But the new Maxima, due out later this year as a 2016 model, may just change that thinking as it looks to be sharing some of its...

You still see the occasional 1981-84 "810 Maxima" on the street these days, sporting the confusing "Datsun by Nissan" badging of the era, but I'm talking about the 1977-80 810s here.

Sure, a very nice '78 810 wagon took Hooniverse Wagon Wednesday honors last year, but this car may well be one of the only 810 survivors left in the country. Anyway, wagons like this have managed to achieve a...
