Datsun Go+ (Sparco Spec)

Let me guess. Like me you are probably wondering what the heck Nissan / Datsun was thinking when they released the Datsun Go+ 1.2 L on our shores. Gone were our beloved straight body lines, the strong character and the joy of our beloved SSS badge(ing) and heritage.

Then we were flooded by videos of how exactly this "so-called car" failed miserably at the NCAP Standard Car Safety Test (read more here). And you thought how can such a great thing be re-introduced into the market and be so bad, the total opposite of what they were trying to achieve.

Well, perhaps there's some hope. If one can save an old Datsun and improve on the formula with some "new bits of technology..." Haven't you dreamt of a L28 or VVL Motor within that small shell? Perhaps one can make lemonade with the latest offering...

Introducing the Datsun Go+ Sparco Spec.... We'll probably never see it, unless someone from Vereeniging, Boksburg or Mitchells Plain goes "BOSS" in the backyard.... Hmmm?

On the Spot - Datsun 140Z

You just can't keep a good Datsun down. While driving from Zevenwaght Mall in Kuils River earlier today I spotted this beauty - a 140Z Datsun. Much to my surprise I notice a certain Facebook comment from Riaan Jacobs that he is expecting this lovely lady soon. Good to know she'll be looked well after once she reaches him. Riaan - You are indeed a lucky fellow!

Winter Blues...

I get it. Winter is not for everyone. And I guess Cape Town and the rest of South Africa is undergoing what is considered one of the coldest winter's we've seen in ages... But please... Is that truly a reason why we haven't had a meeting or drive in the last few weeks? I for one am having a serious Datsun urge/craving... Familia.... we need to do SOMETHING! And SOON!

Datsun - We are driven (thanks to Phillip for the inspiration)

To cover my urge I'm playing around with images... Perhaps I should be posting past events as well just to cover the urge. I'm also trying my utmost to get my ride back on the road...

What are you doing to get through this "dry spell?" In SA's winter! LOL!

All About DATSUN decided to celebrate the day with an open invitation to any car enthusiast to come along for a drive/cruize through Stellenbosch, Helshoogte, Franshhoek, Theewaterskloofdam, Grabouw & Sir Lowry's Pass.
