Re: Wts 72 datsun 510 mostly stock..

thanx guys, of course the pics show all the best possible angles, and the car definitely has its share of cosmetic and other problems, but I'm very happy to have a running, straight rust free 4 door with an interior/exterior i can live with to drive to work every day.
