It was IMMACULATE. I didn't see a spec of dirt anywhere. The engine itself looked like brand new raw aluminum. Was pretty ridiculous.

Yup, there for ages. I haven't logged in there for a decent amount of time though.

Isn't it awesome? It was my "track event tomorrow... turbo dead... borrow header... weld up dump pipe exhaust... filter on IC... track time ready!" trick. Didn't even retune... was way to rich but No Cares!

Went to a local gathering the weekend after and confused a lot of people, I sat nearby to enjoy the confusion.

So for those that like the Fiat... i might be considering a trade (less than a year of ownership... odd for me) for a 510...

I was originally looking for 510s/128s, but found nothing. Now I found one that might be a viable straight trade, with 510 needing a bit of work engine wise. We'll see what happens, might check it out this weekend.

I had a 72 four door. Built 2ltr Roadstr motor and trans, 240z carbs. The guy who helped me build it had like, 9 of'em. So I'm biased, go for the 510. It will be hard to resist putting a motor in it. They are getting rare.

That is too cool Dave. I really liked your Fiat, but I think I like that Datsun even more.

Babyseat is 1000% easier to put into backseat through its own door though...

Stupid Datsun guy went from "lets meetup" to no responses. So I followed through with a wheel purchase I had my eye on.

Last picture before I finished rearranging the garage and putting the car into storage.
