Brochures: Datsun pricelist from 1973

December 26, 2014 in brochures

Last week I posted a picture of the showroom of a Dutch Datsun dealership and I remembered I also got a genuine Datsun pricelist with the Dutch Datsun catalogue I bought some time ago:

The Datsun pricelist is from February 1973 (pre 1973 oil crisis) and the prices are at least a bit surprising: Read the rest of this entry →

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

December 24, 2014 in christmas

As every year a merry Christmas and the best wishes for 2015!
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

My wishes for the New Year are:

  1. World peace
  2. Cure for all diseases
  3. Discovering a barn-find Nissan 2400GT (I’ll also settle for a Nissan 240K GT)

Video: LHD Nissan Skyline 240K in Kuwait

October 23, 2013 in video

There have been only a few places around the world that actually got LHD Nissan Skylines during the late 60s and 70s: (some countries in) Europe and the Middle East. Most Europeans did not care very much for Japanese cars and our climate isn’t that friendly to them either, so guess where you can find them nowadays…

Bingo! 😉

In the Middle East the rust monster leaves them alone and their only thread is a bunch of Kuwaitis hooning a couple of LHD Datsun 240K C110s and C210s: Read the rest of this entry →

WTF: Datsun 240K GT on Marktplaats

December 9, 2010 in WTF

A few weeks ago I placed this Datsun 240K GT, so my heart skipped another beat when I spotted this ad on Marktplaats (Dutch auction site) today:
Datsun 240K GT on Marktplaats
Datsun 240K GT on Marktplaats

But immediately I spotted that it was actually a wanted ad and not a sales ad. Apparently ssaam, hf4ever, Sam and serdaraydintr did not spot it that difference easily…

BTW: I’ll post the interesting example pictures from the ad later this week.

For sale: Datsun 240K C110

November 14, 2010 in for sale


The Doctor sent me about a week ago a link to a Belgian auction site. When I clicked on it my heart skipped a beat: there was a genuine Belgian Datsun 240K for sale!

When I looked at the biddings I immediately saw it was far beyond reach for me: the highest bid was already at 12000 euros (16500 US dollars).

Apart from the 280ZX rims it appears to be completely original:

I must add that the original wheels are not that beautiful, but if these 280ZX rims are fitted the Skyline should be lowered a few inches as well. 😉

Judging from the thick layer of durst the 240K must have been a barn-find and most importantly the interior appears to have survived the time machine!

The seller states that it could easily be transformed into a GT-R, probably to boost the sales price. That last part was apparently very successful.

Video: Skyline C110 JDM versus EU/AU

January 21, 2010 in video

Ever wondered what the difference is between the taillights of a EU/AU 240K GT GC110 and a JDM Skyline C110?

JDM on the left, EU/AU on the right.
I must say I like the JDM a lot better than the EU/AU spec. Let alone for having the double brakelights. 😉
