Simon Labelle

There's so much about the 1972 Datsun 510 that drew in Simon Labelle, it’s hard for him to even put it in words. “Because DATSUN!” he writes when asked why he chose the 510 as his platform. "Old school [style] with the old school smell, a part of Japanese car history. Very great, nice, rare, small and lightweight RWD car.” Look closely and you’ll see where Labelle has included his own flare, such as the SR20DE engine swap with custom parts, custom driveshaft and RS Watanabe wheels wrapped in Toyo Proxes 4 tires. Keep an eye out for more modifications in the future, including a front air dam and bigger air intake, as well as new fender mirrors, header and exhaust.
