'69 rear marker light

Been a while since I've been on here as I sold my dime about a year ago. I was cleaning out my garage and found an extra rear side marker and the black paint on the back of it means its from my first 510 I bought in 1989. I've been dragging it around for 20+ years since that car was totaled. Anyway,...

Re: WTS: 1969 Datsun 510 VG30-powered. $13,500

The AMG cooling fins are welded to a boxed in section which in turn is welded to a stock cover. Probably not the most effecient way of cooling but it looks kinda cool. And ANY additional volume in a R160 will help.

WTS: 1969 Datsun 510 VG30-powered. SOLD!

edit: It seemed unlikely that a high-dollar dime would sell in these economic conditions but it sold quickly and at nearly within 10% of asking price. It went to a fellow adult enthusiast who, i am confident, will take very good care of it. Year :1969 Make and Model : 510- 2dr Exterior Color : Vanil...

Re: Thinking of selling the dime and moving on.

It is a tough decision. The point of this post is to try to find that gut feeling that I am subconciously either trying to squelch or allow to surface. How bad will I miss it. Right now I am really enjoying my E30 BMW as a daily driver. It has a sunroof, power windows, a proper stereo, leather seats...

Thinking of selling the dime and moving on.

Reasons to sell: Its hard for me to justify keeping a car that gets driven so little. I've had 2 kids since I bought it. My wife refuses to set foot in it. I'm gone 50hrs a week at work so my spare time is devoted to them. I could pay off some bills that are nagging us. I feel selfish have so much m...

Re: XXR wheel brand experiences

I just put a set of silver 521's on my e30 and they fit well, balanced out perfectly and as you kids today say, are hella flush. If I had any questions as to quality, it would be about the longevity of the finish. The paint chipped when popping the center caps but thats all and I've had them all of ...

Re: Can anyone check out a bike in Whistler?

True but 'usually' you can tell from the pictures if the bike has been abused or not. Its not looking good, though. No one on here is close by and I'm relucatant to buy a bike that hasn't been checked out by a 3rd party. Honestly the trails I rode in Whistler had fewer loose rocks than the local res...

Can anyone check out a bike in Whistler?

I mainly want a 3rd party to make sure it hasn't been abused, and that nothing is bent/broken.
DH bikes by design get the crap beat of them.

Re: My friends up north. Anyone willing to inspect/ship a DH

Kieth, what those pictures don't show was the pucker factor- esp when riding over the creek. That trip help my riding progression 10fold! When riding alone in Idaho at a park this summer I hit a 24' road gap. Shorted it a bit, but I still hit it. It was loooonng but only 4' of vertical. Anyway... I ...
