    Anyone have a Hot Rod Mag with a Datsun B210 cover car?

    I'm just trying to find more info on this. I've stumbled upon a stripped B210 shell with flares molded onto it that the owner insists was a Hot Rod magazine cover car. He doesn't know when, doesn't have the cover, and it wasn't his at the time, he just insists he knows it was and used to have the magazine.

    I'm just wondering. No pics yet, I'll try to get some.

    I find that slightly hard to believe... :?

    Even when Hot Rod had a 510 project car it never once graced the cover.

    I know Hot Rod did have a 240z on their cover. It was the Super Shops giveaway car. It had a B&M supercharged small block in it with alot of custom bodywork and interior. I've got copies of the entire build series but, alas..no scanner.

    Hot Rod featured quite a few imported cars back in the mid-70s, and I think that's where I scanned this pic from...



    I have the full article out in the shed, I'll try and remember to bring it in. Looks good, whether it made the cover or not!

    Those flares look about right...



    Yeah, let me know if you can find it. :mrgreen: :tu: It's a '75, if that helps line it up at all either. Looking at the engine bay, it was a white car too.

    Wow, it does look like that's the car. It's always cool to find things like that.
