Friday Video: Nissan Technical Center Celebrates 30th Anniversary

Instead of the wanton destruction of 430 Cedrics, this week’s video shows them being created at the Nissan Technical Center in Atsugi, Kanagawa Prefecture. Founded in late 1981, the NTC is the design and engineering hub of the Yokohama-based automaker, and the birthplace of everything from the March to the GT-R to, in an earlier cut of this video, the as-of-yet-unveiled 2013 Altima (oops).

As Ceddys, 910 Bluebirds and 720 pickups funnel off the assembly line and onto Nissan’s trademark red-white-blue car carriers, we wonder which ones were destined to meet an untimely end as Seibu Keisatsu chase fodder.

    I think the Nissan 720 pickup was the first model to be produced at the Nissan plant in Smyrna, Tennessee, USA for that market.
