Gino Guillen: 1971 Datsun 510

Gino Guillen's father was into the Datsun platform and old muscle cars, and when he picked up his 1971 Datsun 510, he intended to carry on the family tradition. With the engine from a 1998 240SX and the transmission of a 280ZX, he has upgraded the classic Datsun's driveability, and modified the car inside and out to suit his own style.
