    As promised. The venue contract has been completed and the dates finalized! dates: June 13-14 at https://g.co/kgs/gBsGmi NEW this year will be camping on the grounds both Friday the 12th AND Saturday the 13th cost is $8.00 for 1 day or $15.00 for both days entrance fee. $10 tent camping $25 rv spot (20 amp power and water). Cost to enter a vehicle into the show: FREE Cost for a swapmeet spot: FREE Vender spots: FREE. What you get for your $8/15, 1 full day or 2 full days of access to the show and also if you’d like to walk around the venue there are also 14 various museums on the grounds that you’ll have access to. These Musuems typically ask for a small donation and that’s voluntary. dogs welcome, family’s encouraged. There are showers at our disposal as well. I negotiated the same price table as last year and again 100% of that goes to the venue to support the facility and keep it open for the public to enjoy for years to come while still staying affordable to anyone and everyone who may want to participate. the event will be the same as last year for the most part, however...after talking with many people about what they would like to see this year would be, Sundays judging and awards ceremony more formal got suggested so we’ll be doing that with several more classes being added. An actual raffle was brought up and that may happen this year if enough people donate items to raffle. Contact me if you do please and also shirts and stickers. This is something I am definitely going to make happen. It will be predominantly done on a preorder basis starting in late April but there will be a limited number available at the show also. as much as I tried to turn down $ to support this I did get a couple non refundable donations toward this upcoming years event so thank you for that! If interested please save the dates

    or maybe it's a 210, badge says 1000. The short story. I am browsing FB marketplace for datsuns (like I need any more lol) and I see this old Datto for sale. After looking at the ad a few times I realized I knew the tow rig and the house it was parked at. I text Icehouse and said I recognized his junk in the ad, he said, "It's yours". I'm like, fuck lemme find parking. Hobo says I can stash it out back at his place. I tell Icehouse it's on. Pics. As you can see it is a bit of a clean slate. It has some interesting rust, the rockers are ate up, but the floors are pristine. There is about 7 layers of paint. I don't really have a plan as of yet, but an idea is forming. I get some more pics and maybe some video when I head up to do a better assessment and put some tires on that hold air.

    I loved Powerland so much I forgot about Canby. Don't get me wrong I loved Canby so many good memories there so let's make more at Powerland. We could have people come from across the country or even from another country for just the show like we had at Canby. Jay you did awesome holding this down I just can't express the gratitude I have. If someone does do shirts and sweaters maybe some of money can be donated to the park as well I don't know just an idea.

    been a cloud over "canby" for a couple years wondering if the last one was going to be the last one... There is a genuine excitement in the air for next years show again, and it feels good . Real good .

    Well one dude put on a 2 day show.. great turn out and everyone had a great time. Already has the next event locked in and it's the ONE day after the show ended.. so. Not to say it's easy. Just saying Jbird is killin' it!!

    Suggestion, post some rules about being respectful of the venue while on site, specifically at night. Lots of stuff around and would hate to see some knuckleheads do something that would make us not welcome going forward. This year everyone was very respectful of the venue. Especially as the event grows. Or have a few volunteers help keep an eye on things. I know the on site staff were roaming the grounds to keep watch, but it's a big area. I guess we did have to sign a few documents when we entered the grounds.. so I dunno maybe that's good enough. I just know Canby got a pretty fucking nuts at times. I'm already planning on going both nights in 2020. Raffles are a great idea. Shirts would be super cool too. Feel free to reach out for volunteers to help you out with things. Trophies, shirts.. whatever.

    I really couldn’t say. I started off with an active relationship with the venue before I even brought the idea to them to consider. What’s important is that we still have a multi day event in the Pacific Northwest that is exclusively OURS.

    the date I reserved was chosen for a couple reasons, the first reason being 13 years the date has worked for Canby and oddly enough when god was dropping stones on us up there my wife told me it was sunny in Brooks. Second reason and the bigger reason was this venue only had this weekend available in June which at the time seem simply kismet. If there is any misunderstanding about the intent of this gathering let me clear it up by expressing my intentions. Last year I read and heard the grumblings of the venue charging more and offering less space and the struggles to get volunteers and at the time I spoke with the previous gentleman doing Canby via email and mentioned this venue as an option and for whatever reason it didn’t go anywhere. Flash forward 6 months and I hear what everyone else heard..it’s over goodbye no more Canby. Well guys and gals.. I’m not trying to make a NEW show here, I’m simply offering my best attempt at keeping the SAME show going without killing myself with debilitating hinderances that I can only assume killed the show at the old venue. Here’s where things have changed from years prior, I’m one guy not a club, I’m taking on ALL responsibility for every aspect of this event aside from the help I’ll be getting from the venue itself, I’m ok with this, it’s not my first car show. If people want to come out and have a great time they’ll put a few bucks in their pocket and come out. I hope that a little potential weather doesn’t keep anyone from coming but if that happens then it happens. As far as conflicting with other events to me that’s like saying I’ve got too many tools or too many toys or too many Datsun’s haha in my mind there is NEVER enough.

    Hi I joined the forum a couple of months ago and you guys have very kindly already imparted so much advice and guidance already which I very much appreciate. My 1971 Datsun 1600 SSS Coupe is almost here in the UK all the way from the Datsun Heritage centre in South Africa. She is due into the UK on 6th January so should be with me shortly afterwards. Once I have her I will post some photos of her arrival and progress. I have posted this to announce her impending arrival but also to test I can now host photos on here. Have a great Christmas everyone.

    This was a great event! The venue is top notch. Thanks for putting it on Jay!! Here is basically every picture I took.. as always should have taken more.

    Ray, I got a little creative with the bondo and lead, but I finally got your Coupe painted. Bring your checkbook and come pick it up. I took a few liberties with your requests, but I think the new aerodynamics will vastly improve the handling.

    I thought back and fourth between running a modern engine ( SR, Beams ), and I kind of still want to, but I ended up using the L20 and open chamber u67. A local shop in Calgary did the machine work on the engine. We cleaned everything up, resurfaced the head and block, bored the block to 86mm.. ran 86mm flat top ZX pistons, resized the rods for ARP fastners. Rotating assembly was balanced, new valve grind, installed ISKY springs and retainers... I will be running a Steve Bonk .535 cam I haven't reassembled yet, I am just waiting to finish up paint, so I can have a nice clean work space moving forward. I've recently picked up a set of Weber DCOE45s from a person on FB marketplace.. Came with a new Cannon manifold. I also have a older swan neck Cannon manifold, unsure what I will need to run to clear my brake setup.. read on.. Valve cover, done by Mike Kohloff, wrinkle black. Oil cap from Number 7 which I got from Lonely Driver. My friend Jim Karst recently visited Ermish Racing and picked up a Nissan Comp style header for me, I don't know how well it will fit, but I am not running torsions, and I can just modify it at home. I am running a 280ZX transmission, with a Fidanza flywheel, Exedy clutch, etc etc.. no pictures doe.. For my suspension, I will be doing a 3 or 4 link in the rear, but not this year... So I won't talk about that.. But for the front, I will be running the Mike Klotz suspension members, with Beebani upper shock mounts and Qa1 coil overs.. No progress on that.. Will address soon. Brakes... Z32 26mm calipers, Beebani rotors with adapters.. Izusu rear disc conversion.. Also Beebani.. Yet to come.. Mike Kohloff did the powder coating on the calipers.. Came out awesome.. I rebuilt them. Interior, nothing fancy... Undecided whether to use my OEM bench seat, or run my 914 seats. I raptor lined the floor and firewall, looks sweet. I think that's it for now.. I will update as I move forward.

    i am pleased to announce that after a hiatus, numerous deployments, and months spent at sea, and after the truck not running for years, that I finally got her fired up the other day, and that my build is back on. my immediate plans are to get it back to a reliable and street legal status, which includes but is not limited to: -changing out all the fuel hoses for new -renewing the registration -bleeding the brakes (if necessary) after that, I should be able to drive it around town (and beyond!) I have no super big plans at the moment, just need to get to driving her again. but I do plan on taking it all over the state and pnw to go to all the meets and meet Datsun buddies.

    Here are the last of my pics. Stopped for lunch at Boomers BBQ just before the border to WA. Never been before or even heard of it, but highly recommend now if you are into bbq. Plus there's a photo op right in front. :) Still working on the video, should be about 15 mins of footage. :)

    I met Dave at the first Canby I went to I think, in '09, maybe it was '11. Can't remember exactly. I wrote something about him I posted on facebook this morning while processing the news, since have posted it on NWDatsuns as well. I can't think of anyone who left more of an impact on me while knowing him so briefly. Pumpkin was the kind of guy who was always accepting. I hadn't talked to him in probably 2 years or so, but I know if I had called him up randomly, we'd bullshit and if we were close we'd swing by and see each other and kick it. I remember when he drove the grey Maxima wagon by my place after he had gotten it. Just random, happened to be in Spokane for something or other. I wasn't his close friend, but he made you feel like you had known each other for ages. So many good times at Canby, always wondering what the next nutty thing he would drag out, like the fishing line attached to the wheel hub on the birdshit goon, lol. And I know if he saw me in tears on the couch, he'd stop by with clown shoes on or something and make my ass laugh.For someone I rarely see, I'm really going to miss him. Also, Johnny is making memorial stickers for $10 proceeds less cost of manufacturing go to Dave's family.

    Parts! I’d like to say thanks again to all the venders who came out! Vender spots will remain at no additional charge in 2020. Bring lots of parts! I don’t know of ANY Datsun owner who isn’t looking for SOMETHING! You guys made my year coming out and enjoying the weekend with me! @mrbigtankeryou thought that KW was sweet then you are in for a treat..there are THREE massive buildings FULL of bygone commercial. @WAGON JON and @hang_510 a very special thank you to you guys for hauling me down to Sacramento so I could spend some time with my dad while he going through his treatments. And putting up with me going on and on and on about the show through the entire 10 hour drive 😁😂😁
