1970 Datsun 510 I'm just a Old School Trans-Am Wantabe! I have owned this car since 1974. Datsun L-20B (2 liter, 4 cylinder) bored .040" over with flat top 280Z pistons, 10.5:1 compression ratio. 44mm Mukuni side draft carbs, Racer Brown Slalom cam, 280Z intake and exhaust valves. Datsun competition Header exiting thru a custom built 2.5" exhaust system. Accusump, 280ZX 5 speed, 4.38 LSD, Datsun competition springs and shocks, 280ZX front brakes and struts. 15x8, 0 offset, XXR 002 wheels. 205/50-15" Falken ZE-912 tires. Box fenders, Louvered hood, 16 gallon fuel cell, Autopower Roll bar…….I could go on and on. I have put around 30,000 miles since the car was completely restored in 1983. I love taking it to car shows and sitting back and listening to people’s comments. It’s rare to see another 510 in the Ohio rustbelt!

Nice car and nice to see the long-term ownership, too. That's commitment.

Love the Moon eyes. Box flares make everything cooler.
