 I came across this forum today while searching for something and I saw this 510 section. I had to register to PM the guy so since I'm here I'd like to share my recently aquired 510. It's alot cleaner inside now than when the pics were taken. All the lighting and wiring issues have been resolved so now it just needs some TLC Big smile

 The following is a copy and paste from the original thread on another forum.
 Well after 4 years with the GS300 I grew bored of it and decided that I wanted something fun to drive for a daily again. So I promptly listed it around on a few forums and started looking for something. I wasn’t sure what I wanted at that point and was initially looking for a swapped SC300 or a well taken care of and modified 240. I later came across a thread somewhere with some bad ass OG Japanese rides and I then got hooked in the idea of owning one. At one point had a trade worked out for a 72’ Celica coupe in Kentucky but with bad timing and bad weather it didn’t end up working out before the guy had a cash offer for it. After a bit more looking around I happened upon this 1971 4dr from Cali that, in looks, reminded me of the Datsun my parents had when I was growing up. So I contacted the owner and worked out a good deal, put a deposit down on it and had it on the way here a couple weeks later. It finally showed up mid last week and man… this thing smaller than I remember! Being 6’2” 230 it’s a bitch to get in and out of but once you get seated there is plenty of room and it’s actually comfy.

 Driving it is a blast and the handling it has is way better than I had expected. It’s also alot faster than I thought it was going to be and once the VVL (VVL = Nissans version of Hondas VTEC) kicks in the thing just screams. The tune it has is on it is on rich side but it runs great, I haven’t had a chance to find a place to weight it yet but the guy said it was right around 2000lbs. With some cams, lightweight flywheel and a good tune this thing will be a beast.
 Body and panel wise it is very solid, some surface rust here and there but nothing bad. The interior is pretty much stripped aside from the carpet and door panels so driving in the rain is going to be LOUD!
