My third car

Posted by speedygeoff on Friday, May 27, 2016 with 2 comments
A 1969 Datsun sedan, pale blue. This I bought after arriving in Canberra, starting work here, and saving enough money for a deposit. I recall my father telling me he thought the 1600 was too powerful a car, but I bought it anyway. Perhaps as a Holden man he would have preferred I bought another Torana.


  1. my first car was a white 1971 Datsun 1600 (bought in 1990)

  2. I am so jealous right now! My very first car was a 1969 Datsun sedan in blue. I would have still been driving that car today if I didn't have to move out of the country. It had over 300,000 miles on it and it drove as good that day as it did the day I bought it brand new.
