Indy drive Alex Lloyd is given the opportunity to take the Brock Racing Enterprise Datsun 510 out for a spin. He goes into the historical significance of the car and it’s victories in its class of Trans-Am racing. He then goes onto highlight the car’s quirks and how they relate to the romanticism of vintage race cars.
If you like working on cars at all, you will like this video. It’s the latest installment in a series called Depth of Speed. The videos are mini-documentaries about people who are into cars. I enjoy them because they do a good job articulating what it is we love about wrenching and driving so much. It’s always difficult to justify what we do to people who aren’t into cars and simply don’t understand where we get our passion. This particular story is about a man named Allan who loves Datsuns. He says that going into his workshop to make parts is like his church. It’s his place of zen.
