Remembering Japanese cars from the past

DOTS: local Laurel C31

Sortly before I went on holiday I spotted some J-tin driving in front of me. Unmistakably it turned out to be a red Datsun Laurel C31.

Also note the Honda S2000 I featured over two years ago on the right side of the photo.

At the bottom of the hill the Laurel was trapped at the traffic lights and I was able to shoot a close up photo:

Last week I found the car for sale on Marktplaats (Dutch Craigslist), but unfortunately it has disappeared from the site so either the Laurel has been sold or the ad has expired.
Still a bit of a shame to see another Japanese classic disappear from my hometown. :(

    This Laurel is now mine! It will be back on the road next week. I bought it with front damage and it took me a while to source parts.
