1973 Datsun 610 in the USA

I had a station wagon 610, slowest car I ever owned. The smog controlled 1800 engine had such low power, it’s not listed in the stats in the brochure. No claims of performance are made, except that it could get up to 25mpg. With the 70’s fuel crisis coinciding with the new emission controlled engines, a lot of Americans found small cars unacceptable for their poor performance.
