Default Yea or nay on this Datsun 510

I don't really NEED another car but I am considering buying this 510. Always had weak spot for 510s and BMW 2002.
Any other dime lovers out there?

I know. Very clean not riced out.
I would probably prefer an NA FJ20 for high revs but the VG motors are tough, cheap and plentiful.
Purists won't like the Work 03 knock off wheels(at 2K for a set I will pass myself) and the diff and tranny probably aren't up for hard core drag racing but she sure is purty.
Now, how to explain this to the wife??

I'd take the chrome bumpers off, or black them out. Other than personal preferance that makes my pants tight.

I think you technically need them for the car to be road legal, that being said I'd powder coat them black.

It is so cleanly done. If you can, buy!

Now that you've had a bunch of people tell you to do what you already wanted to do, are you going to do it?

Just tell your wife that you were eloquently persuaded to get it. Then give her a ride after the fact and she will understand.

It's on my list of "cars to acquire and swap" but I personally wouldn't drop $20K on it. But, that's me. I'd have to do the swap myself.

It's a nice car, tho.

Agreed. It's nice, but 20 grand nice? I think not. Lots of cars can be had for a lot less.
