    My Roadster

    I wanted to post this shot since it's the most recent with the JNC sticker on the glass. One of my two Datsuns, I've had this one for almost 2 years now. 1968 1600, now with Mikuni 40s, header/exhaust, H4s, KYB shocks, and Works Equip 03's thanks to a fellow JNC member.

    I redid the interior last year and with a TON of help from RAD2LTR, redid the motor/engine bay this year. Pictured next to my DD.

    SWEET! Looks good. I'm digging the wheels. I gotta get my Hayashis finished.

    Highly recommended. Not sure what they go for in your area, but for the price you can pick up a decent one around here, it's excellent bang for the buck. The only things I've really done to it were by my choice, not because it broke down. So far parts have been really easy to find and has been an all around great experience for my first JNC.

    No complaints about the Z either, I've been lucky to have two great cars.

    Re: My Roadster

    I need to post some more. I uploaded them to Photobucket without realizing the 800x600 rule, so now none of them are the right size.

    RAD2LTR and I are quite close, he is mostly to blame for both my Datsuns.

    Roadster - I already kinda wanted one, but didn't know much about them. Having a good couple months at work. I'm at a car wash in Napa and this GLORIOUS sounding car comes screaming by and takes on on-ramp for 29. I look up and it's a Roadster, which I later discover through the 311s.org forum is him.

    240z - He talks me into coming down to co-drive/autoX his 69 GTV (RIP) in Marina. I had a blast and the entire car ride home was spent discussing AutoX cars for me. Settled on a 240z, he knew a guy selling a great one and a few months later, it's in my garage as well.

    you would have to pay atleast $10,000 for a rough road worthy example here in australia.
    I was choosing between one of these and a 240z when i bought my 240z.
