Its been a little over a week since we featured this 510 and I honestly
miss it. This 72 Datsun 510 SR20DET for sale was built with so much style
and care, I can’t think of a better one. Thank you to the owner Raul for
letting us film your car before you sell it.
Filming this 510 was an interesting story as well. As Luke and I were
scouting spots near Raul’s house, we stumbled upon the actual US Nissan
Design center. This is the place where they designed the 370z and the Idx
(the new 510). What luck! The employees there were so awesome to let us
shoot some footage at there loading dock and main entrance. Over the 2
hours we were there, a lot of them came out to see Raul’s car. It was
pretty cool to see how much they all admired the styling of this car. I
guess they we’re paying respect to their elder ;)
What I loved about this SR20 510 was how it was such reliable daily driver.
While it looks like a showcar/racecar Raul comfortably drives it everyday.
He drove me around in it a little and I just couldn’t stop smiling. Being
such a lightweight car, the power is strong and the turbo is consistent. Oh and that sound, the SR20
screams if you want it to but it remains humble at low speeds.
I’ll be honest, this car isn’t for everyone. It’s only for those who
“get it”. It’s for those who know what this car stands for and is
about. Words don’t really explain it, it’s just the feeling you get
when see it and experience it. The next owner of this car is going to be
very happy. --Grayson Barbou
