Keith, List,

  Now I'm gonna be late for work...again.  Dave can run the 510 in the
production class if you can find documentation that a 300zx engine came from
the factory in a '71 510.  I've had several model variations, but never saw
that one in any factory manuals.  Maybe Dave is keeping those original plans
to himself. I'd just be glad to have another 510 come out and play.  It's
like a flash-back to 1973.
