From scanner traffic it sounds as though police are conducting a grid search of the city, looking for this car.

OMG! That was the car I took my driver's exam in years and years and years ago. I can't imagine there are too many of those still running today. Should be pretty conspicuous if it's parked out on the street.

KMill, I'm with you, there can' t be that many of these still moving under their own power. I assume they're checking the DOT's files? I saw one yesterday, parked at a business on S. Findlay somewhere between Marginal way and 6th.

Maybe it wasn't gangbangers….would any self respecting gang banger drive this?

Look for anarchists or fascists.

Just FYI, it wasn't my Datsun B210. Mine is bright yellow (the suspect car is blue), an older version, and doesn't run right now. :)
