Just bought a 72 510 tonight. Been wanting one of these for years, and I was looking for something RWD to play with.

thats a very nice specimen. I dont normally like japanese cars but I must say, the 510 is one fine unit. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: A new addition to my garage!! (Rabbit 16v)

I think the 510 is what got me into VW's in the first place. My friend's older brother was always working on them and I thought they were badass. Then I saw a golf with dual rounds when I got my license and it reminded me of the 510's front end. I guess I just love old skool boxy cars.

Yowza!! Now that's what I'm talkin bout' (Kip Dynamite voice) I think that a sr20 swap is the route I want to take, but I'm gonna take my time and use it for a daily for a while while I round up ideas and parts and such.(I have a 5 min commute) Yeah, I want a car I can do doughnuts in!!!

Re: A new addition to my garage!! (travy420)

Congrats, those cars are so fun.
My dad had a few dimes a couple of years ago, sold em all for one sum of $700. Made me sad. One was in real good shape and the other two were good parts cars (peanut head, coils, msd ignition). My uncle in Cali has a real sweet one that is a torque monster.

I would kill to get my hands on a Datsun 510, always will be one of my favorite cars.
Too bad I've only seen a handful of these on the road, and 99% of the ones I do see usually are rusted out of control or have been ruined with tacky modifications.

Re: A new addition to my garage!! (JesterVr6 Too!)

Yeah, I'm really excited to take this baby home tonight and get going on it. I bought it on a whim because you don't come across these things very often. The last owner said there is always people asking how much he would sell it for, or notes left on it with phone numbers making offers. I don't think I'll ever be getting rid of it!
