Over 100 vehicles were driven through the streets of Yokohama, Japan, where Nissan’s headquarters are located, providing onlookers with a vivid display of the automaker’s history.
The oldest car was a 1935 Datsun 14 Phaeton whose owner transported the vehicle over 600 kilometers to be driven in the parade.
“We are here today to celebrate 80 years since the establishment of Nissan, and we have gathered cars from all ages. These cars are a testament to the history of Nissan, and the source of much innovation and excitement over the years,” said Toshiyuki Shiga, Nissan’s vice chairman.
“Today I feel that it is necessary for us to keep making and offering Nissan cars that people will cherish for a long time.”
The parade was the culminating event in a year of celebrations honoring eight decades of Nissan innovation.
We may not have been there for all 80 years, but at James Ceranti Nissan, we sure are grateful for Nissan’s rich history and the numerous advancements that have been made since 1933.
