Here is the only photo my father has of his first P510… May 1975, and he only paid R730-00 for the entire car! 😀
This past week has been a particularly difficult one… The new daily driver has met a premature mid-life crisis this past Thursday, which is very difficult to handle at the moment.
She now has not got a nose anymore as my father made a U-turn in front of a young woman who then proceeded to very kindly remove the front end of my new wheels… I had to sit helplessly in my dads car on the side of the road and watch it happen all in slow motion…
She used to look like this: 😀
She now looks like this: 😦
Thankfully my father is unhurt!
Now it is back to spares hunting mode to trace a complete front end to repair the car… Fingers crossed I can actually find something that is in a useable condition!
Not a great feeling to have three Datsuns that are all stuffed and one that is working but not licensed…
Cheers for now
This past weekend was a non-stop Datsun PA10 affair from start to finish! It started early on Saturday morning when I re-installed my freshly cleaned fuel tank and brand new hard line for the fuel supply to the motor. It turned out very well, with the fuel float now working again after being cleaned.
So after getting permission from my father I have decided to share his rally car with you today. All these photos have been retaken from prints my father has kept over the years.
So after 30 years of hard, unforgiving use my dad decided he was going to have his car resprayed to bring it back to life… Best decision he has made since making me haha!
Car went from looking like this:
