The Datsun 510 Is Rarer And More Memorable Than A GT-R, Here's Why

This enthusiast has owned over 230 510s.

Nissan may be known for the GT-R and commuter vehicles, but back in the 60s there was a time when it produced tiny, lightweight vehicles that were just fun to drive. Troy Ermish has a great appreciation for the Datsun 510 and has come to own more then 230 of them. Ermish started racing 510s in the late 80s and went on to supply fellow enthusiasts with parts, as well as all-out racecars. He’s worked on some pretty famous Datsuns, which include Bob Sharp’s, Rob Dyson’s and the most successful SCAA national car, too.

Ermish also owns an extremely rare Nissan Bluebird SSS with a 1.6 engine that is his daily driver. Watch Ermish’s story and let it take you to a time when Nissan made a car that wasn’t necessarily good but could do a little bit of everything.
