  1. My goodness what a beautiful Datsun 510. That clean of one, in that condition.. what an absolute beaut.

  2. I’m 16 and just bought myself a “barn find” with a super cool story behind it. I live in Michigan, and a man from NY who has a hunting cabin here bought a 1974 Chevrolet Custom Deluxe Camper Special K20 to use at this cabin when he was there. I’m the 4th owner, and the second owner stored it for many years, meaning it has 4000 original miles! Everything on It is factory. 350 4bbl, sm465 Muncie 4spd, and an np203 full time 4×4 t case. The truck is super badass and I’m super proud to own it.

    1. Ch3vyN0va77 what a great story….you are one lucky bugger…Have a lot of fun and be nice to her….cheers

    2. My favorite body style of truck ever. I have a 76 k5 and a few 80’s model trucks in the yard

    3. SAVE YOURSELF LOTS OF GAS; CONVERT IT TO PART TIME. YOU CAN DO IT FOR FREE BY REMOVING THE GEAR UNDER THE CHROME COVER AT THE END OF THE AXLES. THEN PUT THE TRANS CASE LEVER IN FULL LOCK. THE BEST WAY GO EVEN BETTER; REMOVE THE FRONT DRIVE SHAFT ALSO. THIS WILL GIVE YOU TRUE 2WD FOR HUGE GAS SAVING,AND USELESS WEAR ON THE FRONT AXLE AND DRIVE SHAFT. I USE TO DO THIS EVERY YEAR. YOU WILL NOTICE A BIG DIFFERENCE WHEN LET OFF THE GAS GOING DOWN THE ROAD, AND IN YOUR WALLET. IT IS EASY TO DO OR YOU CAN BUY LOCK OUT HUBS, BUT THE FRONT SHAFT WILL TURN ALL THE TIME..

  3. You should post addition extra or extended videos that show more details and show more of the discussion. I often wish these videos were longer!

  4. Just the other day I said to myself I would love to own a Citroen Ami 6
    I think I want that car….

  5. that was a nice lil trip seeing a lovely lil citreon ami 8 and then a 1 owner from me datsun 510 with the plastic still on the door cards! then some usa car that was mint inside and we end on a farrari that looks great even with a lil rattle,

  6. Those cars are gorgeous! I’ll admit, the 510 didn’t surprise me to see; but the Ami blew my mind!
    Fantastic show, keep exploring!

  7. Well, now I know where the inspiration came for the front end of my ’82 Toyota Celica GT. The ’81 Ferrari!

  8. Are any of these for sale? The 510 I would love to have and that is my favorite color on it. Actually if the Citroen was for sale at the right price I would take it.

  9. *Please* don’t let that Datsun go to someone who will cut it up and mod it. It needs to stay 100% original!!

    1. That’s the type of car a museum would be interested in. Unbelievable that it still has the plastic on the doors.

  10. I still have dreams about my old ’72 Datsun 510, it was the first car I bought after coming home from Vietnam. I was inspired by an article I had read in Car and Driver, while in Vietnam, about all the things that could be done to the car to make it a real road racer. I did all the suspension mods, limited slip 410 rear diff and bought an ex-factory rally engine with 125 HP!! I autocrossed it. beating a lot of expensive sports cars for “fast time of the day.” I love this show, keep it coming.

    1. I find it creepy.
      Why would someone who drives the car not remove it (88000 miles means that he wasn’t keeping it as a garage queen and hoping that it skyrockets up in price).
      Who is he saving it for?

      He’s only ruining the experience for him self.

      It’s like people that puts seat covers in their car in order to have “nice” seats when selling it.
