Big power isn’t always needed to make a car impressive. Take this 1400 Datsun Sunny pick up for example.
Scene setting, I’m down in South Africa and I’ve managed to wangle a free morning to look for some impressive metal to shoot. After a quick visit to a supercar meet outside of Jo-burg I managed to hook up with a good friend (Darren from Speed & Sound Magazine) who told me about this great little ute – a few calls were made and the meet was on…
The Baby Yakusa is raw, home-built, but perfect in its creation. Built by @Brannigan101 everything around this pick up has a story and the attention to detail is unreal. It also helped me pop my cherry as I buzzed around the car, looking for angles and trying to capture the simplistic beauty of this JDM inspired Datsun – all while taking in the city-scape back drop of down town Johannesburg.
I love cars, always have. I’ve been lucky enough to make them my job as well as my hobby. But, one thing it’s given me is friends around the World. It’s that great common denominator that brings petrolheads together and the mutual respect of builds and hours of wrench time
I’ll hopefully be back on here soon – checking out more home-brew cars that are born from beers and backyard antics than multi-million pound R&D styling houses.
