Sedan
This is one of three Datsun 510s built by Bob Sharp Racing, and is the car that won the 1972 SCCA National Championship with Bob Sharp driving. The other two 510s were driven by Paul Newman and Jim Fitzgerald. While qualifying at the SCCA 'runoffs' at Road Atlanta in 1973, Paul Newman crashed his 510 heavily, destroying it. The remains were put on a rollback truck and hauled to Sharp's race shop in Connecticut, where the crew was readying Sharp's retired 1972 championship car to receive the salvageable parts from the crashed car. After several hours, the 510 headed back to Atlanta for Newman to race. Only two of the Bob Sharp 510s remain in existence. Newman purchased this car from Sharp, forming PLN Racing, and changed the livery from silver to black, matching his ex-Group 44 Triumph TR-6.
