Datsun 510 - Vexel by dangeruss Datsun 510 - Vexel by dangeruss
Vexel: Vector-Pixel Hybrid.

Still a "tuner" car, but in a totally different vein. This one's a custom Datsun (Nissan) 510 circa 1970 with a neat engine swap and HKS / Greddy turbo installation. RacingHart C4 wheels were modeled in 3D Studio MAX and "toon" rendered, The rest is all Photoshop. See my Journal and Scraps for more on "vexels"

Nice.
B210 grill, eh?
I raced these for 10 years. Great capture- you got the feel of it 100%

Love the 'toon render settings by the way. Just enough, and not too much.

fucking awesome man. ive currently got a datsun1200 (b110) still looking for a 1600 (thats what we call the 510's). ive always loved the 1200's and 16's but the 510's you can just get so much lower than a 1200. new zealand and aussie are definately have a huge datsun culture. (mainly 1200's and 510's but also 120ys 180bs etc). We never got the 2 door sedan version of the 1600 (well maybe a few but stuff all, just like the wagons).
but anyway, sorry for my rambling, awesome work man. im definately much more of an old school car addict than the plastic ricers of today (not meaning to offend). a couple other cars that might spark your interest..perhaps a mk1 cortina, a datsun 1200, ke20 or ke 30 corolla, even a rx3 sedan or coupe or an rx2 sedan eh? beautiful cars.

The challenge it seems, is finding suitable photos and references for the older sports compacts, especially in usable resolutions.

I really like the old car idea. Have you ever thought of doing something less than perfect? Something a bit rusty or bent around the edges, giving it a lot of character... just a thought.

Anyway, this totally rocks. I really like your hood-up designs. They're pretty much been my wallpapers for the past two weeks.
