The 210 replaced the B210 as Datsun's basic economy car. It was reliable,got good gas mileage, and was practical: all it needed to be. For 1980, the 210 received the recognizable grill design shown here. Personally, I think the lights in the grill are a cool styling feature, and freshen up an otherwise mundane design. This 2-door sedan's chrome and paint still shine, and the gold pinstripe is a great accent on this car.
