During the industrial revolution in Japan, many independent carmakers popped up, and DAT Motorcar was one of them. In 1931, DAT Motorcar started to call its compact cars "Datson," meaning son of DAT, as opposed to their larger DAT cars. Nissan took over DAT Motorcar in 1934 and changed its name to Datsun, and the rest is history. Petrolicious recently documented two incredible 1960s Datsun Roadsters in Napa Valley, San Francisco. Both vehicles are examples of tireless restoration, reviving the glory of the compact sports car. Sit back and turn the volume up high to enjoy the unforgettable sounds of the carburetor's roar in the video below.
