Hello, greetings from Finland!

Thought i'd make a topic of my car, a 1980 Datsun B310. This is my first car and my daily driver. Over the last year I have modified it a bit so that it doesn't look like a grandpas car anymore :lol:

Specs:

-A14 engine (stock for now)
-4-speed manual
-Homemade suspension: shortened struts with opel ascona c shocks, coilover sleeves, stiff springs and nissan s13 camper plates in the front, cut mercedes w202 springs and adjustable koni shocks in the rear
-7x13 et-2 SSR Starsharks in the front, 8x13 et-20 Bridgestone Potenza stage fours in the rear, 165/55-13 nankang tires all around
-Recaro front seats, drivers side is from a Ford Sierra Cosworth, the other is a universal model, they are a bit different from eachother but not much
-Nuova Raid wooden steering wheel with HKB boss kit and chinese quick release hub


Next step for the car is an engine swap, i already have a Toyota 4age engine waiting and twin Dellorto dhla 40:s are on their way from Greece. I'm a total noob at engine tinkering so it will take some time, hopefully the engine will be in the car sometime next year.

When I bought it:

My topic on NoPokemonShit, a Finnish stance/clean car related forum, there are some more pictures and a longer story, unfortunately in finnish.

Thanks for looking!

Hard to believe these are the same car. The stock car looks so stubby while yours looks proportioned just right as though you actually stretched the trunk or something...
