Simon Labelle: 1972 Datsun 510

Simon Labelle decided to sell his Honda S2000 to pursue a dream of his - building a special and unique restoration. In 2015 Labelle picked up a 1972 Datsun 510, and planned to leave the original car nearly unrecognizable when he was done. With a Hakosuka conversion and an SR20 swap, the classic car is a far cry from what it once was.
