Luis’ 1970 Datsun 521

Luis had a dream of owning a Nissan D21 truck since his dad owned one when he was a kid. While looking for one, he stumbled across his Datsun 521. Falling in love, he had to get it! It came pre-setup with a few things and he added his own flair and parts line up to it. As you can tell, it’s not your average truck you see setup like this. Not only that, it’s really well kept and maintained. Currently, he has Mono Prime wheels installed and pictured, as he gets the Epsilon wheels, (one of several sets we’ve imported), polished. I’ll include some pictures of the Epsilon wheels in the “More Pictures” area at the bottom of the article.

I’m fortunate enough to have customers of all forms of the automotive world. I really enjoy that about this business; you can have customers and relations as well as friendships with people you may have never would have been able to meet. It’s really fun to learn about builds and vehicles with the same taste but a different platform than your usual slammed, drift, or track oriented “car”.
