Going to post a couple of more of the Terry Davey Haynes covers, rather different cars.
First is the Datsun 280ZX, which was a real slug from what I remember here.

Second is the little Dodge Colt from 1980. These were pretty neat little cars, as they were based on the Mitsubishi model.

A popular racer in your neck of the woods, I think, Tom. Didn't Mr Paul Newman race one of these?

Tom... I am sure those beasties were named Nissan!
Datsuns, were the tinny, scrappy bonk thingies from ten years before !!!

I worked for Datsun/Nissan as test driver for the first series of Bluebirds, which became the staple
Thai Taxi.
Ran the shit out of them within 1000 miles on a test track before NMC realised they weren't building anything capable of being a taxi.
Fiat tried it with the 1500, and I ran the thing in the ground.
Managed to bounce a 1500 over an embankment so hard the battery came unlodged and shorted against the bonnet !!
Haha .....I have had some laughs in life !!!

2nd generation Bluebird made it but you had to do some Fred Flinstone footwork after 5 years to help move it along
'cos the floor would have rusted through,..but hey a well used taxi need replacing every 5 years don't it ?

You've got me there.

I do remember though, spending a lot of time 'researching' (a phrase which I know is rapidly becoming a cliche on tnf) on the brilliant Mark Windecker site, http://mwphotos.home...d.com/home.html which Tom would enjoy anyway, if he is not already familiar with it . And I'm sure I remember lots of wonderful photographs of 1980's Datsun Turbos etc, racing in the US.

The Datsun name was used for quite a long time in the US market. I have a 1977 Datsun 280Z in my stable - nice car. The 280ZX was the next model, debuting for the 1979 model year. Same drivetrain but different body/chassis, even though it was styled somewhat the same. And yes Tom, it was a slug in my opinion as well. It was the result of Nissan deciding to go after the personal luxury vehicle market. Can't really fault them as they sold a ton of them. When Nissan dropped the Datsun name in the US they did so over a period of a few years while badging their cars with both names; "Datsun by Nissan" or something like that.
Paul Newman drove the 280Z race cars but I don't remember if he also drove the later 280ZX cars.

A less than complete list of the vehicles Paul drove confirms that Paul drove Datsun 280 Z, ZX, ZX turbo and 300 ZX turbo's from '79 to '83 before racing a Nissan 300 ZX turbo in 1984.

Running one of those prepped cars was very different from the street versions. The street cars were pretty doggy.

Hi Roy,
Glad your post reappeared a I missed it the first time around. Nice work! Will it be used a poster, advert, etc?
Yes indeed a cutaway of one of those beasts would be interesting. Hope we get to see one.
Joe


Hopefully I will do a cutaway of one of these. Most are still rebuilding for start of new season next month and all are up in North of England a fair distance from me, fingers crossed.

Have tried to sell posters, but in order to get rpice down would need to order bulk print run, so catch 22, spend loads to sell etc. or sell one or two.

cheers for comments

Roy

I used to have a lot of experience with cabs when I went to New York or Chicago for the toy and hobby shows. Even those big Checkers were horrid. Any proximity of the door to the door opening was merely a suggestion. Wind or rain coming in was like the windows were left open. But they didn't rust overly quickly, and the Chevy motors tended to hold together reasonably well.
I always wondered why those things were so unique, and looked like a Zil or Moskavich or some Russian car out of the 40s. Turns out the guy at Checker was actually an ex-Russian that had come over to work for Checker. They were primarily a stamping source for the automotive industry, and went into the cabs for a finished product.
I know that, when they were selling those to the public as the Marathon, the dealers would offer the prospective a freeway ride out here, just so they could see that the windnoise was as if there were no doors on the car, just so they weren't being expected to try to repair the things.
Can't imagine anything lighter than this being used for cabs, but the English have always had rather distinctive old-timey looking things that seemed to work pretty well. Not sure how we got saddled with those loads of crap over the years.

I bought one complete set to my collection. Overall impression - a great artist and not a very careful design and printing.
Once again I want to warn - specify in advance with the seller the quality of polygraphy (ask for printing on matte paper!!).

I am unable to confirm whether that is the case Roger, but I'm sure someone will know. However, I believe the example below, is very definitely the system that you refer to, as later used by Vauxhall.

4 Ibsen's index,..it is a Michael Stirm drawing

I should have more of Stirm's work as he was apparantly the house artist for Auto und Motor Sport,
and I subscribed for umpteen years.
I know he did lots of engine cutaways, as well as imaginative renderings when rumours of new stuff
cropped up. I'll be digging up the loft/attic and Shurguard place again soon.

edit...it is probably Auto Motor und Sport


This is quite I cool engine cutout of a really big engine, Thanks Macoran :up: :)

Only trouble is all my friends would just egg me on to buy more.

Chris, take a look at these Rex Burnett prints. http://www.roddersjo...a...=page&id=44
While not the high art of Tony Matthews, they are an example of the cutaway art of cars of a particular era.
But be forewarned their idea of signed and numbered means a signed and numbered 'postcard' of authenticity. The prints themselves are NOT individually signed or numbered. Still the price is quite good. Just don't consider them a limited edition. My set arrived damaged and has been returned for replacement. If you troll a few pages back on this thread you will find my posts concerning my experience with these prints thus far. I will update everyone when the replacment set arrives.
Actually I would encourage you to start at the beginning and read the thread in it's entirety. Lots of history chronicled herein.
Cheers.

Going to put up three Terry Davey pieces this evening, starting with another Datsun, the 810 model out of 1980. That seems a bit late for the Datsun name, but that is what the manual used for the cover title.
