Datsun 510 Part Two

"Never lend your car to anyone to whom you have given birth. "
~ Erma Bombeck

One triumph of the early Nissan/Datsun cars is that many of the parts are interchangeable – engines, transmissions, suspension setups, etc., were all similar enough to swap with minor modifications. This allowed the Datsun 510 to be easily upgraded from the 1.6 L engine to the 2.0 L L20b motor, and to go from the 4-speed manual transmission to the more versatile 5-speed transmissions made available for the later Datsun Z-cars. – Wikipedia

Flowing curves of open country roads & industrial areas are some of my favorite locations for car photography. We were fortunate enough to have Jim at the local galvanizing plant doing security for the thanksgiving weekend. After a quick boot in the passenger seat around the plant he was more than happy to let us back the car in and pose a few shots. The wisps of vapor rising behind the car are from the sulphuric acid baths used to clean the metal before its dipped in liquid zinc.
