Neat, might have to try that sometime on my waggs... Of course, cluster visibility has improved significantly since I cleaned the whole cluster properly today :sport-smiley-004:

Whenever I feel like my office work is a bit too stressful (or boring for that matter), I turn to this thread, and I'm always relieved. :D

Looks like your 510 has been discussed on the forum way before you laid your hands on her Komi. :) Just came across this while I was reading through some old posts.

Anyway, some pics of the engine please?

No irage. Closer to hell, a better guess. A little more modern practicality for an old dog.

A day more for the auction. Having everything crossed for the tach!

Will post done photos soon,

Thanks man. Tachometer went for 260$ on eBay. That's more than the cost of the L16 :'(

Bought a period gear knob as a consolation prize!

Someone wanted that particular tachometer very badly! Show us your gear knob then! Does it have the pattern or a script?

Also, are you fitting fender mirrors on your 510?

Pattern. From a seller in Kuwait. I'll upload a photo. No mate I like door mirrors.

A Datsun 510 isnt quite the type of car that loosens panties of the typical girl of the said school IMO :P

HAHA! Unfortunately, girls who like chaps in vintage sports cars wearing leather driving gloves and Aviators aren't among us at all...

Somebody invent a time machine FFS!! :sport-smiley-004:

Well I found one! They're there, Jaliya. I suggest try Devi Balika!!

Recent conversation:

"Bubs, lets go to Galle over the weekend, but I'm afraid the car might overheat on the highway"

"So? We'll take lots and lots of water! Lets go!"

So here I was heading home this evening when I peeked into a small used car lot and spotted a very familiar face. It was another Datsun 510!


I quickly turned around and came back to investigate. Predictably it was a 4 door, a 10 sri example this time. So deffo recon, considering it had the 60s horizontal speedo. It had most of the parts on it but it had the unloved classic feel to it. The rear quarters must have been turned out of filler. and possibly by hand from the looks of things. Apparently it runs but couldn't check cos there was no battery in it and the owner was out at the time.


Seems like all the hidden 510s are resurfacing suddenly.

Nice! I honestly didn't believe this car could generate so much interest!

Didn't drive it whole day yesterday, and it was so difficult!
