Jump up and wave your arms around: Bluebird Extravaganza
August 18, 2009
There’s a good reason I’m into sunnys… they’re small and lightweight but they’re also small and lightweight. Well that and you can fix them with a piece of sandpaper and a screwdriver. In saying that, I can fully appreciate the larger nostalgics. They always look that bit more impressive, like ” how is that huge thing so low”.
So onto one of my favourite heavy weights, the Datsun 180B (610).

Possibly the coolest thing about these luxury liners, apart from the crouch stimulating body lines and accessories; is how massive the fenders are. You can fit some stupidly big wheels under them, they swallow 8′s like a sumo wrestler and go back for another dish.
A while ago I saw a picture of a black 180B two door with a radicalstance and an obnoxious chin spoiler and ever since then they’ve been one of my favourites. This Longchamp XR4 swallowing B is a four door as you can see but I guess it makes it look more of a cruiser, until it starts sliding around anyway.
A classic body shape if I’ve ever seen one. It’s been added to the list
You can’t just roll around by yourself now can you. A coupe, a B310 and a 510 accompany
Now, apart from it looking pretty it also goes pretty well. You can’t argue with a 13 second 400m time.
Can you tell these dudes are excited? They’re getting dancey, the reason for the post title
