It comes but once every hundred years and this month shall go down in history as the first Dime month ever. It’s the 5th month of the 10th year of the new century and we can think of no better way to celebrate 5/10 than to show our love for the mighty little Datsun 510!
And what better way to kick off Dime month than to spend some time at Hooniversity with a fantastic lecture by our very own, Professor Deartháir. Pay attention, class as there will be a test.
Now that you are up to speed, let’s have a look at some kick-ass retro commercials. First up we have a little hoonage from 1973.
Love that exhaust note! The alien sound effects were pretty bitchin’ too!
Next up we have one from ’71 complete with Tang! What’s not to love? mmmmm hoontang…
Dang even new cars today are not as shiny as the wagons in that commercial.
Lastly, I will leave you with some 510 1/4 mile shenanigans:
Ooooh, thats giving me naughty thoughts about Eleanor now…
Tune in all month for more great Datsun articles and if you have any cool 510 stuffs pass it along and we will fit it in somewhere.
