Friday Video: Depth of Speed’s Wagon Heritage

This Friday Josh Clason‘s Depth of Speed series returns with a new video about Duane Schaffer‘s Datsun 510 Wagon and Toyota Hilux. As always, the cinematography is gorgeous and the story quite moving to the die-hard car nut. Schaffer’s garage is packed with period automobilia, and there’s nothing we like more than some cross-marque love, especially in truck and wagon form. Watch the video below the fold.

    I think the depth of speed films are just amazing. The variety and detail they show is spot on. I agree about wagons being less appreciated than other body styles. I grew up with a 1982 Nissan Sunny Éstate and even after my dad passed it on to his brother after >200,000 km, the car kept driving without breakdown for another 200.000. That model type is definately a contender for an unappreciated JDM classic.

      I think there was a top gear episode where they torched one for being boring. Not even touching on any of it’s redeeming qualitys…

    i agree…wagons are well under appreciated. i’ve developed deep love for the wagon silhouette because it is the perfect platform for a sleeper car.

    I love the Depth of Speed videos. They let the cars and the owners be the stars. There’s no host trying to make himself the star of the show. There’s no over the top music to drown out the sound of the engine. They do it right.
