Datsun Sivia 1980

This is the one and only site on the WWW about the legendary DATSUN SILVIA / 180SX
This car is also called the 200SX
This type of car was build in the years from 1979 until 1983.
First under the name 180SX and later under the name SILVIA.
I must say: it's the greatest car Nissan ever made.
And I'm the one who knows, because I had three of them.
