As the story usually goes, long time lurker. Finally joined! Recently purchased a 1973 2 door, automatic(for now). Hoping to take advantage of the knowledge and parts to be had from the realm.

Welcome to the site!

As we are keeping a list of the NEWEST 510's, and true 73's are quite rare...what is your serial number and we will add it to the list.

Hey Balatch... It's Chris here. Glad you finally grabbed something. Which car did you buy? I still have some parts if you need anything and I am pretty close still ( Barrie ).
Let's see some pics of the car.
Cheers

Hey Balatch, nice to see another Ontario 510 owner. Where are you located?

There's 3-4 of us in the Ottawa area.

Thanks Bertvorgon! My vin is PL510431466. Are they actually rare? I thought I've seen a fair amount advertised as 1973's. Perhaps I'm wrong.

Chris, long time man. You know I always kicked myself for selling that sedan to you haha. But the timing wasn't good for me. You may have seen it, I purchased a clean California car out of Montreal. A lot more money than the last 510. But the markets changed lots in the past 6 years. Inbox me your number sometime please. You have a Datsun again?

Hey Dadzsun, actually I'm West of you in Kaladar. Would love to meet fellow 510 owners.

I'm bad at the internet. Will try to post pics later.

No matter, you still have a late production car, which jives with another member who is 100 car away from yours. Yes, COOL!

My list is now updated with your production date.

Hey Dadzsun, actually I'm West of you in Kaladar....


Damn right the market has changed (East coast at least) - so glad I got mine about 6.5 years ago. My car was recently re-appraised at over 3x the value I purchased it for. Granted much of that difference was due to the money I put into the car, but it's still nice to see car-related investments not going down the drain.

I know of your area when taking Hwy 7. Beautiful... Must be some amazing roads out there - might be better if Ottawa owners come to you for a cruise!

Awesome, where can I find this list?

That's definitely a good feeling. It's nice when the hobby doesn't have to be throwing your money away. Which is part of the reason newer vehicles don't do a lot for me.

I was speaking to a fellow who has a couple RX3's outside Ottawa and he mentioned a friend with a KA24 510...?

The roads are pretty good for sure. I would definitely entertain having some visitors haha. Look forward to meeting localish 510 guys.
