Stay on the Bus

Datsun, the Japanese motorcar extinct for more than a quarter century, returns from the junkyard to drive again in 2014. More remarkable than the forgotten automobiles reincarnation is its price: $3,000-$5,000. This is less than Nissan charged for a new Datsun upon the brands early-80s phase out.

Drivers will be traveling back to the future — just not in the United States. Nissan will market the dirt-cheap Datsun in Indonesia, Russia, and India. Its a car aimed at emerging markets.

Why can’t we have a $3,000 car, too?

Because Americans like their poor people where they belong: on the bus.
