AAD Datsun 510 Day (Part 1)

May 10th signifies DATSUN 510 amongst the owners. Its a day where we commemorate the P510 Datsun - and we try to get our rides out on the road that specific day. All About DATSUN decided to celebrate the day with an open invitation to any car enthusiast to come along for a drive/cruize through Stellenbosch, Helshoogte, Franshhoek, Theewaterskloofdam, Grabouw & Sir Lowry's Pass.

The weather almost put a stop to the drive - and it didn't help that my own ride was out of action - due to detonation in the block. But the AAD Familia stood up and I managed to enjoy myself with a passenger view in my friends 510 - Thanks Clive!  :-)

A few of us met in Kuils River - Zevenwaght Mall early morning - okay it was just after 8am. It looked a little dreary, but seemed perfect weather for a trip through the Boland.
