**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).
Datsun 120Y, Canberra SDMA Hillclimb.
Racing the 120Y in the 2009 Canberra SDMA Hillclimb Series, at Fairbairn
By the end of the year i won my class, and came 2nd outright. During one
race meet, I mounted some cameras and filmed a few of the runs.
Class: Type 4 (extensively modified) upto 1600cc
Best laptime: 52.70sec
Car: 1975 Datsun 120Y
Running a worked A15 with twin SU Carbs. 71 rwkw. 550kg rolling weight. 1/4
mile time of 15sec. Its setup more for dirt rally, rather then circuit or
Extractors hooked up to a 2.25 inch out-the-side Exhaust.
Custom front and rear suspension.
Locked rear diff. Stripped interior.
Tires are Bridgestone Potenza RE55's.
Its not much but its a lot fun :D
1978 Datsun 120y (B210) Coupe. MX5 1.8 vvt engine
280ZX front struts converted to coilover and 280Zx vented disc brakes. Axle

springs, leaf springs have extra leaf fitted plus axle has tramp bars.
Engine is standard Mazda MX5 apart from modified plenum to increase volume

I sold this car in 2013. i do miss it but i need to finish off my F20c
powered Honda S800. hopefully a video in a few years time. should be fun.

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
See a FULL SCREEN PHOTO image at this link:
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.
