Thought I've cleaned out the glove box, but I guess I didn't. Another awesome find :D

Bedford, NY is one town over from my hometown. I wish I had seen it buzzing around the country roads back in the day. Lots of fun driving round those parts!

That's a peach of a 510 you have there. Congratulations.

I'll try to keep the pictures coming (even though it's probably nothing exciting to see).

We're whores for any pictures. Stock 510s don't come up very often, so we're excited to see one when they do; at least I am.

Haha thanks everyone! I wasn't sure if this forum was really into stock cars.. but happy to hear that there are a few! Deep down I'd like to do some performance upgrades, but it kinda breaks my heart to do it to this particular car. :sleep: So stock it'll be. Pictures, hrm.. I haven't really done too much it or driven it, so i haven't been taking too many pictures.

 

 

Ignition light was on a couple weeks ago, but took the alternator to my electrician and he cleaned up the windings and it seems to be working just fine. Temperature gauge stopped working, so I pulled the wire and cleaned the ends, and now it seems to be working. The brake light indicator in the dash wasn't working, cleaned the contact/ground, and now it's working just fine. hrmm.. sounds like i will be doing a lot of that in the future :D but I'm still shock that everything works. So I'm still very lucky lol. 

 

 

However, everytime I drive it.. I feel like I have hundreds of questions about the car :( sigh, have a lot to learn. Again, any input/comments to any of my silly questions will be greatly appreciated. 

 

 

Will try and get some photos up soon!

There's things you can do to improve the car, but will still look stock. You could, and others will suggest for safety and some reliability factors, swapping in 280ZX front struts/brakes. They bolt right in. ZX rotors are vented and larger than stock, and have a larger caliper. It appears you have 14" wheels so caliper clearance shouldn't be an issue. Stock drums in the back is fine. Other smaller things like a rear swaybar will improve the cars handling in corners, if that's how you drive it.

Wow. Gorgeous car. I also have a 69 sedan, but it's nowhere near this nice. I'm gonna have to use this thread as reference, you have all the interior parts I'm missing.

Thanks for the tips and compliments :D

 

 

Drove it to work today. The original owner came by to check on another project car we are working on for him. He was happy to see it go to a good home. Nice guy.

Busta Nut - thanks! yes, I'm just trying to keep it simple and enjoy puttsing around town. Absolutely love driving this thing. :D Would like to come out Saturday, but I have plans and the rain isn't making me too adventurous with the 510 ;(
