i like old cars and am on a small budget. tell me if going for a datsun 120y is a bad/good choice?
That car was never sold here in the states but they look interesting. If parts are available then why not? In general Datsun's were great little cars.
Try and find a car that is rust free, straight and complete. Body work is the most expensive thing to do when restoring a car. Little things that are missing can be impossible to find so a complete car can save you a lot of headaches.
