Yankees Datsun

datsunyankee.jpg We had always heard stories about how Datsun promoted the 1200 Sunny in the US by some kind of giveaway prize at New York Yankees baseball games, but we never could find the photos. Thanks to our friends at Jalopnik, we have visual confirmation of the bogey. Apparently, this was used as a bullpen car in the 1972 season, and later, in a contest where fans could win this pinstriped Yankee Datsun, not to be confused with this Yanky Datsun.
