    Yeah, she's not very friendly. Probably just an old car to her. I've waved before with no response back, and tagged her on here before.

    Maybe they were just Datsun fans. http://www.confluence-denver.com/galleries/Development_News/tivolibrewery_580.jpg

    Check this out. At first I thought the old brewery was run by Datsun fans, but I bet the dealer was right next door. I think this is from 1969. Can anyone confirm the location of the Datsun dealer in Denver in 1969? http://www.westword.com/restaurants/a-new-brewery-will-pour-denvers-tivoli-beer-for-the-first-time-since-1969-5762528 Here's the original article I read. Cool story. http://www.westword.com/restaurants/fifty-years-after-it-was-destroyed-in-a-flood-denvers-tivoli-brewery-will-rise-again-6670474

    Carter's 521

    I'm the previous owner before laotsu. Glad you are taking care of "Blue." She had a LZ22 when I bought her sometime in 2004-2006 and an S-10 stock seat. I personally found an original 521 seat, cleaned it and painted with Rust Doctor, then painted it, and recovered and new foam with a custom seat cover (about $200). She was good to me, but I had to upgrade. I like what you've done so far. I had plans, just not time. Those fenders are from a 72 that my friend painted for me because the original were not great around the headlights. I may have some parts from the 72 if you need anything. Let me know if you have any questions, I know most of the history of Blue. That L16 engine and tranny came from the 72 also. Had a 240Z wooden shift knob. The original transmission was noisy in 4th but still worked. I still have the LZ22 that was in it when I bought it. Sold her for way less than I thought she was worth, but wanted to see her go to the right home and I think she found it. Want to sell that old license plate frame? Cheers!

    So he finally got it, eh? He wanted to buy it from me before I sold it to you. I hope he takes care of it.

    Yep. Now I remember seeing it years ago, downtown. I used to have a 71 the same color. Need any parts? I think I remember reading when you got the shell. Nice. Want to sell those Titan rims?

    I just saw this light blue 521 with a dark blue stripe down the side, lowered with rims and a large campover camper shell at the South Petaluma 101 onramp. I didn't have time to get a pic. Would love to know more about it.

    All those things can be replaced, changed though.

    Seen this one before. This time in Petaluma, California. Nice knobby. 68? Didn't check the wiper directions, but the fenders were early.

    Wrecking Yard Report

    Damn shame. I swear it was on Craigslist for years for $2500 in Sonoma, CA with a bad carb. Maybe it had DMV back fees. If the taillights are original it's an 85 or early 86. Parts alone would have been with the $2500 fee. Nice bumper and chromed lower valance. I should have snagged it when it was for sale.

    Stolen Datsun 510

    Congrats. Now make sure you put some decent theft protection in that thing so it doesn't happen again, and keep it in sight. In my opinion that little wimpy lock won't keep someone from breaking the fuel door open.
