Umm, not sure that’s actually cool.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Well, "not really a what I did" but more of a "what I received" - just as exciting in some ways :D Opened and a quick inspection for damage (none) and the quality seems excellent. Really pleased with Futofab. I went with the JDM/AUS front marker light holes. I've got the roundies...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Looking forward to visiting Specialty Engineering when I can more easily get over to the mainland. I've got a binder full of receipts from them, so they know the car well. Would love to see your car when that happens. I'm in the planning process with my car and won't likely take it off the road unti...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Makes sense... I've heard from many others that in the case of a total loss, it can be painful to get ICBC to acknowledge the value of many collector cars. I suspect 510s would be on that list given their inexpensive lineage, although certainly lots of evidence that replacing a mechanically and phys...

Re: Inner front door handles

Nice - he is waiting for more stock which he expects this week and I'm getting some shipped to me. He will give me a final quote in the next day or two. If anyone wants a set, let me know. Shipping to me is the same for up to four sets so happy to work something out to ship a pair to someone else in...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Yesterday was the last "winter" fire up before insurance in late April! Hi Keith, Is there a reason you don't go for ICBCs modified collector plates? I did that for my car and no complaints - annual insurance for about the same cost as insuring under normal insurance for 3 months. I think...

Re: Weber carbs

I'm not in the market, but that seems to be a good price... maybe try the 510 parts group on facebook?

Re: New Member

I was thinking it could be the Victoria Nissan 510, but wasn't aware that they no longer had it. Would love to know the story about how it got from them to your ownership. Sounds like you are planning on picking away at keeping it bone stock - good plan for this one I think. I can't imagine how much...

Re: BaT sells another Datsun 510 - $46k US

I missed that one... does not look that great in the listing in my opinion. The reserve was off at $31k but there were a couple of eager bidders and a peanut gallery of commenters egging them on. A couple of committed bidders is usually what drives prices over market in these live auctions.

Re: BaT sells another Datsun 510 - $46k US

On the other hand... they had a week to ask questions and sellers on BaT who don't answer questions generally get roasted. Maybe they swooped in last minute but I'm pretty sure the guy who bought it was asking questions well in advance. He didn't like the flares or the trunk spoiler - which is going...
