This is post number one for me. Just thought I'd sign up to keep up to date with the latest tips, techniques, and (yes) even trends for my classic car.
1971 Datsun 510 4door 1600 L16 4spd manual
My dad bought the car in the mid 70's and then it stop working in the early 90's. It has been in the family my whole life - before I was born. My dad never picked it back up again and it has been sitting in a field for the past 20 years. Read an article about a clean 510 and it got me thinking whatever happened to our family's old car. A quick phone call to my dad, and he told me I can have it. After a recent plane trip up there, I towed the car out of the dirt with all tires flat and I'm carefully planning on restoring it and passing it down to my kids eventually. It's actually in better shape than I thought and I'm pretty excited. Now I need to find a way to get the car down here San Diego and give it much needed love and attention in my garage.
Looking forward to a long and enjoyable build ahead of me.
