My Datsun 510 is a work in progress. I was into Datsun's the day after I was born and this was the car literally rode in. So my interest in cars recently came about when I saw our family's old 510 rusting in a field for the past 25 years, until 2009 when I decided to take it on as my restoration project. Thought I'd start this blog about just different stuff that interests me (not just cars but hobbies too). This car is not for sale nor will it ever be for sale. *If your car is featured here against your wishes or you see incorrect information, please contact me at classicdatsuns@gmail.com , and I will make any necessary changes. Have fun viewing. I am not affiliated with any sponsors, company, or body shop. I'm just a dude that likes Datsuns.

Classic Kyusha(classic Japanese car) on Album Cover

Well this title is a little redundant a little haha.  Anyways I was just browsing the web and found this album cover for Jun Mayuzumi's album titled "A Girl In Love".  Jun Mayuzumi was pretty popular in her day and released several albums throughout the 60's and 70's.  Her sound was that mostly of pop, bossa nova, and disco.  The car used on her album cover is a Nissan Gloria model from 1967-1971.
The Gloria (A30 & PA30) was the luxury car of it's day especially in Japan.  It's difficult to find certain specs for this car because it seems as though the body style remained, the engines offered were changing.  There were quite a few variations of trims and engines models available.  There were many similarities with the changes that were also happening with other cars offered from Nissan at this time as well.
