Comments - Unique of the Week: 1970 Datsun Bluebird SSS Coupe

Published: Dec 29, 2012
Description: Datsun is a brand name that's likely much more familiar to Baby Boomers than Millennials. It renamed itself Nissan in 1981. With the exception of car fans, Datsun is a name with little to no mean...

Hey Wayne, I have a 1969 Datsun 510, but I didn't know they built them roughly 100 years before that! Just kidding. I know what you mean about dimes - they were made to drive sideways.
Wayne Joseph Borean Dec 29, 2012
I had a 1872 Datsun 510. Fantastic handling car, I was able to scare the wits out of people by driving it sideways (yes, sideways) down the road. The only fault with the car was that like most cars of the era it rusted out.
Nick Schnee Dec 29, 2012
SSS. Because naming your car S or SS is too mainstream.
Alvaro Perez Dec 31, 2012
How long has this fight been going on
Jack Howard Dec 31, 2012
I actually agree with Jack on that one. The main reason I don't like Lambos is that all the rappers and shit get them
Aaron Crisp Dec 31, 2012
I can't wait for Christmas break to be over so Jack can go back to school and stop being a pest!
John Hyland Dec 31, 2012
@Jack: and also, name one person in Hollywood that's gay that owns a Lambo
Jack Howard Dec 31, 2012
And we have had BMWs
Jack Howard Dec 31, 2012
You specifically say "BMW M3
John Hyland Dec 31, 2012
@Jack: my parents have a brand new 750li and I have a 2009 Audi A5. I actually like my car better
Dhruv Cb Dec 31, 2012
I love BMWs and own one but don't fight for it.
Aaron Crisp Dec 31, 2012
@Jack Dude! Go play Xbox live and get off CarBuzz.
John Hyland Dec 30, 2012
Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah BMW's suck blah blah blah blah blah
Alvaro Perez Dec 30, 2012
Learn how to shut the fuck up
Alvaro Perez Dec 30, 2012
I wonder if jack brandon is in his parent basement playing need for speed and is acting like a he's bad ass with his virtual BMW
Jack Howard Dec 30, 2012
And Europe has great luxury and performance cars. I meant to put that in with the other comment.
Jack Howard Dec 30, 2012
America has best bang for your buck and trucks. Japan has great economical and reliable cars. There are some variables but that is the basic thing.
Jack Howard Dec 30, 2012
You still fail to see what we are doing. We aren't bashing European cars nor saying America or Japan is better. They all have their places and each is good for something the other is not.
Jordan Smith Dec 30, 2012
Anyways, I like this car. It's a sweet little Japanese ride that I'd love to have. Maybe as a track car.
Jordan Smith Dec 30, 2012
Damn I missed another argument.
Jack Howard Dec 30, 2012
Get your head out of your ass. Listen to Carlton and William and understand that they know way more than you will for a long ass time.
Aaron Crisp Dec 30, 2012
There's only enough room in this app for one Jack.
Jack Howard Dec 30, 2012
Dammit Jack, you are ruining my name.
John Hyland Dec 30, 2012
@Jack: have you ever once left a comment on here that wasn't with intent to piss people off? Grow up
William Downs Dec 30, 2012
And Carlton sneaks in for the K.O
Carlton Salmon Dec 30, 2012
...you learn to drive a variety of cars like I have. I've driven more than 200 different vehicles over 30 years so at least I can have a valid first hand opinion on what I'm talking about. I suggest before your next comment that you do the same.
Carlton Salmon Dec 30, 2012
...a certain marque is incredibly immature and narrow-minded - especially as you have absolutely no knowledge or experience of the cars you've mentioned other that what you've read in a magazine or seen on tv. Before hating on others I'd suggest...
Carlton Salmon Dec 30, 2012
...of exotic cars and those who regularly have to work on their old crap car just to keep it on the road. We all have dreams of owning something special, Jack, and to slag off someone who simply doesn't have the same enthusiasm as you for...
Carlton Salmon Dec 30, 2012
Jack, I have been a BMW owner for nearly 28 years and true lover of the marque - but I would never bash anyone who doesn't like them or any other car. This app is for car enthusiasts from all walks of life - rich and poor; those with a garage full...
Donte Perino Dec 30, 2012
Sorry Jack, but you are horribly incorrect. Have a nice day!
Aaron Crisp Dec 30, 2012
Any person that has ever commented on CB > Jack
William Downs Dec 30, 2012
And those aren't my opinions that information from a master mechanic at BMW, and is a prime example of what first hand expierence offeres versus what u read and see on tv
William Downs Dec 30, 2012
Ehhh you could if u wanted to tim but its gonna require a second hand cars price of specialty tools to maintain and work on them, not to mention u better be an electrical wiz to chase down those world famous BMW shorts... 50% of BMW services at dealerships are electrical related, after that its random sensor failures, hydraulic problems in the motor and cooling system problems
Tim Puckett Dec 30, 2012
@jack you know what you can't do on a BMW Mr. Prestigious college? Work on the goddamn thing your self is Is that something you can do with your pos BMW? No, didn't think so
William Downs Dec 30, 2012
Time to grow up, u say your mature and love cars but u dont, people that love cars love and respect all cars, not bash on everything that not BMW and call it trash.
William Downs Dec 30, 2012
Knowledge is earned threw expierence, with hands on expierences not just what u read in magazine witch are never biased towards certain car company's... no not ever
William Downs Dec 30, 2012
Hahahah omg I'm dying from laughter, this jack kid is hilarious, your mature... rite, and I can fly like super man. Its not N opinion when u constantly attack others cars that aren't BMW and insult the people that like them cause they do t want a BMW... guess what everyone like different things but how would u know, you were raised a snobby little bitch and will grow up being an immature snobby li...
Patrick Schalk Dec 30, 2012
Jack, lets face it, you are 13, still living off mommy and daddy, haven't had the real world slap you in the face yet, and are most likely bullied at school so you take your anger out on CarBuzz.
Aaron Crisp Dec 30, 2012
@David Amen, credibility is gone. Jack is the new worst fanboy on here. So much ignorance.
David Hicks Dec 30, 2012
Another article where Jack has used BMW to try and bash a Japanese manufacturer, all credibility has gone out the window and now Jack will be labelled as a BMW fanboy.
Dhruv Cb Dec 30, 2012
Jack so the nsx gtr and the supra are overrated? You're an underrated douche. But I give you 5/5 for being a douche
Michael Henderson Dec 30, 2012
At least this isn't fugly like a modern BMW. Babies vomit and grown men start to cry when the see the front of a BMW, they are hideous looking cars. Im also aware that there are fans of them on here so im prepared for the offensive from those now.
Aiden Bass Dec 30, 2012
Jack. U MAD BRO? Jesus dude this is a fucking CAR APP, not American car, european car, Korean car, but ALL FUCKING CARS.
Thomas William Tuer-sipos Dec 30, 2012
It's a suped up Oliver!!!!
Patrick Schalk Dec 29, 2012
Jack I wish I could explain how idiotic that statement is. But someone else will probably do it for me
Alex Renaud Dec 29, 2012
Hey Jack, have you driven one of these cars (or any of the ones that you mentioned), and driven then very hard? If not, your statements have no foundation.
Jorge Gonzalez Dec 29, 2012
I like these for some reason, any given day or season. See I can rap too.
Bader Al Ajeel Dec 29, 2012

Lucas Hill Dec 29, 2012
Looks great besides that yellow paint. Haha, rhymes
Jon Ashley Dec 29, 2012
nice, I saw one of theses at a gas station about a year ago
Alex Renaud Dec 29, 2012
As much as I like the PL510, I was not a fan of the taillights on the SSS Coupe.
Greg Lewis Dec 29, 2012
Awesome exhaust lol
Ron Vinson Dec 29, 2012

All of the 510s/Bluebirds/1600s (same car, just different names for different markets) came from the factory with a 1.6L L16 inline 4 cylinder engine. The drivetrain on these cars was virtually indestructible.
Allen Kim Dec 31, 2012
Love it
Alvaro Perez Dec 30, 2012
Simply a classic beauty
Jake Trumbull Dec 30, 2012
Good look
Carlton Salmon Dec 30, 2012
I love the clean, simple and attractive lines on this car.
Jackson Bond Jan 24, 2013
I would honestly take a classic over a new model, Japanese or European
Wyatt Gordon Dec 31, 2012

Alvaro Perez Dec 31, 2012

James Salaba Dec 31, 2012
Sorry guys didn't mean to offend anyone! Just my opinion!
Alvaro Perez Dec 30, 2012
Shit just got real
Jordan Smith Dec 30, 2012
I understand everyone has their own opinion but I have never heard anyone say the R8 is ugly till now.
Jack Howard Dec 30, 2012
Did he dare say the R8 was ugly😑🔫
James Salaba Dec 30, 2012
To colby r8 is ugly and maybe bmw m3 e46 I would take but that's only one BMW that is worth of anything
Chris Gaines Dec 30, 2012
lol jack, was it that hard to post that second comment and stop making useless sweeping generalizations? im sure of you look hard enoughaap
Keelynn Arnold Dec 30, 2012
Or freaking mustangs......
William Downs Dec 30, 2012
Cause no one is overly obsessed with European cars * cough* jack *cough*
Colby Church Dec 29, 2012
Really James? You would take this over a R8 or a new M6? That's pretty silly bro. Haha
James Salaba Dec 29, 2012
Would take this over any Audi or BMW
Larry Martino Dec 29, 2012
This is perfect with the modern engine and wheels with the classic lines. Im in love
David Guerrero Dec 29, 2012
Agreed, faves are the E30 and 240z. Only old cars I like.
Ray Moreno Dec 29, 2012
Maaaan I don't know about all you out there, but I love me a 60-70s coupe 3 series and Datsuns mmmmm.

I almost forgot, at a car meet I saw another 510 with an 3 rotor TT swap from a 91 RX7. It was set up for the 1/4 mile. I forgot the times he said he was running.
Description: This particular 1970 Datsun Bluebird SSS is currently up for sale, but the $40,000 asking price may cause some to walk away. However, it still warrants a closer look for a number of reasons. This one ...

Yeah, a lot of guys get these things down to 1800lbs dry - that's my plan.
Coleman DuCharme Dec 29, 2012
200 hp in a car this light? Sounds nice.
Jack Howard Dec 31, 2012
Yes I understand.
Luis Daniel Angilello Dec 31, 2012
Wait! None of my previous comments made sense.... Ok what I meant to say is that there are cars with 4 pedals, and if you were learning to drive and you found 4 pedals in the car.... You'd shit your pants. Better?
Luis Daniel Angilello Dec 31, 2012
The 4th pedal would be the "hand" brake pedal...
Luis Daniel Angilello Dec 31, 2012
You'd shit your pants when you see a car with 4 pedals! LOL!!

@Jack you should have said jk because you had me worried for a second
Jack Howard Dec 29, 2012
I was kidding. I know how do drive a manual
Austin Whitener Dec 29, 2012
Most kids now days only know park drive and reverse ( automatic) most haven't even heard of an Manuel transmission
David Guerrero Dec 29, 2012
If you don't know what 3 pedals are for... You don't belong here. All real cars have 3 pedals (except super cars). This is not a place for Prius drivers who don't know what a clutch is. Sorry.
Chushen Jin Dec 29, 2012
Clutch?
Jack Howard Dec 29, 2012
What's that third pedal for?
William Downs Dec 30, 2012
I'm with Alex love it when people keep a period engine in the car all tuned up, makes it that much better
Alex Renaud Dec 29, 2012
It's too bad that the owner didn't keep with a period correct engine, such as a hyper modified L16, or a L24 straight 6 from a S30 Z car (after some big mods to the firewall).
Ray Moreno Dec 29, 2012
Yummmm.
William Downs Dec 29, 2012
Yea I did... auto correct and car buzz wouldn't let me correct it
