It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

I like the forward leaning front end better.

 
 

They are all forward leaning.  ;)
 
Only difference is round or rectangle headlights.  :thumbup:
 


 

.... than the PL510.


It's so nice to see the HL get some attention.

Hmm, looks like the Aussies kept the old style dash with the later style headlights?  Or maybe someone switched parts around.  US, there's a BIG difference between '79 and 80.

 

1978 ('79 is similar).  Factory tach was a fairly rare option in 78-79.

510dash.JPG

 

 

80-81 gauges (full gauges and tach were standard):

 

81Wagon02.JPG

 

 

It's possible to put the '80-81 tach and speedometer into the '78-79 cluster, though the idiot lights aren't in the right places except the Charge light.  There's no oil light in a 80-81, and the brake light is in that position.  So, on my '78 Wagon the light marked Brake is actually the oil light, and the brake light makes the "4" in the tach glow brighter.  The 80-81 gauges are lit through the gauge faces, which are plastic, so the numbers "glow" much like most more modern dashes.  The 78-79 have metal faces and use reflected light like all prior Datsuns, and are harder to read.

Well, at least he gets 24 hours notice. That's more than most of us get. All most of us get is, "Mind that bus!" "What bus?" _splat_!

BTW, mine are not pretty.

 

I've had this wagon since June 1991:

78-wagonwheels02.JPG

 

 

The "Blue Beater" since Oct 1993:

 

78KHLA10.jpg

 

 

This one (and '81) since late 2006 or early 2007:

 

81_510WGN-2.JPG

 

 

 

 

A few from the past.

 

Had this one (bought wrecked, hard to see but the rear quarter was demolished) from June 1992 until scrapped in 1995.  Drove it until '94, after my Sister did in the front fender.   Engine (and driver's door) are in the Blue Beater above

 

Burg510-1.jpg

 

 

This one looked good only from this angle.  It had been rear ended, which isn't visible in this pic.  Had it from ~2000 until I traded it to Tdaaj as parts.  It still ran, but what can't be seen is rust had really run rampant and it was plainly unsafe to drive.  But I did drive it for 3 years anyway.  It ran really well.

 

80_510.jpg

 

 

This shows the rear quarter damage:

 

80HL510.jpg

 

 

I briefly had another just like it, but it too was rusted beyond help.  Since it had no engine and had been heavily parted, I simply scrapped it.  Never took pics.

 

Had a 3rd 2-door sedan from 2003-2004.  Had been someone's parts car, but it still ran.  Clutch was SHOT.  Couldn't get it to pass emissions, so traded it to a kid in Shelton who took the bumpers off and preceded to drive it into a ditch.  With no bumpers.  Tore it to hell in a month.  Worst part was I lost my '85 Mercury Colony Park due to the trade- it caught fire trying to tow the 510 to Shelton.

 

81HLA10-F.jpg

 

 

 

This was a sad one.  This car was gorgeous inside- totally reupholstered, and the outside was factory paint.  The hood had lost the clearcoat (may have been replaced), but the rest was perfect aside from the common rust spots on the rear hatch.  Bought it with a badly warped head, but it had 020 over flattops in it, I put a '81 200SX head on it and it ran like a dream.  Even the A/C worked perfect. 

 

81wheels05.JPG

 

10 days after I took that picture above, it looked like this:

 

wreck001.JPG

 

That's what happens when people don't pay attention.  A woman in an Explorer panicked when a wreck happened in the lane next to her, and she lost control, bounced off the center divider and slammed into me with her doors.  The front end damage on my car was from me getting knocked out of line, spun around, and into the center divider.

 

 

I've had 3 others not pictured.  One '78 Wagon I had in 1990-91, that got T-boned by a red-light runner.  One '78 Coupe that I rescued from a junkyard, and still have though it's buried in my Mom's garage.  And the other 2-door I mentioned above.

 

 

You may notice something:  I've never had a 4-door Sedan (in fact have never had a 4-door Sedan Datsun of any type), nor a 5-door Hatchback.  I've also never had a '79.  All the roundeyes I've had are '78s.  The blue, rear-ended 2-door was an '80, the rest were '81s.  So I've had 2 '78 wagons, 3 '78 Hatchbacks, 1 '80 2-door, 2 '81 2-doors, and 2 '81 Wagons.

They look the same, just different taillights. Oh, that's because A10 and B310 use the same chassis. Same suspension. Same dimensions. Same engine on the base A10.

Love the HL - the HLA10.
