With a twin-carb inline 6-cylinder engine, capable of 151HP, the Z proved to both US and European manufacturers that when it came to sportscars, Japan was a powerful contender.

1987 Nissan Pathfinder

Pathfinder made Nissan and 4x4 adventure synonymous. Back in ’87, it came with two doors, a massive tailgate, and a huge appetite – as well as ability - for getting into those out of the way places.

1959 Datsun 1000

Chrome, tailfins and V8s reigned supreme in ‘59, but that didn’t stop Datsun from going to market with this plucky compact truck. Despite a diminutive 1000cc, 37HP engine, it could haul a quarter-ton, and looked like a million.
