510 Day Observed, in San Diego

The first ever Datsun meet put on by the San Diego 510 Crew (Ismael, Miguel & Ramon). This meet was conceived not only as a tardy 5-10 day celebration, but as a way to get any other Datsun models out of the garage. Word got out to the Toyota boys too, and some of them crashed the party (not referring to the black Camry that moved the cone to park there).

First off a Skyline Hakosuka HT. So far as we know, this car hasn’t been seen by the JNC public at large. So please welcome another member of the west coast Hakosuka Yakuza.

Freshly painted 260z resto-mod. The color suited the car and was a lot brighter in the flesh.

A bone-stock 510 survivor showed up. For sale too!

Datsun 210 (aka B310). Facelift model with rectangular headlights.

Hind end showing off the big-butt US-spec crash bumper.

Partial group shot (more about the Toyota crashers later).

Side shot of Buster’s Beach House–where most of the action took place. That owner of that ugly black Camry had the nerve to move the cone in order to park in that spot.

White 510 sedan with SR20DE power.

Right Hand Drive 510 Coupe aka “Redbird”.

Ismael’s yellow zonker 2-door – SR20DET powered.

Miguel’s flared 510 2dr with Watanabe R rims.

Ramon’s Grabber Blue 2-door.

Metallic blue 2-door 510.

Mike’s Skyline Hakosuka Sedan.

Pale yellow 510 2dr with carbon fiber hood.

White 510 goon with tinted windows and luggage rack.

Intense orange 510 2-door.

Datsun 620 pickup in Grabber Blue, Titan wheels and fender mirrors.

Some Toyotas showed up, but they weren’t turned away.

Special thanks to Buster’s Beach House for their hospitality!

    Nice little show. Far out colors, man. A Hako with an RB top mount IC? Interesting way to keep a stock image.

    Looked like a nice turnout! That black Camry reminds me when I worked in a restaurant. I would purposely turn the table in an awkward position and move the chairs to the wall, I’d even put a reservation note on the table. Yet I’d still have people moving the table and bringing chairs, It’s not pleasant to tell a party of 6 grumpy old people to get another table.

    The turquoise 510 with the army drab Wats is so, so hot.
