Datsun Talking Box Uses Tiny Phonograph

From Jalopnik comes this bit of 80′s retro coolness.

The Datsun 810 (well that’s what they say in the post but it looks like a 910 to me) and 280zx in the US came with a feature where the car warned you with more than just buzzes and beeps, but with voice!

But to add to the coolness factor, the voice isn’t done with solid-state electronic wizardry like we’ve become accustomed to, but with a tiny record player!
