Passed the annual APK test again !

Today I went to Nissan dealer Manenschijn (http://www.datsun.nl) for the annual APK test.
This is something similar to the English MOT test.











It was a sunny day and made it a nice drive through to the woods behind Ommen in the direction Daarle.

At about 09.30 I arrived at Nissan Manenschijn at Daarle.

Mr. G.J. Manenschijn started off with the checks needed for the APK.

We also did an oil and oilfilter renewal and also renewed the brakepads of the front wheels.




This wasn't actually nessesary for the APK, but since these pads weren't that much no more, I requested for a change, just to make sure.




In the meanwhile,
while G.J. Manenschijn was busy doing the maintenance, I was allowed to have a look in the Datsun Museum that Jan Manenschijn maintains in their other companybuilding, on the other side of the Wierdenseweg, see the picture below;

  • Wierdenseweg, Daarle

Inside this building, whilst accessing the first floor, it seems that time has stood still for a while.
Here you can admire the Datsun cars from the seventies and even some sixties !

Jan Manenschijn allowed me to show off some pics on this page to you from what's inside their personal Datsun museum. For more information about the cars you should contact Nissan Manenschijn.


  • Here are a few pictures, just to have a little impression;




































































This is just a small impression of all the cars which are in the museum. I also took pictures from the interieurs of some cars which will follow later into another post of this blog.

My own 100A is ready for another year of pleasure I hope, anyway, momentarily the car runs great !

Hello,
Greetings from Finland.
I also found this blog by searching about 100A from Google.

There my toy tin can, taken good care with. Mileage pass over 70 000km two months ago. Though Finnish summer is short and only little snow, that next photo is from October 2006.

I'm quite happy with it but I wish to have similar vintage right sidemirror for safety reasons.
