Actually, this was the coolest Datsun sports car. The 1600 or 2000 Fairlady. It would kick the @ass of any Triumph or MG and didn't break down every 100 miles.

Speaking of flying under the radar - a hot tip in the early '80s was to order a Mustang LE with the 5.0 liter V8 instead of a six. You had a nice little Q-ship, and if your insurance company didn't ask too many questions, you got cheaper insurance to boot.
I have another hot tip. That body style of Mustang was total shyte.

Hey, by the standards of the day, it was OK.
We had an 80 Mustang with the 2.3 4cylinder. By 60K miles the power steering rack had to be replaced. After that it was a regular stream of repairs. Though the engine itself held up just about everything else broke at one time or another. Since the Japanese had managed to make cars that didn't do that for at least a decade it was inexcusable. That car soured me on Fords to this day.
