Datsun 100A runs after standing 27 years
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.

in the garage for 3 months. Clearly a good battery!
A Datsun Film: Rally of the 1000 Lakes 1981 part 1
A very rare film (in Finnish): Datsun-Nissan promotional video from the
Rally of the 1000 Lakes 1981 "Those Formidable Flying Finns". Introduction
with a brief overlook of how Finnish drivers are brought up from karting
etc. Footage of Timo Salonen and Seppo Harjanne preparing for the rally,
interviews with some of the race organizers etc. And of course: some
brilliant footage of the rally itself in the beautiful scenery of the
Finnish lake district. Enjoy!
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).
