If you've ever wondered how much I want one of these tiny little front-drive twin carb'd Datsun Cherry X-1s, the answer is extremely very much yes a thousand times yes.

Here's a look at that 1.2 liter engine.

83 horsepower! At least as this site claims. Yes there were big bore racing versions and they're cool but I'm afraid of going too far down the japanese nostalgic car rabbit hole. I don't want to be racing a Fuji Grand Prix period replica pretending I'm some spry 1960s bank manager with a dream.

A tiny rev-happy sedan is enough for me.
