510 in LeMons

In the US there is an event called the 24 Hours of LeMons.

Each LeMons race is for cars purchased, fixed up, and track-prepped for a total of 500 dollars or less. But before reaching the grid, you’ll have to survive trials like the Personal-Injury-Lawyer Anti-Slalom, the Marxist-Valet Parking Challenge, and the Wide Open Throttle Rodthrowapalooza. Twelve hours into the race, the car voted People’s Choice is called in and awarded a cash prize; simultaneously, the car voted People’s Curse is called in and summarily destroyed. At the end of 24 hours, a gala awards ceremony plies the survivors with trophies, plaques, and four-figure purses in canvas bags full of nickels. What’s not to like?

There hasn’t been a Datsun 510 in the history of the event. Until now. Through Jalopnik comes news of the Team WWF (World WRECKING Federation) Datsun 510.

    NoooOOOO!!! Why waste a restoreable PL510???? HL510 knock your socks off. A L20 would be a great lemons engine. Cheep and tough as nails.
