owned buy the guy dad for years the cars sat in a garage since 91. Original owner had been amasing parts to restore it with his son. Unfortunatly the father moved away and the son didnt knownhow to fix it. When the wife wanted a new car one had to.. so the 510 was put on the chopping block. Basicaly when it was posted i was bombarded with facebook messages from friends... ironicaly that day susan and i had just had a discussion... well more of an intervention about my need to buy cars.. 4 hours later i had another one with the agreement my l400, m3, and Titan would be sold. The car cane with a boat load of parts, side deaft carbs and few engines and what was supposed to by a dog leg 5 speed (its not.. ) the 2 L20B in it spun 180 then jammed up... i assume valve to piston contact. So i yanked it and dumped the other 2.0 in with fingure crossed it works. The carb was a big ball of varnish so it had to be cleaned ad rebiult. I got susan to do a lot of the wrenchjng.. just to see how she liked it. If you look at the photos i think this wagons got a new owner. The fuel i drianed from the tank was about the consistancy of pea soup and jet black. A 4l of hydrocloric acid in the tank took care of the 1 inch thick layer of grime.... it also found all the rust holes in the tank. So for now it runs out of a jerry can. Its no "barn find" but its a good starting point and great car for susan to learn mechanical work on and fix up for herself.
