Yeah my dad was Datcars , he was the only mechanic when the dealership first got started in a dark , no light workshop in Victoria Park , Perth , Western Australia , late 60s . The Datsun dealership then moved to the suburb of Morley ,corner of Walters road and Russel street , in the early 1970s .
Closed down in 1980 with the changing of the name Datsun to Nissan .

Well my dad was the service manager at Datcars and when he had to sack some employee , that Datcars badge was most likely one of the last things they saw .
One story my dad told me was about some car cleaner called Fattie , ( who wasn't actually fat ) who spent to much time on his lunch break.
One of the first Kentucky fried chicken stores had just opened in W.A and the store was across the road from Datcars . Still there .
Big lines of people waiting to be served , well he couldn't get enough of KFC , he loved the stuff , and was returning late every day , most times was
walking back with a chicken drum stick in hand .
My dad called him in .
"Whats more important your job cleaning cool Datsuns or filling your face ."
Next day Fattie couldn't help himself .

"YOUR FIRED , FRIED CHICKEN " !

True story .

hERES the funny bit , i suppose , after that Fattie stormed out , got his 21 bucket of fried chicken
and did a Kevin Sheedy , swinging the bucket and letting it fly , the flying fried chicken in the air and over the Datsun car yard .

Dad says Fattie got a job at Kentucky fried chicken and worked himself to became a manager and ended up being a millionaire .

I heard a disgruntled ex datcars employee bought it to spite the old service manager who sacked him for been late back from lunch. That badge was the last thing he remembered seeing as he considered his options for unfair dismissal.
But instead he got even by making millions of his own. But he felt something missing. Until he bought that badge.
