200B All the way

I'm with Sp33dy on this one, My very first car was a 200B. Had very big plans for it but it never eventuated cos the ass end was totally gone cos of rust and sourcing another entire rear quarter without rust damage was impossible. She's gone now tho :( She's up in the big carpark in the sky. Here's a few pics anyway


She aint lowered, we were mucking round with the brakes on the other side and it was jacked up about a foot and half


Notice the extractors and silicone covering a crack on the front of the rocker cover.

It wasn't bad for $180, she ran very well and the interior was pretty good for a car that age, only 180 000 on the speedo too. Does anyone know what is so special about the Datsun 200B SX cos thats what I had

Re: 200B All the way

The paint job actually turned out better than I had expected, those 20 odd years in the sun really did give it a nice finish although the best bit is on the other side where we have custom airbrushing of a cock and balls, damn shame I never got a pic of that. Can you see the colour coding of the wheel nuts? there's even 2 still on the boot drying. We also later painted the extractors with silver Export paint, it stank like shit for ages and eventually came off

Re: 200B All the way

Neither the 180B or 120Y was a limo in terms of interior space (heck, not even particularly humane in that respect). But I think the 120Y is a far better car. Its reliability and fuel economy is first rate by any standards, and it combines this with exceptional simplicity and longevity.

Basically, for as long as it does everything that it needs to do so well, the 120Y can't be beaten for someone in the $250-$350 used car price range.

By the way, a look at the 120Y advertisement among other things can be found below:
