Best is to use a single space between images. Details in this post on the problem. If you use a Carriage Return ("Enter") after each [IMG] tag, each pic will always be on a new row. If you use a space between successive tags, the browser can figure out the best way to display multiple images -- if the browser's current viewport width will accommodate more than one image on a row without hori scrolling, it will. But only if you "allow" that by not using <Enter>.

OK method

Is that an import model, or was it sold in the US originally?
I was wondering the same thing. I don't think the "810" badging on the trunk was normal for 82, was it?

The Japanese model (Bluebird 910) is different from the firewall forward. They added 3" between the wheel opening and the door to accommodate the 6-cyl engine. The Bluebirds had a 4 cyl.

Oh yes. Your 82 is fantastic! Not many look like that anymore. :shock:

Thanks everyone for your comments. People did mistrest these vehicles over the years but there that good that they are still on the road. You guys are full of knowlege and thanks for all your support.
Technically we drive 910s
the 810 designation was not dropped because of loyalty and proven reliabilty.
The last 3 of the vin.
I am sure you fellows know that by now.

By the way I had my car up on the lift many times and it has been confused for a Mercedes Benz.Underneath.

I also drive around and get confused for BMW.Nice complement.

I hate when they say its a Toyota. I am very biased when Toyota name is mentioned. Overrated Japaneese cars.Nissan underrated Japaneese cars.
Datsun paved the way to all Japaneese cars in the US and the credit goes to the 240z.

Datsun also made the Japaneese.Look at thier racing winning record.Endurance rallys,Etc.

The Datsun by Nissan badge is in my garage.I replaced it for the 1981 Datsun 810 badge.Itmakes it look more distinctive.

You guys are good. My Max was a 11/81 production date.

From a rear 3/4 profile, the Subaru Loyale Wagon looks quite similar.

In the Sedans, the RWD Toyota Cressida of the same vintage has a similar long bonnet (it also has a straight Six) and I've sometimes done a dbl-take.

Wow, What a coincidence. My last three read 910.I thought that was because of the model. Maybee this one is destined for something big.

Did you read diesel beaters last year Motor Trend?

A few years ago I sold a diesel isuzu pup to a fellow from Belize. His bumper sticker read " You better Belize it!" No joke. This guy drove up to Seattle from Eugene OR (6-7hrs) to buy it, calling along the way "I have reached Portland! I have reached Tacoma! How much farther?"

From what he told me, I think that this is a fairly common practice with old/cheap diesels.

Yep.....those are what the dealer fitted to that car as well as the 280zx of the same vintage.

I once found driving lenses to fit to the bosch pilots and they became a bit more usefull.
