Maybe so, but were those "concourse ready" 510s? :lol:

This was a print article in MT Classic, but here's the digital version:

I am the current owner that car. I have to say it is one of the most fun cars I have ever driven thanks to the Bode family who built it. Hopefully I can bring it back to its glory days of magazine articles. It still looks pretty close to that minus the graphics.

Found a few things. May be the last (unpublished) copy of FTA and a few Grassroots mags. I still have to look through them to see way I kept them. But they were in the FTA box. So I'm sure they have something about 510s in them. I'll see if I can some of them scanned this week.

Open up my The LA Times today, and I see what I never thought I'd see, a Datsun 510 (wagon, no less) on the cover of Business:

Not a magazine, but seemed the most appropriate place to put it. Completed an order from RockAuto (for a Toyota Tacoma, even) and got this on the confirmation screen:
