Well, like any good rally car - she's now broke in! :D

No major damage I hope - the wheels I can see look realativly ok in realation to each other.

I'm looking forward to the updates - I can't get enough sounds of good L motors in the woods.

Sorry to burst your bubbles guys, but it has a KA24E now...

Here's the latest video. NSFW language. In my defense, I did just roll it over...

Well, we can add the Peking to Paris rally to the 510's accolades.

There's also a 240Z in the shots as well - looks like both completed the event.

Here's a short video.

This first set of four snagged from the defunct DQ site. Photos supplied by Mike Friedman.

"This was taken at the "Press On Regardless" rally in November, 1981. The driver was Mike Friedman (me), and the navigator Marc Goldfarb. The car was originally prepared for racing by the Z-Center in Clifton, NJ. I converted it for rallying with the addition of taller springs, KYB rally shocks, and a skid plate. The engine used a race cam and a Weber 45 DCOE carb with higher compression pistons. The car was hard to start, then hard to stop!!Unfortunately, this car no longer exists. When last seen it was more rust than metal..."

A few more period Safari pics.
1970 champs. Note lack of front flares. Did they add the flared fenders during the event? :

Did you know Eric Jones out of Columbus OH? Don't know if you & I have talked before! Eric was one of my best customers, buying British parts from me for his shop Riverside Motors. I would help him at the British car show swap meets whenever & wherever I could, became good friends. I sold him a clean 2dr around 1995, cuz he wanted to build another rally car. He DID just barely finish the yellow 4dr before he passed away.......don't know where that one is at this point. I had already been down to his place five times (from Kalamazoo) before he passed, to clear out all of his 510 parts + two cars (one being the 2dr I sold him a few years before that he never got to). He didn't want his wife Susan to have to deal with any of it. His original car got balled up after he sold it to Terry Palmer & partner, it was being filled up with scrap metal my first visit down there for the parts, but I was so overwhelmed by the piles of parts, that I didn't think to take the shell.........it really was in horrible condition anyway! I sold off most of the Nissan Comp parts, and sent around $6000 to the Ohio State University's Cancer Center as a donation under his name. I still have his BRE style racing seat, a Jimco rear diff cover with all of the fins ground off the bottom from excessive use & one original Panasport wheel that he tried to weld up & repair! Sure miss that guy......RIP Eric!
