Robbie Duarte had a blue bog block powered 510 in the '80s that ran 8 second quarter mile. The nose was stretched and he had a couple different motors he ran. The 468 had mechanical fuel injection sticking out of the hood.

It made the magazines, and you can buy a copy:

I just searched his name and variations on drag racing, Datsun. etc. There was also an obituary for a Robert Duarte, but I couldn't be sure it's the same person. If so, it might be interesting to reach out to his kin to see if they had any images that could be added to the web's Datsun digital history.


I must have had something boring that I should have been doing...
