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.

Bob Bondurant Driving Video 1978

I was browsing youtube and saw this video made in 1978.  The video was uploaded by youtube user "BondurantSchool".
"Film made in 1978 by the Bandag Tire Company for The Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. The School was using Datsun 240Zs, 260Zs, 280Zs and 810s at the time and was located at Sears Point International Raceway, today know as Infineon. In this film Bob Bondurant personally instructs three students in the Grand Prix Road Racing class. They will learn heel-toe down-shifting, trail braking, corner entry and smoother car control."

Dubbed "The Fastest 60 Acres In America" the school, now located in Phoenix, Arizona, offers a wide array of driving and racing techniques for cars and kart with a long standing history in the automotive industry.
