After delighting back-road thrill-seekers and autocrossers alike, the Datsun Bluebird left the U.S. market, never to be seen again. Back in its home country, it matriculated into the all-wheel-drive rally fighter you see here, until bloat and anonymity set in, and its role in the marketplace was filled by a nameless front-drive appliance. Here at the peak of its career is the SSS-R variant, as legally protected as white-collar crime, thanks to the 25-year law. Find this 1988 Nissan Bluebird SSS-R in Las Vegas, NV for $8,500 via craigslist.
Right-hand drive complicates Starbucks orders, but more importantly, traffic stops. You're sure to get plenty in a car with a hood scoop and rally lights. A roll cage in a daily driver is a worrisome prospect, but this one doesn't look nearly intrusive enough to make an omelet out of your noggin. Your back seat passengers are similarly contained (or even restrained) by seat bolsters that nearly come up to your chest.
PhiLOL actually likes the tuna here, but abhors structural rust. Save the manuals.
