Bagged, Body Dropped, Rotary powered Datsun 510

When I posted a small update about my own Datsun the other day, it reminded me of a build that I’ve been meaning to post for a while. This car may share a model name and basic shape with my own, but that’s where the similarities end. This 510 has been cut, chopped, grinded and welded to within an inch of it’s life, now sitting on airbagged Toyota truck suspension with an angry rotary engine on tyre smoking duties. It may look rusty on the outside, but underneath that wonderful patina are some surgical-grade underpinnings.

    Not my thing. Pitty to have done this to a 510. But then again I’m not into playing dress up and am quite an uncool kind of guy.

    Performance oriented builds please and less of things developed as static displays for car park bragging.

    I for one love these kinds of builds. I rather see this car driving than dying in some backyard.
