Went out to the Datsun day at Prospect Hotel in Sydney. There were a lot of nice cars out there and took some pic's of some of them . Here they are any way.

I use to service crew for this 240Z. It is a very nicely presented rally car. I remember at its first event after being rebuilt to its current specification, everyone was saying that it was too nice to be used as a dirt rally car.
After the end of that season, it's owner has since decided to retire it from dirt rallies and to use it for motokhanas and track events.

They put the steering wheel on the wrong side of this Datsun!

What a great day! Kudos to the Sydney Datsun Club for putting on this inaugural event. It was a big success, with 117 older Nissans braving the scorching summer heat to come and show their cars.

I don't think I've seen so many 510s in one place before! Let's open the account with Jeff Shoesmith's car, a self-built SR20DET powered beast (best ET 11.9 I believe). He also was awarded the "Built Not Bought" award at the end of the day too. Super-clean too, as I'm sure you'll agree. Jeff was hoping to be rolling on split-rim Watanabes today, but they were damaged by the tyre shoppe and are being fixed.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Stealthy 200B coupe sported a very neat SR20DET conversion
Image

Image

Very nicely stanced Sunny Truck on SSR MkIIs, rocking an oldschool twin Webered A-series
Image

Image

Image

Speaking of stealthy...spot the intercooler? :D (not sure what motor this was running though)
Image

Image

This Sunny Coupe was sporting some decidedly non-stock rear fitment! Also scooped the "Best CA-Series" award too.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Plenty of other nice Sunny's showed up too
Image

Image

This one had a cool 70's style metal flake paintjob! Maybe it was an extra in Corvette Summer or something :)
Image

These two Ceddies were owned/built by a pair of med students. JNC'ers too.

The day was designed to be a show and shine and swap meet, so all entrants were encouraged to bring along their unwanted Datsun parts for sale.
Image

Image

Image

So did I, but didn't get any takers for the Kameari Engine Works ignition set or the Kenmeri drilled discs.
Image

This super-sanitary 260Z on perfect-fitment 16in wats is owned by a JNC subscriber :) Check out that engine bay!
Image

Image

Image

The Zeds in fact had quite a strong showing. This gunmetal monster got a lot of looks.
Image

Image

Works-replica rallycar
Image

Image

Image

These pics following aren't from today's event, but are from the Lugarno Calssic Car Show a couple of months ago (for some reason I was too busy drooling to take any pics of it today). But it deservedly scooped many awards, Best L-Series, Best Restored and Best Datsun
Image

Image

Oh, and here's that Sanitora again :)

If you had a 510 and lived in Sydney, I guess you were probably here today :)
Image

Image

Many were to stock specs, and I was surprised to see quite a few USDM left hand drive coupes
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This blue sedan had something I hadn't seen in a long while
Image

...a stock L-series :)
Image

This rallycar was equipped with all the period mods
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Very nice SSS Coupe on Hayashis
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This 510 was done up in very much an aussie resto-mod style. The 510 has limited room for an intercooler, but as you can see...aussies improvise :D
Image

With a big-power transplanted later model engine
Image

...and of course...venetians
Image

This yellow Stanza coupe reminds me so much of that epic BIGJOHN build a few years ago
Image

Image

Very nice and clean Iron Mask DR30. It's for sale too.
Image

RX-3 sedan interloper!
Image

It wasn't the only rotary vehicle though...this Sunny Truck had a surprise in the engine bay. Very serious drar race setup, and yes, that dyno sheet does say 416hp.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

TA22 with turbo twincam transplant was cool too
Image

Image

And of course JNCer Fonzy's awesome Kaido-style TA22 was there too.
Image

Very neat 120Y on wats
Image

Image

More Sunny love
Image

Image

The Hako was entered in the show too, and we were pretty honoured to get Best Post 1970 Datsun at the end of the day (and yes I realise I've already managed to break the trophy) :lol:
Image

Image

Great show, nice low key event with a great atmosphere and a good day of just chatting with oldschool Datsun guys.

Kev,

Congratulations on winning the trophy. :tu:
I was really keen to see your Skyline. I went out there first thing this morning but you weren't there while I was there. I had just left and was driving along Prospect Hwy when I saw your Skyline coming the other way . I then decided to return later to have a look at your car and I'm glad i did. It is a very nice car you have there.

80 Cedric,

They're some really nice pic you've taken there. :tu:

When you come across a car like that, is it as different to you to see this as it is for someone say here in the US?

If you are refering to my comment about it being left hand drive then probably not. It's not every day you see a Datsun 1600 let alone a left hand drive one. I was just having a bit of a piss take that the steering wheel is on the left side of the car and we drive on the "right" side of the car. :D No offence.

The only thing I cant understand though is why they didnt import a LHD 2 door 1600 to be even more unique :?

I guess they must love their sedans more, each to their own :mrgreen: :tu:

The owner of that 4 door sedan found it in Northern Territory originally.

Was recently used in a Robert De Niro film called The Killer Elite which was filmed in melbourne. It's affectionately known as "the movie car" as it has been used in films before.

That white LHD 4dr was painted white by the Killer Elite movie crew.

Prior to that it was light blue, as seen in the Australian-shot scenes in the movie 'Mao's Last Dancer'. JNCer datsunfreak's light blue 510 was used in the US scenes.
