I thought it was Datsun 610 for a minute. Those are better than the B210's. The 210's have a bad habit of the rear end flying off corners at higher speeds. The 610 was way better at not doing that, and had more solid suspension and brakes.

I sold my 210 two weeks after I bought it after it almost slid me into a guard rail. The 610 my friends called the Orange Julius. You can guess why. I dropped the L-20B into it with a Weber carb setup and it went like a bat out of hell. I wish I had that one back, too.

The Good Old Datsun days. Easy motor swaps, quickie power. Sometimes I really miss it. When my friend Ronnie and I pulled that L-16 from the 610 and dropped in the new L-20B, it only took us a cherry picker and 90 minutes from start to end and test driving. Now, that's fun.

1997 King Cab XE, 5-sp, canopy, AC/PS, KA24E, 114,000 miles. Need a technical manual? Drop me a message. Chilton's for amateurs.
