Datsunville saving Dimes


Recommended Posts

Here was a very nice example of a Datsun 510 2 door, that just ended badly.

 

We are working to bring it back

If you retained the original engine compartment "ID tag" then I would keep the color denoted on the factory tag.  It may not be gorgeous, or originally yellow, but in the long run it will be at least near authentic.  Nissan is not making 510s any more and the Jay Leno effect is setting in.

Who runs border town? Evidently James.

And suddenly his love of midget tranny porn makes so much more sense.

Sorry, it was nearly 30 years ago, and I only saw it once.

Good Lord, I dread the day that Jay Leno's scouts find my RL411 !  It will dry up all future sources of spare parts. And I have been successful in finding original or substitute parts for 50 years as original as can be possible after a 51 years old model.    See you all at the new location for the 2018 JCCS !  BTW, I am also bringing my "new" car, the 1997 Infiniti J30T.  Nissan used to be a hit by putting  a Fair Lady Sports Car engine in to a 4 door sedan.  I'm bringing 2 of the best efforts !
