Really motivated to get this thing completely stripped and ready for media blasting.


PMK, how's the engine swap going?
Did you notice the outdated license plate on the white 510?

Re: Old school 510

I'm not discouraged by the small amout of rust I've encountered. I know the rocker panels just in front of the wheel wells will have to be replaced but the floorboards are still solid so that decision is solely dependent on how anal I get with this build. I've spent most of my working career as a sh...

Re: Old school 510

So I've realized a couple of things since i started this project. 1. it's a lot easier to sit on the couch and order stuff for the car online than it is to actually work on the car. but it's nowhere near as satisfying. 2.

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

Which I've babied since I bought it in '08 ( yeah I cried a bit) The upside? They stuck around until I came out and offered to pay fo...

The two red Daytona coupes were Superperformance replicas (obviously) but still very nice nonetheless!

Re: Datsun meet at the BRE headquarters

Re: Datsun meet at the BRE headquarters

this is the yellow 510 that was at SEMA, The V8 powered 510 had 240Z finned drum brakes in the rear, The Baja 510 has the competition seats that another user was looking for in a previous thread.
all in all, time well spent.
