    Nice build! I like the fact he kept it clean. The blankets & autograph add a nice touch as well. Sick photos/write-up! Keep up the good work!

    Very nice! Not too often you see a 510 this clean. Believe me ive put hands
    on this car.Really nice shots and very detailed write up. More old skools

    The only thing that made me go What The F@#k was the two different front seats instead of a matching pair. (pet hate) Other than that this is sick and id be stoked to own this!!

    This car is not only unbelievably clean in the pictures, but sounds like a true champion in person. Pictures (no matter how good they are) do this car justice.

    Love the write up and the pics! @omglol – I think Form and Function is a concept that should be equally dismissive of both the Hella Flush and the Hella Functional bandwagoners. And nothing is less cool than a dude mouthing off like he’s better or smarter than someone else because he has different taste in cars. I never liked it from the Corvette and Muscle car guys looking down on Import guys and I don’t like it between the Hella Flush & Hella Functional idiots. One group thinks a car isn’t cool unless it can barely drive on a regular city street and the other thinks a car isn’t cool if it has anything on it that doesn’t add a measurable increase in torque or HP. As usual in these situations, the truth lies somewhere in the middle – far away from both camps. It is possible to optimize looks and performance without a major sacrifice of either if you’re a balanced car builder – and sometimes it’s ok to be slightly left or right of center depending on what you’re going after. Believe it or not, not everyone wants a 700HP street legal race car – some guys just want to have reasonably good offset, decent wheels and a clean ride to chill in. Nothing wrong with that – unless you’re a car snob…which IMO is quite “gei”…as in “gei-sha”.

  7. That is a really beautiful car – attention to detail on it is pretty amazing. I love the interior and the engine bay is sick.

    Photos, as always from Oliver, are just bang on!

  9. That’s a nicely put together dime! Love these kind of features on MM… And that Histrix seat???? Damnn. I’ve lusted for one of those since the first time I saw one.

    The ride is looking SIIIIIIIIICKKKKK brotha. I would definitely like to do some more pinstriping on that thing. Hit me up homie! Peace!

    The car is beautiful in person!… And now I can see how photogenic it is too!… What the pics don’t show is how much fun this car is to drive like sweetryanitas says it does sound sweet and it handles like a go kart!

  12. this guy has a lot of passion about cars and it shows in his ride! plus lots of little details one could normally miss if the owner doesn’t point them out. and this guy does just that and very proud of the fact too!

  13. JP! Congrats on the write up, it’s much deserved. You know I love this car, she’s beautiful in person and the pictures are amazing! Thumbs up to the photographer : ) Congrats again JP, good job buddy! So proud!

  14. Gus-Gus

    Nice car. Awesome to see a homies car getting love on the web! As for the haters? Where’s your car……

  17. NuggetG60YorkshireUK

    nothing wrong with this fine example, even the usual haters can’t fault it. love those rims, they look like CCW’s. – need to post a Video Roll of this beauty. Thanks for the run-down.

  18. Nick Rippon

    Can anyone help me out. What are the full name of the CCW Classics wheels on this car.
    I’m currently restoring my own 510 and I love the look of this. Any help? I can’t find them anywhere?

  19. @Nick Rippon: Actually I’m pretty sure those wheels are just called CCW Classic. (I could be wrong?) They’re available pretty readily in custom sizes from CCW, which is based in Florida I believe. I don’t know them personally, or else I’d give you a contact name and phone number.
