Welcome to Paper Jam, the feature where we highlight the best automotive advertisements from the past! Print might be nearly dead, but our scanners are just getting warmed up.


Do you like your doors open w-i-d-e? You’re in luck, because our doors certainly open w-i-d-e, unlike some other car’s doors, which open n-a-r-r-o-w. Add fresh body lines, snappy performance and interior roominess to that picture, and the reduced emissions will feel like a sweet bonus. Less money spent on gas, more protection all around, and a rally-proven engine. Call it the 710 or the 160J Violet, it’s brilliant either way.

Call your Datsun dealer at your Nissan dealer. It will work out.
