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.

Dare to Be Different in a Datsun 240Z
Owner Dave Scholz, shares his connection with a Japanese cult classic that
could easily be regarded as the 911 of Japan. Its iconic beauty, modular
mechanics, and desirability inspired Dave to heed to Datsun's famous racing
campaign of the '70s, "Dare to be different."
American heads spun when the 1970s ultimately snuffed out their beloved horsepower-drunk
muscle cars. As the world watched them squirm for performance, Japan was
busy developing the 240Z to bring a new thrill to American roads using
balance, harmony, and technology.
"Datsun didn't invent the overhead cam engine, or disc brakes, or
independent suspension but it has a habit of incorporating these
sophisticated systems into brilliantly conceived and easily affordable
cars." (Car and Driver; June, 1970)

Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.

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
