Found this over at Borepatch‘s place…
I find I owned a couple of these, as is the story of my life it seems..An oddball always buying oddball stuff..
Had an 1989 Eagle, Medallion so not exactly this one..
But…it ran well for us. Put a lot of miles on it..but when it died at 70K it died and we were told to walk away from it as the serpentine belt broke and took the engine with it somehow…Never did figure that one out!
Also had this one, station wagon model and I take exception to it being on this list!!
75. 1974 Datsun F10: The first front-drive Nissan in America is legendarily ugly in both appearance and rough-hewn operation. Known as the Cherry in Japan.
Bought it during the 1st energy crisis! When gas approached a BUCK a gallon Never had a speck of trouble with it…Ran great, got great gas mileage and I had it for a number of trouble with it…Got super gas mileage up to 40 at times…Took it everywhere, including many hunting and fishing trips..
So tttthhhhhhbbbbbbttt to you for putting it on this list!!
Also had this one..
Towed my boat, went on many hunting trips, commuted with it, generally drove the hell out of it..and it never failed me, yes it gave me a couple of “OMG” moments…spinning around in a snowstorm one night, sliding in the ditch during another snowstorm and getting out luckily…but never left stranded stuck or otherwise needing to be rescued!!
