• 240Z: Swiss 1969 Datsun brochure & Swiss market 280ZX Catalogue

    Unfortunately i’m super busy with my new job position, but i plan to return to the car projects, as soon as things calm down. On the positive side is that i can save money for some bigger tasks on the list. And even though i’m quite busy due to various circumstances, i still find time to purchse some nice documents every now and then. Today some nice swiss Datsun / Nissan Brochures arrived here from the UK: The first one is an 1969 Swiss sales brochure, which features six cars, but only five of them are for sale Because the 6th one is the Nissan R381 Prototype racecar listed here…

  • 240Z: More rare Datsun Documents

    Lately i came across a few interesting Datsun Documents again, So naturally i had to collect them: The first one is a weird oversized Nissan KYXX Concept car brochure. I was hoping it had some information about nissan switzerland, but all it has is this strange concept car’s information: The second one is a super rare Swiss-made Nissan / Datsun Z book. Which tells the story about the Z. It has some rare swiss footage and photos from the early Datsun-scene in switzerland. And is generally pretty well made. It features some nice information, which is rarely seen in the more widespread english books. It seems pretty well researched. But…

  • OTHER: Greetings from the Julierpass

    The last days we spent skiing with some friends in St.Moritz which was all great itself. But the real fun was the way there and back. Ok the way there was late at night in the dark so i took driving easy. But the way back was absolutely glorious! We initially planned to drive back over the Flüelen or Albula pass but both of them where closed because of snow / Winter-time. The other Route via davos would include loading the car on a train for a part of the trip, which i wanted to avoid, so this is basically the only route left (except a long detour via the…

  • 240Z: More rare Datsun Switzerland documents arrived again

    I’m working on a big story about the Datsun Switzerland history, and therefore i’m collecting old Datsun (Suisse) SA / and Fehlman Motor group Documents. Not all of them, but i’m trying to focus on the rare and old ones. So these days i got a few Documents in my mailbox again. The first item is a swiss Datsun 1300 A4 double-sided catalog flyer, from 1967. Which i found for sale in france… The interesting thing here is that both Datsun (Suisse) SA and Nissan Motor Co Foreign trade division names are printed on the Flyer. It also mentions that this Flyer was printed in japan. So it must have…

  • 240Z: The big “Barn Find” parts lot

    Disclaimer: Nothing in this post is for sale – Do not ask me, thanks! What qualifies something as a “barn find” has been discussed previously. But nevertheless, i found these parts covered in dust in an old shed. They were not exactly “forgotten about”, but stored there in many years. The story behind them unfortunately includes a bit of human tragedy. After many years, i was the lucky one to buy the whole lot. Well sort of. Since i’m not exactly a hoarder and did not want to have many more parts of those i already own, i made an agreement with a Friend who basically bought the whole lot…
