NorCalDime Posted June 25, 2009 Report Share Posted June 25, 2009 So i have had my car now for a while... Never started a build thread and i kinda regret it. So much stuff has be done to it that i dont even know were to start. I was in the market for a 510, wanted one real bad. They have been an object of my wanting since i was about 16. I had been searching craigslist for a while to find one but nothing was too promising. Then i found the car. It had been one of the 5 or 6 cars i had sent e-mails out about and had gotten a response. So after talking to the owner for a long time about everything that was done and the condition i decided i wanted it. I picked up my car In South San Fran on july 26th 2008. I wanted the car from when i first saw it, but i had to convince my wife to let me get it. Im glad she did. So she followed me home and we made the trek back to Sacramento. Up to this point i had never been in a 510, never closely looked at one, never know a person with one. I just knew that i had the car i wanted. I figured i would learn as i went, and i have! The car had some good things going for it. Had some HID's in the Hella lenses, were blinding though It had 280z front struts with GC coils, Tokico blues in rear. Front and rear swaybars, Maxima rear discs Interior is 93 acura legend, Subaru outback center console Subaru diff LSD w/ 4.11 gears. The motor was Strong but had a few tuning issues L20b block from a 77 datsun pickup. Datsun 210 Head. Intake ports were ported. bigger valves and heavy duty springs were added. head was shaved to boost up compression. custom cam was grinded. Nissan comp Long-tube headers dual mikunis 44 s With individual Throttle Intake tunnels. 280z 5 speed starter came of a 280 z gear reduction I loved the way the motor sounded. It was a screamer when it was running right. The dash lights didnt work and neither did the heater blower so one of the first things i did was pull the dash apart and fix it I installed some blue led's in the gauge cluster as well. The car was fairly solid, minus the flinstones hole in the driver floorboard. So i had to take care of that. Unfortunatly i cant find the pic i took after it was patched lol. Some random photos Then i went out and tryed to take some nice pics of my new baby Quote Link to comment
