The Nissan Bluebird Is A Little Beast

Saying that a car is able to get under one’s skin sounds like an exaggeration, but Nissan enthusiast Troy Ermish has more than a little appreciation for the 510. Ermish says that his love for the model comes down to one similarity between him and his cars: they’re tough.

These Chevrolet Impalas Are A Lifelong Obsession
“How can you spend 12 hours out there and work on those things all day?” Don Rogers’ wife will sometimes ask, to which he replies, “The day just flew by…I don’t know what happened.”With a love for the iconic Chevrolet Impala, Rogers’ garage is filled with two, both ’64 models. One is a hardtop, the other a convertible. What makes Rogers a bit different from most enthusiasts, however, is that he does all of the work on his cars himself.

Great car. Looking forward to the day you will feature the Datsun 610 😉

Man, you guys keep knock in’ it outa’ the park with the videos!
Featuring Troy and his 510s once again brings the focus on the scrappy, hands on side of car culture that’s not about prestige but about the connections. Not only between man and machine, but also within the community. Troy’s been respected in the Datsun community for quite a while now and it’s amazing to me to see the continued love of these unstoppable little cars 43 years after seeing the BRE cars at “The Glen” 2.5 Trans Am Challenge. Nice job everybody!

Wow, Bluebird! That’s a car I never thought would see here in the US. When I was a kid back in Japan, I thought those cars were just lame, like today’s Camry and Corolla, never paid any attention to them. Except for the SSS. Even then I knew that was something special.
