"The 1978 B-210 (American model) with 5-speed transmission was rated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency at 50 mpg-US (4.7 L/100 km; 60 mpg-imp) highway fuel economy." Very interesting.

I agree with the raked stance idea, then building a nose cone, then a lot of experimentation on a belly pan. Looks like it'd be a good project.

This car started out as a B210:

I believe it was chosen for the shape of the rear hatch.

Sadly, Autrader Classic does not show a single B-210 for sale in the United States.
