1970 Datsun 510
My name is Luis Correa I’m from Morelia Michoacan Mexico, I came to California when I was 14 years old I've been working various jobs but today I’m a truck driver, my hobby is working on cars, fixing them and spending quality time with my family. Since kid in Mexico, all my family had Datsun 510’s and I always liked the square body and how the 510 handles to drive, just fun to drive
My uncle had 510’s as a taxi cab in Morelia. I remember having a fun and exciting time learning how to drive these little cars. When I had the opportunity to own one I didn’t think twice and right away started working on it and started doing modifications to it. This is the 3rd 510 that I have owned so as soon as I had the opportunity to modify it I knew I needed some extra power so an SR20DET swap was meant to be for my 510, big wheels and lots of modifications to make it what it is today.
It feels great having this 510 which has become a family car and we will try to keep it in the family for generations to come to keep bringing fun and experience to drive a JDM car. I like to mix some of the unique features of the original body with all his chrome trim mixed with some modified and more performance parts mix some of the original with a more modern look rather than just a plain original look.

Most of the work has been done between myself and my brother Eduardo Gonzalez @tepaswaps during the build on and off it took us about 7 years to get it done mechanical, electrical etc.
Some minor modifications like rear brakes of the Nissan 300zx Z32, full stainless steel exhaust, maybe a bigger turbo.
My advice is to take your time to find the right prospect and make sure what you want to do with it, original or modified because once you start to modify it is no turning back.
My biggest support is my wife lily Correa and my kids Louie and Emily, my brother Eduardo Gonzalez @tepaswaps, club Datsun Michoacan, Jerry Hernandez, @mr2miving all his photos, Chris toledo who painted the car, johnny silva of @reddotspeed, @love20bee and all the Datsun community who always supporting me
My dream car is always been the Datsun 510 and always will be
