Its Best of Show appearance certainly got some unwanted attention while we were out photographing it for you. Not to pull back the curtain too far, but we often run into snags on these types of photo shoots. Anything ranging from inquisitive onlookers, to the full court press is possible when out in the field. This time out was no exception. While I was hanging out the window of a rental car snapping some rolling shots of Kevin's yellow "dime", we were both pulled over by Portland PD's finest - on our very first pass no less. Convinced we were up to no good, she told us that we would have to leave town or be arrested for street racing. This was especially odd, since we were only going 30mph in a 35mph zone. The rental car versus the 510 at 30mph, let me tell you, what a race you missed. At least she was really, really hot. After giving us these two options, our request for house arrest at her place did not go over well.

But alas, we digress. Kevin Koford has good reason to be proud of what he's created. As with most project cars, it's never really finished. He has plans for future upgrades, and if he stays true to form they will be both tasteful and powerful. As they used to say in the adverts from the '70s: "Drive a Datsun, then decide."
