Nothing could top the massive activities last year at Monterey when Nissan was the featured marque at Laguna Seca.  It’s an event we will always remember thanks to Nissan and the amazing Datsun and Nissan fans!

Our primary focus during Monterey Week this year will be the American unveiling of the DeTomaso P72.  An homage to the Shelby – DeTomaso P70 Brock designed in Italy in 1964, the P72 is a stunner.
