**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).

Showing Datsun 100A starting, freed the clutch and all 4 wheels which had seized up. Then we towed it down the road to get some compression into it, then hooked up fresh petrol and a battery, and off she went.
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

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.
