    Datsun 510

    I’m in Santa Ana. Turbos are fun. I got to drive a few and sr turbos too, but I’m happy with it natural too. There’s just enough kick in the low end to keep me happy.

    Datsun 510

    Where in Maui are you? That’s my favorite island! Kihei and hana rule!!!! I almost went sr turbo but the ka has enough low end torque to satisfy me. I would probably crash with all that power. I don’t race or drive like I used to. Right now I’m struggling with the idea that might have to sell to make room for an 02. The wifes home gym is in the garage and I don’t think she’d me happy seeing another old car where her spin bike is. I really don’t know what to do right now. I have a lead on a potential 02 and have been talking to the guy for the week. Just need to make up my mind, argh!

    Datsun 510

    Ka24de. When I bought this thing I said I’m gonna leave it alone. It was primered had one seat and missing everything but After I started with the sound system it just kept going, lol. Restomod is fine as long as it was taken care of and done with good taste. It’s the rust I’m avoiding. I was gonna fly out to Connecticut to check out the silver one but the dude told me he had a serious inquiry coming by and would let me know. I’d would prefer a west coaster though.

    Datsun 510

    Been a very long time since I’ve been on here. Sold my 73 tii clone well over 10 years and got into Datsuns. Had 521 truck for a few years then I got my 510. It’s been fun but I think it’s time to get back into the 02’s. Man prices sure have gone up since I last checked. So far I’m thinking those 10k and under bargains are out of the question since I’m looking for something pretty much complete it doesn’t need to be show ready but rust free and reliable. The search is offcically on right now. Here are some pics of the Datsun that took up the last few years of my life.

    The search continues...

    I’ve been looking at all those too but Im trying to stay local so I can see the car in person. Im looking for roundie but if it’s clean and pre-smog I’d be okay with square tail lights too if the price was right. I just dont want a big project/money pit just a nice driver would do me just fine. I recently dumped a whole lot of money into my last project only to trun around and sell it for half of my investment so right now I just want a driveable clean ’02 I can enjoy for a few years. My mechanic Randy has a super clean ’74 tii on consignment at his shop if you’re interested. It drove like new and he has done all the work on it so it’s a solid car. It has a newer BMW grey color I dont know the original color. Shortened front and rear bumpers and a few more things. Only thing the owner was asking $15k Randy told me it was quite negotiable I just was’nt into it though.

    I have been in the market for another 02 for about 1 year now. Prices have seemed to double since '06 for a nice clean '02. I stumbled upon this guy http://www.roadfly.com/bmw/classifieds/cars/detview.php?view=46581&sortby=&dir= price was kinda high and I was scared of the carbs. After talking to the owner for about 1 month after my initial test drive I decided to take to it Randy @ Black Forest BMW here in Costa Mesa. He has worked on a few of my bimmers and my '73tii clone. Boy am I glad I paid for the PPI. I was about to shell a good chunk of change for what Randy claimed to be "one big headache of a car" I'm sure it would make a nice car for someone just not me so time to keep looking.. Anyone here have a nice clean roundie that they are getting bored of or just need to move on to something I would be more than happy to take it off your hands.

    Ebay #251129200084, beware!

    matching numbers but not matching cars. i have a ’69 datsun with blue plates so does that mean it was not continuously registered?

    next question... how do u think the k-Fischer is gonna play with the built top end? Or would I need a new head?

    Webers on a tii...

    Yes it does come with all the tii bits. It is missing the air intake can thing but I have one from my old tii in the garage. Vin and motor numbers are matching too.

    Well no money has been spent on anything as of yet as I am just looking and I take it it is not a popular thing to do from all the replies. The reason I even asked was because I was thinking about getting it back to original anyways. Just needed to see if anyone has done it and what cost were involved. The guy selling made it seem as easy as replacing the carbs with a the K-fisch and “viola”.
