As we mentioned last week, the Datsun Heritage Museum observed Mr. K’s 100th birthday on September 19. A Datsun-only car show was held in Katayama-san’s honor, and here are the photos.
Lest we be found guilty of portraying Zs and 510s only, here’s a Datsun 320 pickup upstaging a couple of nice Roadsters and two 510s way in the back.
A 620 pickup and Sunny sedan.
Here’s something rare – a Datsun NL320, which has the face of a 320 pickup, but the bed and cab have fused into one.
Possibly even rarer, a Datsun Bluebird P312, complete with hand crank engine and a well-worn patina. If the restoration is half as good as the owner’s other work, this will look gorgeous when it’s done.
When was the last time you saw a Nissan motorsports division original resettable tachometer?
Cool license plate, *wink wink*.
Okay, you can have your badass 510s now.
With beautiful Wats.
One of the things we love about the Datsun Heritage Museum is that they do a great job of rotating the display vehicles regularly. There’s something new to see with each visit, like this turquoise B210 coupe.
Plus a 1976 B210 sedan of exactly the same color, donated last year by a museum patron. Just 13 years separate the B210 and the R32 Skyline. When else are you going to see these two side by side?
The museum is in the process of restoring this 1959 Datsun 1000 (aka Bluebird 210).
Before we go, have a slice of cake for Mr. K!
