Cjzeppy's return to 510s


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! If you remember me from four years ago I had been the owner of a somewhat famous east coast 72 510 2 door nicknamed "Little Miss Sunshine." I also had purchased a 69 521, but sadly both Datsuns are gone. Currently I own an all original 1975 280z that's been my pride and joy for almost a year. But ever since I sold my dime three years ago I've been longing for another. Well that ended today.....


Thanks to my devoted search on craigslist I picked up what I call a 510 collection. Two 2 door cars (one in almost running condition and the other a parts car) and a garage full of extra parts, panels, and stuff from 20 years of hoarding. Hopefully in the next few weeks I will sign the titles into my name, and transport the collection to my garage an hour away. My plan is to have the completed car running and driving for the summer while I build the parts car into something I've been dreaming for a long time. I will post pictures once I remember how I work the forums. Haha


Great to be back folks!

Finally had free time to upload some pictures to my photo bucket account. Couple weeks ago I picked up both cars and brought them home. Decided to keep the Orange car because it is the most complete, and will be the easiest to make drivable. I posted the primer car for sale and it sold last weekend. So I currently invested $1200 into the Orange car, but I have a couple more parts to sell and attempt to make back 100% my money on this project before I turn a single bolt. In the next few weeks when I have more time I will begin evaluating the dime to see what needs replaced and what can be repaired to get the car to pass state inspection. But for now here are some pictures of the car and bringing them home.
