The Datsun 510 is supposed to be the total rip of the BMW 2002, right? I've never driven either, but the Datsun just seems so much cooler. The Bimmer looks kind of ugly and blah to me (no flames please
). I don't like those single round big headlights and stuff... or the round rear ones. Maybe it's just me... didn't Datsun just reverse engineer the 2002 to build the 510?
I don't know exactly what it is though... even though the 2002 is a collector's car and worth more than the Datsun... if somebody gave me a choice ignoring price, I'd go with the 510 in a heartbeat.

And a lot of Eastern Bloc(k?)cars were pretty cool looking
What's your point?

I must say that I like the 510 a little more than the 2002 as well. But both are nice. The ability to drop a rotary in that 510 as well is just too damn cool and seals the deal for me. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
[edit] 510 is a Nissan, Rob, not a Mazda - therefore no rotary engine. But an SR20DET swap would be sweet.

The 510 rocks the 2002, especially with just about any of the numerous engine swaps available. Throw a KA24DE or a SR20DET
in there and DAYYYYYYAMN!
It also wins in the looks department. It's just classic Japanese old-school.

That 510 has been featured so many times I've lost count. He wants a grip for it, but the car is top-notch.
Oops, not the one I'm thinking of (Turbo Mag May 2001)! Wow those 2 cars are practically identical.
