  1. I recently bought a load more old photos off eBay. Taken by a man from Cinderford, Gloucestershire called John Powell who has now died and his son is offloading what seems to be thousands of shots taken over the years (at the time of writing he still has 800 listed, and is adding more every day). Big stuff seemed to be his preference, but to be honest there's all sorts. His son said he was a lorry driver and used to take photos when he was out and about, at shows etc. He apparently owned a few Datsuns himself over the years, so was clearly a man of great taste and wisdom. Seller's username on eBay is mjphotography2016. Here's a selection of what I've scanned-in so far, and if you don't like Datsun/Nissan then there are some others to come. 1969 Datsun 2000 Estate, BPX841G (1982) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr If there was only photo I could have bought it would have been this. Beyond the interest of it being a spectacularly rare car (maybe just one surviving estate here in the UK?), it was a former press car that was seen in Autocar: Datsun 1300 (510) and 2000 (130), Autocar 1969 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr What are the chances? DVLA says it lasted until 1986, pretty good going given its early history. 1984 Nissan 300ZX 2+2 Turbo B377NNX (1993) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1984 Nissan Cherry Turbo A966LDD (1984) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr Sporty(ish). Do like the CA in the background of the Cherry photo. 1972 Datsun 1200 Coupe DDD828L (1983) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1974 Datsun 120A Coupe PXS16M (1977) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1980 Datsun Cherry 1.2 Coupe LFH123V (1990) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1982 Datsun Cherry 1.2 Coupe KNY277W (1982) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr Classy coupes. 1984 Nissan Sunny 1.3 GS Jubilee A936KFH (1995) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1987 Nissan Sunny 1.6 SGX E598HAD (1998) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1987 Nissan Sunny 1.6 ZX 16V, E469PTX (1989) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1988 Nissan Pulsar NX SE, E373NRE (1997) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr '80s Sunnys (Or Sunnies? Somehow that doesn't look right.) The last one is an oddity, looks to be US-spec and that model was notable for having interchangeable rear bodywork. 1975 Datsun 160J SSS, JFH202N on rally 4/11/78 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1979 Datsun 160J SSS, WOU85T (2000) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1979 Datsun 140J Violet JDF141V (1982) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1983 Datsun Stanza 1.6 GL Saloon, A584FDD (1984) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr I can only assume the last two photos were of cars he owned/hired, the captions say they were taken up in Scotland. 1977 Datsun 180B, WSF323R (1977) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1978 Datsun 180B SSS, TVP205S (20/2/83) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1979 Datsun 180B, EFH270T (1998) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1980/81 Datsun Bluebird 1.8 SSS Coupe, 221DOC (1981) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1982/83 Datsun Bluebird 1.8 GL, ADD247Y (2006) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr RWD Bluebirds. I do like the later SSS model, that's always been a personal favourite of mine. It would seem from DVLA that the older SSS did get repaired after its boulder interface. 1985 Nissan Bluebird Maxima 1.8, C357RWP (1987) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1989 Nissan Bluebird ZX Turbo, F661GYC (2007) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1991 Nissan Primera 1.6 L, H5DCM (1998) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1992 Nissan Primera 2.0e GT, K492CWC (1993) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr FWD Bluebirds, and Primeras. The GT is still taxed and tested, so far it's the only I've found where that's the case. 1987 Nissan 300C (Y30), 21/12/99 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr Mr Powell's preference seems to have been for bigger cars, so there are a lot more Laurels, Skylines and Cedrics to come. 1973/74 Honda Civic, 13/7/74 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1986 Mazda 626 2.0 GLX by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1973 Mazda RX-3 Coupe, 13/7/74 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1973/74 Mazda RX-3, 13/7/74 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr 1973 Mazda RX-4 Coupe, 13/7/74 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr I think the rally photos were all from the Avon/Motor Tour of Britain. More to come, as and when.
