1976 Datsun F10 Review
Piece Of Rolling Crap — I was getting divorced and needed a cheap car. Boy, it was cheap, all right. And it ran like one and caused problems like one. This thing had one type of metal for the head, and a different metal for the engine block and the expanded and contracted at different rates! I would only wish this car on one of my ex wives.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Cheap little car, good mileage
Cons: Piece of crap. Two blown head gaskets. Weird gearshift pattern. Could not pull the hat off your head. Unusually hard on tires. Torque steer was awful. Ugly as homemade sin.
