Nissan/Datsun 300ZX 1984 & Paul Newman

Can you spot the two times Datsun is used? That’s right, Nissan is slowly changing over in their commercials from Datsun to Nissan.

How did Nissan celebrate their 50th anniversary? By bringing out the 300ZX with 6 cylinders.

And they have Paul Newman in #33 racing seat in 1985 for the GT-1 championship. This was Newman’s 4th national championship.
