We spent a rainy Independence Day with Dan Banks, Datsun fanatic, Z Car Club of America historian, and owner of a mint ’71 240Z, a 1990 300ZX Turbo, and the oldest known Datsun truck in private hands, which happens to be a 1938 Fire Truck. Dan has an incredible collection of pre-war Datsun memorabilia that ranges from newspaper ads to a leaping rabbit hood ornament. We are also proud to report that the truck’s services weren’t needed during this year’s festivities and all of our fingers remain attached. Look for an article soon.
Happy Fourth of July!
