The reborn Datsun brand doesn't come close to the originals from Japan.
The Datsun name may be back, but the spirit of the original brand is not. Instead of being fun-to-drive sports cars, compact pickups and sedans, the new Datsun revived by Nissan is purely for emerging markets, such as Brazil and India. Needless to say, the new Datsun is anything but fun. So for good memory’s sake, we’ve created a gallery of photos featuring some of the original Datsun greats, such as the 240Z, 510 and Roadster. We’d happily drive any of these classics every day if we could.
