Hi All,

New member here (US East Coast). I have a 1971 Datsun 510 four door sedan that I'm hoping to get back on the road. It's had one owner (before me) and has been off the road and stored in a garage (partially disassembled) for at least a couple of decades. Pretty much complete and rust free, interior isn't too good but it's all there, rubber moldings around doors and glass are still pliable. Overall not bad. First order of business is to try to get the DMV to issue a title in my name. The old title and registration information fell out of the DMV database long ago. I have the original title and a bill of sale, but nothing is ever straightforward with the DMV.

Hello Patrick, and welcome to The Realm. Great time to post up as the East Coast 510 Meet is happening in May at Summit Point Raceway. Great opportunity to meet up with the East Coast contingent of 510 owners - a great group of resources.

That's almost a qualified barn find if it's been sitting that long.

It's good to see an olive coloured car. So many of these cars were sold in olive green, various shades of pumpkin orange, yellow and orange-brown, yet few examples are left in these colours today!

We will look forward to more photos and progress on your new project, welcome to the Realm.
