Ya I too would be happy had we gotten ANY of the bluebird series, my taste runs towards the 2 door as well. As far as the 2 door 910 goes though the 80-81 200sx imo looks close.

I think it's weird the maxima was synonymous with 910 everywhere but here where it was 810.

Unsubstantiated rumor had it that Porsche had trademarked 910 and 911 in the USA for its line, so Datsun went with "Maxima" in lieu of 910 for the American market. Screwy enough to be true.

We did get Bluebirds here. I recall the Datsun Bluebird TV commercials from when I was a kid in the 1960's. The U.S. model PL310, WPL310, PL311, WPL311, PL312, and WPL312 sedans and wagons all had fender emblems that said 'Bluebird' until April 63 when those badges were changed to 'Datsun'.

The Bluebird pictured there wasn't the only Nissan entry in the Australian touring car championship. They also had an N12 EXA (Pulsar NX in the N. American market)

Datsun 210s are very cool. In Japan there is a cult to this Datsun. There are races at major race tracks for Datsun 210 circuit.

Hope to motivate you into getting another 210. It would be a cool and unique project!

I didn't know a B210 could look so radical decked out as a rally car. I'm gonna have to get one.

I see you are in NC. I've been watching craigslist here for about the last year and all models of Dats pop up. Some get a little pricey but if you hold out you should be able to find what you want.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

I know i might get flamed for this, but If I ever got another B210, I think I would cut the wheel wells out a bit so I could put bigger wheels and tires on it. They look so squatty with the small wheel wells and tiny tires.
But other then that, I love the spoiler on the back, it just totally completes the car.
My B210, my dad got after he sold my first datsun truck which was a problem and a half and at the time i just needed a dependable vehicle, ended up having as many problems as my truck did. I wish i knew then what I knew now, i may have gotten my first truck fixed. I joined the national guard and went to basic training just so I could buy another motor for that truck, when I got home my dad had found the 210 and talked me into it. Don't know what ever happened to the truck, but it had a good windshield. guess I'll have to scan the picture and put it up.
It only takes one bad apple to spoil the whole bunch.
