Starting in the 1978 model year, the front-wheel-drive replacement for the B210— known as the B310 within Nissan— kept the “210” name in the United States (meanwhile, you could also buy “510s” that were actually A10 Violets), later evolving […]

Today, we’ll look at a fairly solid example of the B210 coupe. This is a car that was once as numerous on American streets as is any mainstream 21st-century econobox today, but the […]

Unfortunately, the price for such a low sticker was dearer than its four-digit sticker. The lack of modern essentials like air conditioning, anti-lock brakes and automatic transmission were more than just […]
