Thread: Hello, everyone!

  1. #1

    Hello, everyone!

    Hello everyone! A few of you may have seen me around posting my newbish questions and thoughts around the forum. Thought it'd be appropriate to finally introduce myself.

    I'm a San Francisco, CA resident of 21 years and currently attend classes at a junior college several miles away. I wasn't introduced to Japanese nostalgic cars until my then favorite magazine Sport Compact Car was sent to the cutting board. I came across this site by accident really, and I'm glad I took the time to look into it, I love the community here! :mrgreen:

    I'm mostly interested in Datsuns/Nissans and Princes but I still like all Japanese marques. My Dad might be the cause of this as he had a yellow Datsun 240Z back then and continues to be a car nut but instead with Detroit muscle cars. Back in the day, my relatives also had a blue Toyota Celica GT and a Toyota Corona. Cutting the babble, my current garage consists of a beige/brown 1978 Datsun HL620 pickup and an orange 1971 Datsun PL510 sedan; although that one doesn't run at the moment. I hope to learn and maybe if I'm lucky, teach others more about these great old cars.

    Picture time!


    - Traveled 900 miles to buy this baby! I'll eventually get both of them into build threads.







    - Datsuns must run in the family. :lol:

    Unfortunately no, but how awesome would it be if he did?! The only things left from his 240Z (that he remembers) are memories and a spare shift knob which is now on my daily driver 620. However, if it's of any interest, we did own a 1982 "Harvest Beige" Subaru Brat 4WD GL. That is, until the engine started to have severe blow-by. We sold that to a Brat fan in the Washington/Idaho region who put in a new engine and is driving it around his ranch.
