1979 Datsun 310 from North America
A great dependable little car
This car has few faults. I have had minor problems with the linkage in the five speed transmission.
This 1979 Datsun 310 could have gone to the Moon and back. The engine is unstoppable. The car starts rain or shine and get over 35 m.p.g. This car has been very dependable and economical to run. My wife and kids could not say enough about me owning this little "blue bomb". I have been able to use the car like a "Texas pickup", for hauling everything. The hatchback gives you all the room to haul a refrigerator. The sadness that I have today,after twenty years of owning this car, is having to say "goodbye". This car has been steady at the wheel as President Reagan was. If I would have said to this Datsun, "Tear down this wall" she would have given all to do it. I am parting with this car as I have donated it to Volunteers of America. My Datsun will be greatly missed in our yard.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have an 81 Datsun 310 GX hatchback and I just wanted to say I agree in full on what you say about 310. Its true, they are perfect for any day of the year. I have recently converted my exhaust to 2' with an afterburner performance muffler. The thing sounds awesome. From one 310 lover to another. I salute you!
