It is also the only Datsun I have with stock wheels ... coincidence?
When I get home today my goon will be less than 100 miles from the odometer turning over. I'm trying to think of a location I want to take it for cool photos of this grand event. I haven't done anything to it since I bought it, except some maintenance (wash and wax, oil change, valve adjustment, etc.) but I won't keep it stock forever. I thought it would be cool to leave it "as is" for the first 100K. I expect to document the event very soon - before it reaches 45 years old.
They forecast rain for the next few days, and I won't take it out in the rain. Not because it's a "pristine classic" or anything like that. It's because the wipers take about 20 seconds to go through a cycle. Technically the wipers work, but I would only use them if I was caught by surprise. Who knows, maybe the first upgrade for this wagon will be a Mazda 626 wiper motor swap?
