Before there was the Nissan Sentra, which is still being produced, there was the 1982 Datsun Sentra, the first-year replacement for the Datsun 210. This was during the time that Nissan was phasing out the Datsun name and replacing it with Nissan. For a while, to get the buying public used to the Nissan name, they were badged “Datsun by Nissan.”
In Japan, the car we know as Sentra is called Sunny, a name which goes back to 1966. This blue Sentra was seen recently in a driveway on Buffalo’s East Side.
