My 78 200SX

#1

Post by Datsun » Wed Nov 06, 2013 8:39 pm

Here she is when I trailered her home. Found on craigslist almost 4 years after I first saw her for sale down in Tucson. When I saw the ad, I was in lemaze class with my wife, threw her pregnant ass in the truck when it was over and drove down that same day and picked it up. Still in pretty good condition, but the PO had bought it for their 18 year old kid in HS, and he kinda tore into it, as evidenced by the left rear. Fortunately the motor gave out before he was able to completely ruin it.

S10... the S14's great grand father. First 5 speed Datsun in 7 years.
My Datsuns, like good friends, have never let me down. At least in any way that was not understandable and thus fixable.

She's still pretty though! I like her!
If it doesn't have torque, you don't want it.
