Suffering buyer’s remorse, as always

So I bought a ’94 Nissan Bluebird. It’s a larger car (think Honda Accord) than I was orginally looking for, but the kms are low and it drives well. NZ doesn’t really have the equivalent of publicly available so it was difficult to know what a good price for anything was. I probably didn’t get a good price, but if the car turns out to be as reliable as the web reports say, I’ll be satisfied.

I’ve never seen a Bluebird (stupid name, BTW) in the US, though it was mentioned on Wikipedia that the Nissan Stanza and Altima were North American versions. The name itself has been around since 1957 under the Datsun brand, and one incarnation was actually the Datsun 510, which so happened to be the first car I drove! I don’t have a current photo of the Bluebird, but this stock image of a ’91 is pretty close.
