I'm hoping to get to bring this out to an autocross soon.  This project has taken quite a bit of time and I'm now ready to see it perform.  I just need to do a few safety things (like flush the brakes one more time) before I bring it out.

It's a 1968 2-Door Datsun 510.  All new suspension, willwood brakes and a new Rebello naturally aspirated fuel injected 2.4L putting out 240hp/240TQ.  Enough power for the 2000lbs car to be lots of fun and to be honest quite scary with no assists or power steering.

I'm sure it will be in a class that it could never actually be competitive in... but I've decided that it has to just be about the fun of driving and enjoying a project.

The 510 is one of my favourite classic cars. I would rally the wheels off a 510!

Sorry, Doug.  I'm still getting familiar with the ins-and-outs of this new forum software.  I think it has a spam algorithm that prohibits links until after the first few posts.  Let me look into this and see if I can find a solution.

Ok, you should be able to post links. Brand new users cannot post links in their first post, but once their first post is approved, they should be able to post links as per normal.
