• OTHER: Rare Honda Jazz / City Turbo II for sale!

    Disclaimer. I don’t know the seller or the car, but this is beyond cool and rare , so i had to share it 🙂 A Honda Jazz / City turbo II.  One of the rare Honda’s that came with a turbo back in the day. Link to original sales ad here: https://www.autoscout24.ch/de/d/honda-jazz-kleinwagen-1984-occasion?utm_campaign=as24_share_android&utm_medium=social_sharing&utm_source=app_share&vehid=9952979 Ok the price ain’t cheap, the interieur seems a bit flashy, The mugen wheels might be a tad too new, but the Mugen Bodykit and the rest seems to fit. Honestly i didn’t even know they made those in LHD and thought it was a japan special only. Nevertheless, it seems like a quality build on the first…

  • OTHER: MB-Click vs Swissclick Numberplate mounts

    The Meta algorithm has been pushing out ads for sleek number plate mounts a lot recently , so the idea of “invisible” number plate mounts has been growing on me in the past few months. In Switzerland, you can have the same set of numberplates for multiple cars, means you have to switch them regularly if you own more than one car. That is a really nice system, but requires special number plate mounts to easy move number plates from one to another car without a lot of hassle. Over many years the “Swissclick” or similar brand has been everybody’s favourite. they come in a many colours, are easy to…

  • OTHER: 240K-GT (Kenmary) & Datsunologie Brochures

    Lately i found two nice swiss datsun brochures for sale again, and naturally, i had to get them: The first one is the Datsun 240K-GT (Known as the Nissan Skyline “Kenmary” or “Yonmeri” in other countries) bruchure from August 1973, and i just wanted to have it because of the rare “sports car” nostalgy. The second brochure, i wanted to have especially, because i’ve never seen them before and because it is a bit unique, comapred to the other datsun brochures. There is no production date on it, but i assume it is from the same 1973-ish era, by the cars featured. The “Datsunoligy” made-up word here used to describe…

  • PLACES: Vehicle spotting in Norway and Sweden

    In the last weeks, me and my wife flew to norway to undertake a 2 week roadtrip thourh southern sweden and norway, but i’ll show you more off the lovely fjords and forest roads in a different posts soon. In this post we’re gonna focussing a bit on carspotting. I didn’t put any focus on this and i missed a lot of opportunities to grab a shot here and there, but here are just some random examples of cars, ships and airplanes we met along the way. First we went 4 days to Oslo, the Capital of norway. Aside from beeing a beautiful city, i realized, how many electric cars…

  • OTHER: Welcome to Sabine’s world of Toyota classics

    Remember when i bought a Micro-fiche reader on a local auction website and when picking it up realized that the owner was a lady who also happended to have an incredible toyota classics collection? I didn’t have much time back then so ever since, i wanted to return with more time and a camera and have a chat. Luckily that finally happened the last weekend. Turns out that Sabine, the owner, is an absolutely lovely person with an absolute passion for old toyotas. She’s a former toyota mechanic and ever since then got bit by the Toyotaku bug. She’s got an excellent taste and knowledge when it comes to old…

  • 240Z: Door hinge repair kit, 1971 colour chart, competition manual and other Documents

    Recently i collected a lot of stuff again, which i want to share with you. I got a bunch of documents from my mate Stefan again, thanks a lot for your great support, as usual. first an Datsun special tool catalogue from the late 60ies: A bunch of late 60ies spare parts bulletins: And also a bunch uf “Nissan service journal” (pre-service bulletin) from the same era. I also got myself one of those swiss promotional Datsun jo-jo’s, which were giveaways from Datsun switzerland back in the day. I already own one, but since it has some cosmetic flaws and came without the thread, i got this one too now…

  • OTHER: Merry christmas and happy Holidays

    Well, it’s that time of the year again, i guess 🙂 Dear readers. I Know blogs are a bit outdated, but after trying several  other social media and things, i still believe that blogs are the best way to represent such content. I therefore want to thank you for following me another year and hope you enjoyed it. 2022 will definitely be a hectic year for me, like 2021 was. with some great job opportunities, which also means more responsibility there. But on the other hand i will hopefully do my federal exams in April and after that have more time for my hobbies (mostly cars) agains. We’ll see what…

  • HISTORY: The story of Datsun, Nissan & Prince Switzerland – Part 3 “The early years” (1960 – 1977)

    This is the third part of a multi-post series about the (hi)story of Datsun, Prince and Nissan in switzerland.  Check out the other parts HERE In this third installment we’re looking at the inside of Datsun (Suisse) SA and the Fehlmann Motor Group (excluding the industrial vehicles, which will be covered in a later post) in the years 1960-1977 a bit more in-depht. It was basically the period when the Datsun brand was brought to switzerland and established as a serious car brand from scratch. Remember, back then japan was still a far away and “mystic” country, and it took serious efforts to get goods to the other side of…

  • 240Z: Datsun Switzerland official jackets / hoodies

    A few days ago i found these Datsun Jackets for sale, and found out it was a friend of mine selling those. I thought they where cool, so i went and got them. Turns out those were unused, original swiss datsun merchangdising items. Even tho they’re size L and XL they’re more of a childrens size, and made of a weird plastic material (polyester). it feels like it looks. Like wearing a trashbag or so. Nevertheless, i think they’re super funky and cool and just had to have them. Since i have no clue what to do with them, and since i had a picture-frame leftover, i decided frame the…

  • OTHER: Datsun Colour code charts and color brochures

    My Friend René (which is also the guy to paint my car once it’s ready) recently sent me a picture of an official Datsun colour code brochure, joking he’s preparing to paint my car 🙂 It is a Datsun UK color chart foldout brochure, and it was most probably issued in 1973 Update 2021: My friend Daniel also got a copy from this very same 1973 UK colour chart and was nice enough to scan it for me. See link below for full High-resolution pdf for download. Then myself also got an April 1974 version from the similar colour chart including the C110 Kenmary skyline and the 260Z (inclunding 2+2).…
