You may remember those movie cars from a few weekends back. Lucky for us, artist Scott Park is both quite prolific and quite the automobile admirer. This week he brings us this Datsun 510, part of a series which includes a DeLorean, a Mustang, and a BMW 2002.
The Datsun 510 started out as a lowly economy car from a Japanese brand with a funny name when people were still buying American tanks in vast numbers. Cars like the 510 and the 240Z, though, showed most people Stateside that they didn't have to settle for what passed back then as the cream of the crop from Detroit's Malaise Era.
As time has passed the 510 has come to position itself as a great base for some aftermarket tuning. 510s look great with hot paint jobs, lowered suspensions, big wheels, and even enormous turbos. I know we already have the Jalopnik Fantasy Garage, but a Datsun 510 would go in mine.
