Re: Datsun's on the World Rally Stage

Hi Guys: TrackSide Photo is a wealth of information. In addition to the 510's - the Datsun Pickup's did pretty well at the Baja, especially after 1972 when the course became more suited to true off-road vehicles. Kohs / Knepp won their class in this 620 Pick-up in 1973. You may recall that Mr. Kohs ...

Re: TrackSide Photo

If Its OK - I'll put in a Plug for my friends at TrackSide Photo - they have been covering the Baja since 1970 and have an extensive archive of photographs - that they have been getting on-line. You can order copies from them at very reasonable prices. They dug out a lot of photo's of the BRE Baja Z...

Re: Datsun's on the World Rally Stage

Hi Byron510: The photo's were shot at the BRE Shop in 1968 - They were Publicity/PR Photo's taken by the Datsun Competition Department. Just part of my research related to BRE's efforts at the Baja. I started searching for information related to that subject after reading "the Stainless Steel Carrot...

Re: Datsun's on the World Rally Stage

Much Earlier: BRE became a Nissan Factory Competition Team in 1968. That was the first year BRE ran a Datsun 510 in the Baja 1000 {then called the Mexican 1000}. From 1967 and until 1973 the Baja 500 and 1000 were ran mostly on a course somewhat like the current WRC Mexico Rally. Dirt roads through ...

..... the 3 main Alfa drivers Kwech, Everest and the Greek (Theokropoulos?) blocked, knocked cars out for each other, and and kept to agreed teamlike order until all other competitors were back in the pack... thats how it works- even in nascar(though not so obviously). Just an interesting side note...

BMW had no real financial backing in the trans am series. Datsun 510's have outrun or outlasted pretty much every brand on the planet that was around back in the day 'tis sour grapes! Hi Merlin: I believe that the people racing the BMW's really didn't need any money directly from the factory. Back ...

RE: need some advice/opinions

Get it looking super first -then build an engine later. Nothing motivates a guy to continue ownership and improvement like having a car they think is good looking, and which they are proud to be seen in. On the other hand, a ragged out beater looking the worse for wear gets no respect, bad all round...

Did you buy your 510 from Peter, or was your car at his house for some reason? Yes - I'd say you are one of the lucky one's... Carl B. Carl, Yes. The Orange 510 in the above picture was purchased from Peter Brock. It was his personal DD 510. Are the same Carl B. in Florida that is into Z cars? Davi...
