This really does look like the grandchild of the lovely Marina. Which makes me wonder where I'd be if my first car was a Marina instead of a 210?

I am continually amazed how many of these old Datsuns I see around here in Oregon

Definitely the Japanese brother of the Marina, design wise.

These cars were definitely solid mechanically. I used to live in Arizona and still see them running around when I go back for vacation. I live in the Midwest now and you never see them. The drive train was great, but they rusted out pretty quick with the salt on the roads.

You can feel the history just by looking at this cars. Yes they are old, yes they are terrible to drive and yes they are terrible to live with, but if you put some money and effort to it you can make them look great and be a proud owner of a historical piece of machinery. You can easily locate one of those. just look here for some spyware application that you can use.
