When a car rolls off the production line it is considered equal with its siblings. A machine stamped chassis number being the only feature that would distinguish it as an individual. Over time they begin to develop their own personality and every old car has a story to tell.
The tale of some of my previous old cars would best be described as tragedies. Swathes of filler hidden by fresh paint, electrical bodge jobs performed by (inept) monkeys and nasty odours emanating from upholstery stains that even a C.S.I. Forensic Unit would have a hard time identifying.
You don’t need to be an Automotive Psychologist to diagnose the personality traits exhibited by these poor, abused cars. The healing process can be long and difficult and may require years of intensive therapy.
Mubarak Al Mansouri avoided all these pitfalls when he set his sights on buying this Datsun 510, that we stumbled across at The Chase, held at the Dubai Autodrome, Dubai. With nearly 15 years of documented history and a cabinet full of trophies this little Bluebird is practically Datsun Royalty.
