John Paul - 1970 Datsun 510
I have actually have owned multiple 510s and have been doing so many swaps for people in my front yard. I realized I had no physical proof that I can showcase my skills

John Paul - 1970 Datsun 510
Marvin Recinos - @mr2mivin
I am from the Philippines, specifically from IloIlo. Came here to California from Guam in 1999. Working as an Electrician in a Pharmaceutical company from 3 am to 3 pm and for the rest of the day, I would be working on one of my cars.
I started getting into cars when I first had a hard body truck. My dream car was a Skyline Hako until I found out about Datsun 510s then I was hooked on these cars, I chose this car because when I first saw this car I thought the box style look was so cool, I just had to get one
I have actually have owned multiple 510s and have been doing so many swaps for people in my front yard. I realized I had no physical proof that I can showcase my skills. So I customized this car the way I wanted to, to show people what kind of work I can do for them. How do I explain my car, One word. Legend, there is nothing like a classic box style Datsun
It was built in my front yard when most people would pay to get their work done for them. I believe it is better to do your own work so if there is any failure there is no other person to blame but yourself, Trial and error = better mechanic.

I have done all the work myself, it actually only took me 6 months to build it the way it is now. I've worked with these cars for so long so it didn't take me too long to build mine.
Not really. This is my baby. I leave her in the garage and take her once in a while for shows. I actually daily drive a skyline.
My tip is that if there's a specific car that you want to build, then you better get that car now because the prices are insane. Get it before its unattainable.

A Skyline Hakosuka, But for now, my R32 should be fine for now.
