My dad had a Datsun 180B estate in the mid 80's, what a car. He bought a honda accord off our neighbour and hardly used the 180. It was just standing in the side rd going nowhere. I remember it well, it must have been 6 months sat there when my dad went to start it and straight up, no joking it started first time. Japanese reliability. Sad to see it go when he sold it, would still be on the road today I bet??.
It's always been pronounced 'Dachia' but that effete fop James May unfortunately went on about the 'Daysia' on TG and now everyone thinks that's the correct way. Then again, car names never travel well...here are a few examples...
