I just picked up a 1981 210 today. I only bought it because it had a really good muffler and bought it for less then what a good ebay muffler would have run me. Well....I started poking around when I got it home and found out its really in good mechanical condition. I pulled the fuel tank off and cleaned it, made a new fuel line, new plug, filed the points, swapped a carb I new was ready to go, and then preceded to drive her around. So are these 210s good little workers? Are the trannys pretty tough in them?
