Nissan (or Datsun) isn’t known for aggressive car names. This for instance, is a Datsun Bluebird. What other cars does Nissan have? Well, the Fairlady was named after the Broadway Musical “My Fair Lady”, Skyline basically means the outline of a city against the sky, and the Silvia is a derivation of the word “Sylvia” which is a scientific genus term for a class of birds. When Americans name their cars it’s usually something like Viper, Charger, Barracuda, or Demon. Even if it was going to have the word ‘Bird’ in it, it would be something like the Ford THUNDERbird or the Plymouth SUPERbird. But behind those subtle names by Nissan are some really good cars which have created waves in the auto industry.
What’s The Appeal Of A 510?
As a kid, it’s hard to like a car like the 510. It’s a classic three-box look. As a kid, you liked supercars and monster trucks, cars with scissor doors, outrageous stereo systems, or even something with big wings. For most us, there was a time when 17 inch wheels were not big enough. As a kid, you would solely compare cars by their top speed and maximum power output, because you’ve never actually driven a car. You were at the age of automotive virginity and Need for Speed Underground 2 and the Fast and Furious franchise were not helping much.
So what’s there to like about the 510?
The 510 is a beautiful car. And we were lucky to have a closer look at this one, thanks to Ikmal. With a short front overhang and long rear overhang, I think it kind of looks like a BMW 2002 Turbo from some angles.
