Hi Guys!

Postby mex510 » 05 Dec 2017 16:58

Hi guys, my name is Eduardo. I am a mechanical engineer, and have always loved cars. I own a 64 falcon, a 72 datsun 510 4 dr and my daily is a 500 abarth. I got my 510 about 3 years ago. I took it all apart to check for rust, fortunately found out was pretty clean, only had to fix a couple spots on the floor at the drivers and passengers side. I painted it red and re did all the front suspension with aftermarket (mainly futofab), installed coilovers with camberplates, completed the ka24e swap (came with the car but had a few issues). Interior wise was pretty good, only changed the gauges, including a gps speedometer, and a vintage radio. Just a couple weeks back the crazy idea came to mind of turboing the ka24. Haven't got to it yet but started looking at different parts and options in order to do it.

Thanks for the introduction guys, I will try to post a couple pics of my rides tomorrow when theres better day light.

Thanks again!

Thanks a lot Rob! I really appreciate it, as you probably know they are always a work in progress, it seems like you never finish and always want to keep changing stuff. But I guess thats what keeps it interesting lol

I love the "dead" pedal for the passenger in the Falcon.! Having taken some people for a rompin' ride in my car, we forget what it is like for a passenger trying to both hang on and plant ones feet on the firewall.

Thanks Ron! I really appreciate it, I do not use it too much as it is pretty uncivilized lol and has sentimental value as it was my dads. I am located in Mexico city, but actually drove the falcon a few years ago with my dad all the way up to el paso, tx.

Thanks bertvorgon! For sure, when people get on that falcon as a passenger they need all the help to grab onto something lol it pulls and corners really well.
