My sister had a 1974 datsun b210. Driving on the freeway one day the front spindle broke and nearly killed her!!!
there is a 1980 Datsun king cab down the street from me that the only thing not completely rusted away is the tires!!!
Yep, GREAT japanese cars.
I don't think many people bought them in the 70s, early 80s. I would have to see #s to believe that. But I guess since they were sooo unreliable that many people could buy them cheap and sometimes that is all that is important to the ignorant.
I had a 74 Vega wagon . . . it was a spare car I drove while modifying my REAL cars. It got me around reliably and with pretty decent mileage. It was a pretty dang good grocery getter, but did not impress the women. (and that was important at the time too. hahaha.Tim (ratchetmaster) moderator at http://www.gmforums.com
To answer your question directly, it was always my understanding that the car struggled to meet emissions regulations, and that these delays finally forced GM to put the car out to the marketplace, "ready or not".
