Car has had numerous engines over the years as it has been used as  family transport and motorsport since I have owned it but it has never been in rally. It has been used at the Drags, Lap Dashes at Oran and Ameroo Parks. My wife Val even drove it for a number of years as a shopping trolley (it had a 180B engine with twin SU’s then for drivability). In the early years it had a few different highpo motors in it. Then about 10 years ago he was asked to enter the car at the Summer Nats when he was planning to rebuild the car. But to do this I had to give my wife another car so she
got a Silver Nissan 280ZX, which she calls DATSEXY. She has also entered this car at the summernats as an original car. Val won a Go to Wo competition one year with her car.
I have also owned (lost count) many datsun 1600’s (well over 20 !!). DATSEZY is still wearing its original panels since new, none have been replaced !!  All 3 of my daughters have learnt to drive in 1600’s from the age of 12 (not in DATSEZY !!) doing motorkhanas and the like. All 3 of them also have had datsuns of different models as there first cars. So you could say we have been in the Datsun family for over 20 years with at least 50 of them passing through my hands.
