1972 Datsun 510 (VQ35 Powered)

Recommended Posts

Regretfully selling my VQ35 powered 510.

EEEEK!!! My baby got a booboo.

Sad to see. I assume the back end decided to kick out on you when you gave her some gas. It will be a lot of good stuff to swap over to a clean chassis, or repair the quarter if the car is still straight.
