#1529708 Doors

Posted by hobbes_the_cat on 16 November 2017 - 01:41 PM

The window frame on front wagon doors are a fraction of an inch taller than front sedan doors.
So close that the doors will usually fit on either but it is noticeable where the front and back frames meet and looks funky if you use the wrong one. Probably won't seal water out either.

Same free Datsun ad. This time in Portland. Must be a scam.

#1525905 Vehicles you have seen years later, and regret selling

Posted by hobbes_the_cat on 28 October 2017 - 07:32 AM

Sold my white 4-door 510 to pay off some taxes. Had a 2.1 stroker, twin webers, coilovers, etc.
saw it on Craigslist about a year later totally gutted with the paint stripped off, being sold as a shell. Bummer.

Funny, I was just sitting here thinking, man, Port Orchard isn't far away from Bremerton I wonder if... Yep. : )

Paint it and put it back together Hobbes!



Yup that's the plan. I want to get some color on it quick so I can put it together over the fall/winter


Saw it last night and immediately msg Hobbes. Any more pictures?

No pics yet as I still haven't swapped out of photobucket. But man I have not seen a rust free 510 like this in a while.

That's the wagon of doom. Icehouse built the original version I believe and the next owner added more mods. Pretty sure there is a build thread floating around here for it from back in the day.

Edit: here's the thread but the pics are all dead. :/

didn't take long for that guy on here to try to flip his car for a huge profit.


I don't know that guy but it looks like he invested some cash and definitely some time into it. Bought it as a non runner, cleaned it up, put a new Weber on it etc. I don't consider that a "flip". I like to see guys save a car from rusting away and get em back on the road. I doubt he'll get his asking price but good for him if he does. Maybe he'll use the money to save another one.


#1494347 Wrecking Yard Report

They will sell it, $800+tax I was going to buy it but I'm omw to SoCal and they will not sell it unless the buyer is present to do all the paperwork, they won't hold it either and I'm not the only guy calling about it either



That's worth $800, no question. Someone will get a nice little project. Glad they're willing to sell it whole.

I love the idea of a vintage NASCAR stance. I'm sure it'll be unique when your done.

Daaaang. Well that explains why it didn't turn. If the crank can't be saved, shoot me a message. I have a buddy that probably has a good one that he'd sell.
