The problem with so many seriously hot-rodded Japanese cars these days is that the owners generally feel compelled to make the things look like they're ready to compete in a rally on Mars Base, circa 2082. Sure, they've got a lot of sap (thank you, John Steinbeck, and we're going to try to use the term "sap" more), but there's nothing like a nice sleeper that's packing at least three times the number of factory horses while still looking reasonably stock. Let's face it, sleepers rule. So it's satisfying to see this Australian-based Datsun B210 (aka 120Y) with a sap-enhanced SR20DET stuffed under the hood. The faded mustard-colored paint is just perfect, although we'd prefer to see stock wheels and Datsun dog-dishes for true sleeperness; might even be worth sacrificing a dozen or so horses for a Q-shipe-esque quiet exhaust. Make the jump to see a tantalizing- yet maddeningly frustrating- video of the car demonstrating a tiny portion of its Sap Potential...
