New member with a 72

Postby Redrumls » 05 Oct 2016 17:05

I'm a new member from Cali. with a 72 goon with a ka24de & 5 speed swap that I have to finish off. I'm new to 510's but not to datsuns, had a 66 Datsun roadster. As soon as I figure out how to post pics from my iPhone I'll get some posted up.
Thanks, Greg

Thanks.. I'm stoked about this goon! roadster was fun but the long roof is just plain dope! Can't wait to roll this around the mountains around where I live, close to Yosemite national park.

Hello Greg, and welcome to The Realm. If you could put your location in your profile, that'll help us know where you are once you move beyond this thread.

KA's a great engine for the 510. Open up the exhaust a little bit (factory was corked) and it'll rip to redline.

Hey nice find! I am liking the 68 Camaro in the back ground. I just finished one 2 summers ago to fund my Datsun purchase.

Lol, I was doing the opposite to fund my nova & chevelle projects. Had a 66 roadster I just sold, made some cash & got this 510. Was supposed to buy some more parts for my Chevy 2. I have the Datsun bug! The camaro has an ls2 which I'm taking out to put some ls3 heads & stuff it into my Chevy 2 fuel injected. 68 camaro is getting a stock 5.3 now, for my son that's 13 & he doesn't need all that power.
I'm going to start building classic Japanese sport compacts along side of my domestic muscle. ;)

I have an rx3 goon now to match my 510 goon. I parked them side by side, rx3 seems a hair shorter but a hair wider.

Agreed.

My buddy had an RX4 wagon around the same time I had an RX4 sedan - in my youth. When he got rid of his wagon, I kept the "Rotary Wagon" emblem off it. I still have that to this day.

Cool pair of cars for sure.

Thanks, i almost sold the rx3 goon after I bought it. There's no rotary shops where I live( Central cal) & was getting a little discouraged. Started talking to ppl in LA where they have a huge rotary scene, gave me new life... plus it's so unique & rare, I'm probably the only one around the area where I live with a wagon like that.
