The number of Datsun 710 wagons in this town is actually growing! This addition to our streets makes the fifth one that is still being driven regularly. I posted about number four here, and the full 710 CC is here. And I rather liked how this one is parked next to another RWD Nissan. Is the Infiniti G35/37 the spiritual heir to the legendary Datsun 510/610/710 family?
I’d like to think that some G buyers once owned a 510 or such. The Gs brought back the formula that made the original 510 such an icon, in a more grown-up format. One that Nissan foolishly abandoned for way too long, handing it over to BMW and such. But the G has done a credible job of reclaiming it, even if it seems to not be quite in the limelight thta it enjoyed when it first appeared.
Now if only a 710 sedan or coupe would appear. But then wagons are cool, and unfortunately, there’s no G-wagon. Come on Nissan; these 710 owners can’t keep driving these forever.
