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.

Update?: No Progress =( And Spotted A 510

So, pretty much what the title says. I haven't been in the garage in about a month.  Life has a tendency to get in the way but it's cool.  I left off a few weeks ago trying to remove the dashboard.  Some of that plastic is really brittle.  I would be so mad at myself if I broke anything.  I removed the glove box and wanted to take it to the Datsun museum in Murrietta, CA (about an hour from where I live) and have is signed by Mr. K of Datsun Japan and some of the original Datsun dealers in the US.  Unfortunately that didn't happen because after doing research, I sadly learned that the museum closed about a year ago in early 2011.  I had family in town so we made the drive to Temecula and did a bit of wine tasting for my birthday.  Good times with people I love most - the fam.


Close to a year ago, I was at the mall and spotted this 510 in the parking lot.  I had to pull over and take some photos.  Upon a closer look, I saw that it still had the black vinyl top, reupholstered white suede interior, and it was a '3 on the tree' 3spd column shifter.  Had to take some pics.  So here are those pics I took.
