    Hino Contessa and BRE

    There is some interesting reading about BRE and the Hino Contessa that I found over at www.datsun.org.

    http://www.datsun.org/fairlady/BREHino.htm

    They were into racing Japanese cars before the Fairladies and Zeds that they are most known for.

    I here theres a handful of these cars over here in Perth WA.

    You found the back way into www.fairlady.org A fantastic website devoted to the Datsun Roadster racing history, you could spend days there.

    The Hino car hauler is currently at Classic Datsun in San Diego
