Aha! That car has been to several of our club meetings. I knew it was for sale, but didnt know it had sold! Check out "Sacramento Datsun Owners" on facebook, weve been around for nearly 15 years, hold monthly meetings, fun-runs etc.

When I bought this ^^^^ in '84 I was driving this '72 4door- L20B, Mulholland springs, Turn 6 sway bars, Enkei wheels.  Pic circa early 1984:

A couple months after I got the red '72 2 door, I had swapped all the good stuff from the yellow car to the red car and sold the yellow car as a stocker.  Installed a dogleg 5-speed with the L20b and now I had a pretty nice original paint 510!

This car has worn a several different set of wheels over the 3 1/2 decades I've owned her. I traded the 13x6 gold Enkeis for 13x7 Panasports (always regretted that trade as the Enkeis were far nicer, but I really wanted wider wheels for a/x). A/X at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium, circa 1988, running 185/60 Yokohama A008RS. Still have these wheels with hubcaps.

American Racing re-issued 500 sets of 13x7 Libres in the mid-80s, so I picked up a set. This was at a California Capri Club event at Sears Point in the early '90s and heavily attended by UFO Norcal. CCC shortly thereafter evolved into NASA. Regrettably I sold these wheels on. I think tires were 185/60 Yoko A008 RSII

Here we have 13x6.5 Hayashi Racing Street II's at Shasta, around 1996. I had painted the grille flat black which I thought was cool at the time. Still have these wheels with hubcaps.Tires were probably 205/60 Toyo RA1s.

For a while in the mid '90s I had two sets of these 13x6 Performance Industries Superlites- one set for A/X and one set for track days. I still have one set, seen in most of the previously posted pics.  Here's a pic from an Alfa Club Time Trial entering turn 1 at Willow Springs, mid-90s. The track had been freshly repaved and was quite the dreamy experience to drive on. Tires are 205/60 Toyo RA1s:

Here we are with 14x5.5 Libre clones, circa late '90s at Shasta. I was running 195/55-14 Dunlop SP8000s for street tires. I found these wheels in the JY and they were pretty grungy so I acid etched them with mag wheel cleaner and they turned out bitchen.

Then I came across a set of genuine American Racing 14x5.5 Libres in good shape. I had them powder coated silver.  Tires are 195/55-14 Dunlops. Still have these, running them on Zeke.

Been running 15x7 Watanabe RS8s with 205/50-15 Falken tires since swapping in the SR20DE in 2002.
