Doomed Datsun 610 Remembers When People Drove Small Japanese Wagons

Illustration for article titled Doomed Datsun 610 Remembers When People Drove Small Japanese Wagons

It was Half Price Day at the local self-service yard last weekend, and I had my eye on a Porsche 928 that had been there the week before, thinking I could buy that purty Porsche intake manifold to hang on my wall. Sadly, the 928 had already gone to The Crusher, so I decided I might as well check for other interesting stuff... and, sure enough, here was a super-rare '74 Datsun 610 wagon. The L20B is still there, and so is the factory 8-track player. Well, the 8-track was there, since I felt compelled to grab it. After buying all those 8-track tapes for the Junkyard Boogaloo Boombox, I need a backup deck!

I like it. Wish we'd see more of these driving around still.
