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.

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).
1978 Datsun 120y (B210) Coupe. MX5 1.8 vvt engine
280ZX front struts converted to coilover and 280Zx vented disc brakes. Axle
is Ford English shortened with plated diff and Quaife shafts converted to
114.3 Datsun PCD. rear brakes are RS2000 spec 9inch. 250lb front springs,
leaf springs have extra leaf fitted plus axle has tramp bars. Engine is
standard Mazda MX5 apart from modified plenum to increase volume and ported
intake runners. 150ish BHP
First off, I would like to Thank everyone again for following our project
and for the comments.We haven't post much for some time (About 195 hours of
labor) because sanding is boring to watch much less "do".
So here we are at primer stage- This stage is done to smooth out
imperfections, find problem areas and to know where you should focus your
attention to ready yourself for the next stage.
This primer will be long blocked with 80 and 150 grit. The guide coat of
blue is to show areas during sanding that still needs work.
The next step we are looking at is to remove the motor, trans, suspension,
from the front and paint the engine compartment the color of the car. Then
Re-install all of the mechanicals including firewall and dash to make this
car a running vehicle.
