According to one Datsun Enthusiast who was visiting relatives in Pakistan, one of the most prestigious taxis around is the Datsun Sunny B110 4dr. Yes, we’re talking currently, not 20-30 years ago.
Here’s a nice example that was spotted last year:
If you’re not B110 savvy, this is a JDM GL spec “face lift” specimen, circa 1971.
Sure, it’s a little beat up, but considering it’s haunts, it could be a lot worse. Most importantly, the car is precious to its owner; it’s not just another piece of metal.
As you can see, the exterior is mostly original Sunny, with the exception of a few bolt-on trinkets. Under hood, however, it’s probable that a Toyota diesel has replaced the venerable A-Series engine.
Oh yeah, somebody’s bound to comment about the “RIP” license plates. Purely coincidental, as many vehicles in this area of Pakistan share the same prefix on their plates.
