Datsun in the East African Safari Rally MEGA POST…

Over the past few weeks I have been collecting various photographs of any of the Datsuns that were campaigned in this rally and had to identify the drivers in question as most sources did not know who was who, so it has been another interesting topic for me to expand my knowledge on.

Not to mention the colour scheme. ๐Ÿ˜€
