yes, same as the Pulsar you guys got,
Don't be put off by that though, these do handle really well and nice and comfy to drive, I plan on dropping a 5 speed in it and maybe a 1.3 because i don;t think the 1.0 will pull the 5 speed to well.

We make an exception for the Datsun Cherry around here (and Datsun forklifts, which are also front wheel drive).
