Black Gold: Datsun 280Z

Check out this disco throwback TV commercial from 1980!

In 1980 Disco fever was raging like a musical epidemic across America! It was hot enough to help sell the stylish 1980 Nissan (then called Dastun) 280Z, 10th Anniversary Edition.

Throwback Thursday: Check out this classic Nissan truck ad from 1984!


"Come Alive, Come and Drive" says this classic 1984 magazine ad for the Nissan S/T. We can only guess that back in the 80's "Sand Dune Chic" consisted of big hair, leather bomber jackets, and baggy shorts. Oh, and check out the dude's cool aviator sun glasses and thick Tom Selleck mustache. All kidding aside, this Nissan S/T was a very popular, very affordable Southern California tough truck back in the day. It is now called the Nissan Frontier and it's still climbing dunes - with plenty of style!
