News: MEET THE OWNER – CHRIS JAMES AND HIS NISSAN STANZA

When looking at photographs of 1980s traffic, you often encounter Japanese cars that have now almost entirely vanished – the Mitsubishi Spacewagon, the second-generation Honda Accord, and the Nissan Stanza

News: MEET THE OWNER – DAVEY PESKETT AND HIS NISSAN PRESIDENT

Few, if any, people are likely to approach Davey on seeing his 1974 Nissan and tell him ‘my dad/mum/next-door neighbour/teacher used to have one of those’. The H250-Series President was never officially sold in the UK, and Mr. Peskett ‘only bought it by fluke from Japan’. In its homeland, this was the car for senior politicians, business tycoons and the Royal Family.

News: JAMES RAILTON - AND THE NISSAN CEDRIC THAT CAME IN FROM THE COLD

“I’ve always been a Japanese car guy. My first car was a 1983 Suzuki SJ410, and I have had a 1985 Mazda 323 RWD estate, Suzuki SC100 and 1998 Subaru Impreza etc. I had been looking for a large classic Japanese estate car for a while and when I saw the Cedric, I had to get it”.

News: DO YOU REMEMBER – THE DATSUN 100A CHERRY?

The Datsun 100A Cherry is an exclusive sight these days and a well-preserved survivor that has the power to evoke days of Cola Rola ice lollies and Kenny Everett announcing Celebrity Squares on ATV.

Through no fault of their own, some cars never seemed to establish a niche in the UK. In Spain, the SEAT 133 was regarded as the heir to the 850. However, British motorists were perplexed by what seemed to be an enlarged Fiat 126. The Cherry Europe was the product of an ambitious agreement between Nissan and Alfa Romeo, but it seemed to have no apparent role in Datsun GB’s line-up.

News: DO YOU REMEMBER – THE ALFA ROMEO ARNA?

A little over 37 years ago, Nissan and Alfa Romeo signed an agreement that eventually produced one of the most notably unsuccessful cars of its generation. Even now, the question is often asked in motoring circles – ‘was the Arna a Nissan Cherry with the build quality of the average Alfa?’

News: THE TALBOT SOLARA – AN APPRECIATION

Gavin Bushby is not only the Chairman of the Fiat Motor Club; he is also the proud owner of a very unusual Coventry-built saloon: a Talbot Solara Rapier. ‘Beautiful gold, with brown, brown, beige, and brown velour’. And the colour scheme was not the only attraction of this fine car as it presented the driver with plush ‘inserts on the door trim pads and ‘front hockey-stick armrests’.

News: DO YOU REMEMBER THE ‘PRE-FARINA’ AUSTIN CAMBRIDGE?

If, like me, you are a devotee of 1950s and 1960s British cinema, there is one model of car that so often appears in the background. A GS5-series Austin A40/A50/A55 Cambridge Mk. I is almost as ubiquitous a sight as a cameo performance from Sam Kydd, reflecting its popularity.

News: Carrying On - With The London Vintage Taxi Association

On Sunday 31st March, Windsor was visited by an icon of British cinema. To a casual observer, the Austin 12/4 Low-Loader with Strachan coachwork was a wonderfully preserved example of the sort of taxi that you so often see in newsreels of London.
