No, it’s not a new national holiday, but I did enjoy a day of F10 destruction with my buddy Jon, when I helped him strip two of the saddest looking F10s I have ever seen. Jon acquired these two, a sedan and a coupe for free (not that anybody would actually part with any money for them), as he figured there were still many useful parts to be had. And he was right. The coupe had been in a very hard front end smash, which had actually trapped the engine, making removal somewhat difficult, but using a length of chain and my Datsun 910, we quickly had the front end pulled out. The sedan had also been wrecked and was incredibly rusty, so no usable body panels were saved, but it did provide an engine and transmission and numerous other mechanical parts. Datsun parts are getting too rare now to let even sad wrecks like these pass you by. More pics below…
