Datsun is calling on all fans – new and old – as it announces the public opening of the famous museum of car-enthusiast, Freek de Kock. For the first time, de Kock’s collection of more than 118 Datsun and Nissan vehicles – spanning decades – will be accessible to everyone.
The museum, located in Bothaville, South Africa, was started by de Kock in 2007. It claims to be the largest private collection of Nissan and Datsun vehicles outside Japan and features a number of world-renowned models including an orange Datsun 240Z, the 1200 GX, the Laurel and the Pulsar.
Freek is a life-long Datsun fan and started collecting vehicles nearly a decade ago, when his two sons took over the family business, giving him more time to focus on his passions in his spare time.
Now, de Kock is ready to share his passion with fellow car enthusiasts and passers-by.
