    My Silver 210

    Hey everyone, My name is Justin and this is my Datsun. She's a 1980 210 (The round headlight style) with an A14 and 5spd with only 37k original miles! :shock: I've always been big on the rwd drive imports. I had been looking for an old school car for awhile on the CL. I had been looking at some Z cars and the 240sx to make my daily driver/project toy when I found her. The man was asking 4800 for her so I gave him a call to go see the car. When I saw her, that was it, I knew I had found my car. The wheels he had on the car were ugly. He wanted to keep them and I didn't want them! So got me some new wheels with tires and knocked the price down to 3500. The car is super clean and so far all I've done is valve cover gasket and have all my seats redone.

    Here's some pics.
    This is with the old wheels.



    Here with the new wheels.

    Woo! Sorry for the pic dump but I have alot more to post for another time. Still got some things to do to her. I hope to make some friends and watching all these lovely imports you all got here.

    Wow! You just don't see 210s that clean. Good to see the old wheels go, those were ugly.

    I love seeing that Datsun dealer license plate frame!

    Thanks guys, I really lucked out on this I think. I love it! Has I've said (If I did) before, I still got some work to do. Mostly interior, the carpet has got to go. Looks nice but it's old and got flaws. I'm also planning some custom gauge and dash work. So anyways, time for more pic's of my seats.

    Goodbye old and ugly...





    Hello new sexy!





    Two tone, black vinyl with dark gray cloth. Loving it!
    More to come, thanks for watching! 8)

    Sure thing, the guys that done this charged me 580 for all the seats in the two tone. Let me know what you want done and I'll get you a quote. Was this last Saturday, I got the subwoofers out of the trunk and the dash remove so I can get my new Kenwood installed. I can't deaide on weather to leave the faux wood grain on the dash alone or replace it, hmmm....

    Moar pic's!

    Pulling out the subwoofer box. I had to remove both taillights and the trunk latch just get this dam thing out!!!!



    That bastard weighed a ton! I swear the box was almost solid!

    Lookie, I got a trunk and it's soo clean!!




    Here's what my dash looks like as of today....it's not pretty.

    Ugh! I got to clean up all that wiring so I can get my new radio wired up right.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. More to come and thank for watching!
