Default Turbo 5.3 LS powered Datsun 510 Wagon

I have been helping a friend of mine with his Datsun wagon. We drug it to my shop....quite literally when the rear brake linings fell off and wedged the rear brake tight!

We scabbed together some driveline pieces and used the stock rear axle for tuning etc until it started making noises of destruction. Picked up a ford 8.8 trak lok rear with 3.73 gears and disc brakes from the pick a part along with an extra short side axle. Narrowing in process!

I always liked those little 510s.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
