No longer owned


I bought this in LA from a fellow who knew nothing about the car other than it was a worthless Datsun in his mind with a V8 in it. Run down, ragged and in need of refreshing. This turned out to be a rock solid, rust free, super fast little car which I kept for a few years and blew away many exotics with. The interior was done by me in the original turquois and the exhaust was a work of art. This was one of my favourite cars. I started a business, needed money and sold to a fellow in Florida.
