I’m gonna get up on my soap box and claim that this next car is too expensive. I’m not saying that someone won’t pay the owner a price close to the asking, but 15 large for a Datsun B210 that doesn’t have a trunk full of gold bullion is nuts. Yes, the car is in good shape, yes it has only 26k miles on the 5-digit odo, but this is a B210 which means it has the miserable 1.3 liter A13 overhead valve 4-banger which was a one-year-only engine, good luck getting parts to rebuild it when it hits 50k miles. And 75 horsepower is great in a ’59 Porsche Speedster or something pre-war, but in 1974 the typical Mustang had like 400 ft-lbs of torque and you’ll have a hard time keeping up with traffic in this pre-recycled tuna can. I’m sorry, I wish I could get behind this, but I’m gonna step off my soap box now and let you guys tell me why life is always sunny in a Sunny.
