YAK Car Pic of the Day

'79 Datsun 510, Amherst, N.Y.

Now I know there have been millions of imported cars sold in the U.S. over the years, but for some reason you don’t see very many in a state of abandonment as you do the domestics. Nevertheless, here is a 1979 Datsun 510 station wagon; not the first generation 510, which is very popular with racers and customizers, but the second, more humdrum variety. I can only assume this was a trade-in, as it’s been sitting w-a-y-y back in the lot of an Amherst import dealer since (at least) last year. This is the kind of car salesmen hate to see pull in — these people obviously don’t buy very often, and can be a tough sell.
