I recently received this photo from a gentleman in Portugal, who has a bunch of photos of my grandparents during the 1971 TAP Rally, that he is using to hand make a 1/43rd scale model of this exact car…. 😀
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.

Hello everyone, happy 510 day, I hope it has been a good one for everyone Datsun oriented…
A rather special event has occurred and it is something that I want to share with you all… Many of you may not be familiar with The Dime, Quarterly… The Technical Newsletter written by and for the Datsun Five-Ten Enthusiast. It was arguably the best possible reference material for modifications and historical information for our beloved P510’s available during its life span. Sadly, it is no more, but thanks to the hard work and generosity of Julian Serles and the DQ team, the entire collection of issues has been converted into PDF format and been made available at The 510 Archives on Google docs at NO COST whatsoever!
You need a Google Drive account to access The 510 Archives, but it is a small price to pay to gain access to such amazing information. Head on over to The Dime Quarterly blog via the link here or on the right for more information.
Here a few photo’s of some great looking Datsuns I have found while scouring the internet during some of my many 510-fuelled search sessions over the past few years… Continue reading
As I mentioned earlier, here are a few photo’s from the August 2011 Cars in the Park show.
The show was great, with a lovely atmosphere that was helped along by the unbelievable variety of classic cars on display. I had a great time with my friends and my father, can’t wait for this years show!
I will start the photo’s (please keep in mind these photo’s were taken using my Samsung Galaxy Tablet, so they may not be the best quality…) with a nice lineup shot of some of the P510’s that were there:
