My dad almost bought one of these when I was little. In the end, he went with something else because our local Datsun dealer wouldn't budge on price.

Several years down the road, one of my uncles bought one. His was a 2+2 with an automatic, but 11-year-old me still thought Uncle Jim's car was pretty neat. And that was actually one of a few sports cars Jim owned. My mom has a picture of him somewhere standing in front of his TR-3, and I also got to ride in a first-gen RX-7 he owned. Many, many years down the line, I got to return the favor by taking him out for a spin in my Miata. At the time he said he was thinking of buying one.
