my first motor was a datsun 120y in 1989 and it was a 1978 car and it was in hideous mustard colour and it had 666 on the plates and you would not beleive the nightmare it took 2.5mts to source somebody who would insure the car with the 666 plates crazy i know but seriously very very true it was just a nightmare
