Hello! Hi! from Sacramento

Postby clunkthe510 » 04 Apr 2017 16:12

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to quickly introduce myself and Clunk. I received clunk after the passing of a good friend, he was a good guy with a love for Startrek, his dog Mabel, and Clunk (a 1971 510 4-door). As for myself, I work and have with aspirations of being a PA and enjoy tinkering on some of my other projects.

Look forward to the exchange of knowledge and maybe meeting a few good people along the way if anyone resides close to the Sacramento area.

Best

Hello and welcome to The Realm. Still a lot of 510/Datsun guys in Sac and the greater Sac area. Looks like your project has some stories to tell. Good to see another car being loved.

It definitely does. The PO had an interesting past that resulted in him loosing his right arm many years ago, but despite this he would on occasion make a store run resulting in battle scars from a pole/pillar run-in. He replaced the head (not sure with what), carbs, and did some suspension work.

I drove it home a few weeks before he passed and I am not sure what my long term plans are with it, but I've been going through the interior and fixing things here and there. I'll be on the look out for anyone close and use that as an excuse to get it back on the road. I'll post more pics of the interior and such.
