I had a '80 Datsun 210 in one of the ugliest colors known to man. It was called "Mesa Tan" or something like that, but it looked like a horrible shade of orange to me.I have a theory that those ugly little Datsun's kept running for spite. My older cousin had a like a 79 or 80 Datsun and drove it forever. Of course that had to be bad for his game :smile2:
Funny story, when I went to the dealership to buy it, there was exactly one of them in the showroom, so that the dealer could advertise a low starting price point. If you were willing to pay an extra $1000, you could get another forward gear (4th, I think), an FM radio, better tires and a slightly better color (real tan instead of orange). He really didn't want to sell me that car; I had to threaten him with calling the FTC to get him to sell it to me!
I think this color is very similar to that one:
