Badged as a Datsun 160J, this KP711 Violet wears the rally livery of the 1977 Southern Cross Rally winning cars. The car had been in storage for 17 years in a garage east of Tokyo, then it made its way to Nagasaki to get given a freshen up, and to be slammed on the deck.
I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool!<More>
