You're probably right Stephen, thanks for chiming in! I believe the "Datsun 510" (1977-1981) was sold here as a "Datsun Stanza". This is where my mistake came from. I think it was called Violet in Japan then, as well as the Auster spinoff. Also it was called Violet in Europe I think!

Do you know if a "Stanza" model was available in Japan for this model (1977-1981)? Because that would make it much more fun :)LOL

We had our version of that Silvia from 77-79 and our version of the Violet/Auster from 77-81. Here's some pictures from the U.S. sales brochures. The first is the 78 200SX and the second is a 79 510 as they were baged here.

Ahhhhhh, so thats what that is. I Always loved that car!

I jus haven't seen it in awhile (like 3 years ^_^ )

So a 1978 Silvia is a 200SX, how about thyat ^_^ROFL

Yeah, we got a version here of just about every Datsun that the rest of the world did except for the Skyline and a lot of the commercial vehicles.

I stand corrected after doing further research. I guess I was being tunnel visioned since we didn't get a U.S. Stanza badged model until 1982.

That's one of the best written Wikki's I've read yet.

Well, if you ever read a bad wiki feel free to make it better. For instance, the Stanza entry was edited by quite a few people:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Nissan_Stanza&action=history

Even so, there's probably something in there that you could contribute or improve upon.

The one piece on the front looks like a piece I have in my garage. I got it from a friend when I was stationed in Japan and have not paid attention to it until I saw it on this car and one on a picture of a car in Alan Thomas' collection.

Thyats cool ^_^

I knew I liked that car for a reason. The more I looked at the front the more I saw it ment bussiness.

You mean the front spoiler part or the whole thing as in like tha slats and stuff.

Seems like they blended the front to the side fenders but don't know from where to where.

Basically that's because fairlady isn't a word, and there is just one sound for both L and R in Japanese. So the translator translates it to what it thinks it should be - Fair Ready !

Alan, I think I'll just wait and see how high the reserve is. I would think too rich for my blood!

Yeah and Silvia becomes Sil Beer !:eek:
