About Me

My Datsun 510 is a work in progress. I was into Datsun's the day after I was born and this was the car literally rode in. So my interest in cars recently came about when I saw our family's old 510 rusting in a field for the past 25 years, until 2009 when I decided to take it on as my restoration project. Thought I'd start this blog about just different stuff that interests me (not just cars but hobbies too). This car is not for sale nor will it ever be for sale. *If your car is featured here against your wishes or you see incorrect information, please contact me at classicdatsuns@gmail.com , and I will make any necessary changes. Have fun viewing. I am not affiliated with any sponsors, company, or body shop. I'm just a dude that likes Datsuns.

JCCS 2010 Part 3

510 / Bluebird craziness!!  These are all pics of 510's at the show.  I was particularly interested in the 4 door 510's and started taking pics of tires specs for the 4 door 510's.  It's not clear though if these guys are using spacers or not or if they have stretched tires but hope you have fun looking at my pics.

That engine above is a FJ20 motor from a DR30 Skyline.  This car is a JCCS winner!  The owner came down from Washington state, Seattle area and took the show.  These pictures don't do any justice to the hard work done on the car.  It was immaculate!
Here's a link to an article about the car in motormavens:
I must have waited about 30 min just admiring everything about the car, hoping the owner would pop out of somewhere but never got a chance.  I love this car and this is exactly the color I'm going for or pretty close to it (don't think I'll be able to obtain rare Sakura rims though). =D 

Sitting next to the "Sakura 510" was this beautifully restored green (below) 1600cc L16 motor - 510.  From the pics the color looks almost the same but the shade made the green darker and the light made this look like it was neon green color. 

It was good meeting this fellow ratsun.net member at the show.  Very approachable and easy to talk to.  Lot's of Datsun knowledge and humor =P

 A cancerous rusty 510 wagon.  This is about the rustiest car I saw at the show and for some reason the car was beckoning me for a pic.
