B210 with 19,600 actual miles. (31,500km) It has been garaged it's entire life. It has never been winter driven, and has seldom seen rain... No smoking ever. This car is not restored, it has never had any paint work of any kind. The body and interior are almost perfect. The engine compartment has not been detailed. The car is kept in climate control and only driven a few times each year to car shows. It has an EPA-mpg rating of 28 city and 41 highway! It is powered by a 1.4 liter 4-cylinder engine with a 4-speed manual transmission.

Thank you for viewing my video. My apologies for poor quality as I am not a professional film maker.
Datsun 120a F2 Cherry Coupe - Today
**PLEASE TURN YOUR VOLUME TO MAX** A couple of years ago I realised that my first car, a Datsun 120a F2 Coupe, was the only car that I've ever really liked or wanted - So after a 20-year gap I've managed to buy and then restore another, matching many details to try and recreate that original car. It's been a lot of work but has turned out rather well, with a vehicle that is a vast improvement on my rusty original. This is a short film showcasing the car as it is today - one of only a few still left running in the country (UK).
this is a 1977 datsun b210, 5 speed. I have painted the back end and the front grill. plus a really good polish and wax. it isnt the fastest thing but it does the job. I have only had it for about two weeks but I already enjoy it to the fullest. And I know before I wouldnt be caught dead in a import car, but I have gladly changed my mind. Why...... because you cant beat 30 miles to the gallon in the city and 50 on the highway. And if you are curious of my music choice for this video....... I thought it was appropriate for a little put-put.

This iteration of the Silvia (sold in United States and Canada as the Datsun 200SX and in Mexico as the Datsun Sakura), available as a 2-door hardtop coupe and a 3-door hatchback, was uniquely progressive in that it was originally intended to feature a rotary engine, designed and built by Nissan. The resulting unit was fairly unreliable, and forestalled production. Ironically, it shared a chassis code with the also ill-fated Mazda Cosmo, first Japanese production car to feature a rotary engine. The car was redesigned shortly after it was released and the Wankel power plant was replaced by a line of conventional piston engines based on the new Z-series engine. These included the Z20 and the turbocharged and fuel injected Z18ET. In USA/Canada the 200SX had the Z20E with H165 rear axle from 1979-1981. From 1982--1983, it had a Z22E engine with H190 rear axle. Vehicles with engines over 2000cc are still considered "compact" vehicles under Japanese regulations regarding engine size
Cutting the roof off a car (Datsun B210) to make a converted (not convertible)
A bunch of guys decide to do something a bit different this day in June 1990, while at Central Michigan University (CMU) for a graduation party. They decide to chop the roof off of a Datsun B210 that was bought for just $125. It is quite funny, so take a look. This is how to make a convertable car. It is amazing how much structural support is provided by having an intact roof on a car. Driving this was dangerous, and it should not be done at home.
