1979 Datsun B-210 Review
Precious — This was my first real car. She took me to work and college. She gave her life to save mine in a big roll over accident. The B-210 was not fast, but would hit 95 downhill with a tail wind. Never had problems with the car and easy to work on (oil changes and such).
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Great little car. Very reliable and fun to drive
Cons: A little small on space.

Nissan - Enjoy The Ride...for 30 Years Or More.
