    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

    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 .

    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.

    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. :)

    Before: After! Still some streaks and stipes in the paint, but it's shiny and I'm pretty happy with it!

    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.

    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 😁😂😁

    Many thanks jbirds510, you did a fantastic job putting this together----solo. I was there today, Sunday. (I missed Saturday) There were 60-70 cars, trucks, wagons, one-off's -----all well represented. Several parts vendors, numerous individuals selling parts. There was sun, shade, level lawn, plenty of room, restrooms and nice guy at the gate. For those in doubt, easily as good as Camby. Well done.

    Bumping this. I recently moved, now have a bigger garage. Still organizing it though. It will be a bit until I can do some meaningful work in there due to the amount of clutter from the move. The back yard has quite a bit or space so I'm trying to save my pennies to build a shop back there. Until then, I've got to get the garage organized and functional because I've got a ton of Datsun work to do.

    Here she is all taped up. Aaaaand we have primer! After adjusting the Harbor Fart HVLP spray gun on a piece of masking paper, I gave it a shot on the bumpers. It immediately did this: Not cool. I had mixed something like 2:1 primer to lacquer thinner. So that's a no-go. Then I tried 1:1. Much better. Best shots I could get of the texture. I've never shot paint before, so I can't tell if it's actually good, but it feels good. Very consistent like a good matte. It looks much bumpier than it feels. Could be the gun was clogging or my pressures/settings weren't right. But it should sand nicely I think. This is the only major noticeable non-flatness. I just might have to tackle this one. This was the "bad" side. This fender was on the PO's car when he wrecked his other 210, so he swapped fenders with his parts car, now known as my race car. There are some many patches and hammerings in this one shot that no one will ever know about. Here's the setup if anyone is curious. I am shooting Rustoleum "surfacer" automotive primer, mixed with lacquer thinner, through the HF HVLP gun with a 1.8mm tip. That filter/staining stand from HF is a must! $20 for a 2-pack of quarts at Home Depot and I used just a little of the 2nd quart. I will probably need a 3rd quart. I had to special order this stuff online after reading tons of reviews and got to experience those nifty online order pickup lockers for the first time. This morning, once I realized I was ready to shoot, I went back to HD and had them run each can through their shaker machine. Lots of reviews online talk about the high solids content and how difficult it is to mix. I won't pretend to know what all that means, but I didn't notice many chunks and I'm happy with how it worked out. On my other bench I have a bucket with "used" thinner for cleaning the drill-powered mixer between coats. I spin the mixer in the thinner before and after mixing, then pour the mixed paint through the strainer into the gun's container.

    Another weekend, another road-trip, another 521 added to the collection! I was keeping an eye on offerup and noticed someone list a datsun drift truck and arranged to meet up with him. Noah ended up being an awesome guy and after a little chatting he let Bro and I snag this awesome little rig. With help with Noah, and his family we rolled the truck up onto the car dolly - even managed to get my little Niece helping load everything up Full bed loaded up! Once we got back to my place we got the truck unloaded I took the chance to look at what the panels looked like on the truck Got the doors mounted tonight. I know you guys want to see the floors: In the bucket of parts the rest of the trans tunnel parts are there if I want to go "back to stock". Noah was awesome and bagged all the bolts and labeled them. Pulling out some of the spare parts to swap with the green 521. Dash has the radio delete plate which is awesome, and the headlight trim is fantastic. Datsun 620 steering wheel + column and a fantastic front bumper and the MINT bench seat.

    Bought this 1970 Datsun 521 out of SoCal after selling my 280Z. U may have seen it for sell. Plan on going through all systems, not doing a restoration but towards the ratsun look. Have been fixing the usual electrical issues; lights, switches, horn. First project will be the stance. More to come.

    So finally found a cherry one from my buddy Joel. Or it found me. This 1800 SSS is a time capsule, not perfect but this car will be no challenge to restore at all.Its been a long time searching for the right one at the right price and this met both without a shadow of a doubt. I am so happy to finally join the Coupe club And again want to thank Joel for selling it to me. This one will stay all stock, Im not spending any money on this one.lol First thing is get the car, next is clean up and get running. I would love to drive around for a bit as I get all parts needed to restore. And then of course pull apart to just a roller and get it bodywork and painted. Either leaving the 1800 factory engine or swap an FJ20 with mikuni's, considering I have 2 of them.Will see. Other then that here it the first batch of pictures to show its time capsule and pristine condition.

    So the stock Z valve covers have these three big threaded bosses cast into the top of them that really ugly it up. Step #1 was to grind those off, file it smooth, and hit it with some wrinkly black... Then I scraped the paint off the letters and stripe and hit it with some satin purple. Then sanded the stripe and letters smooth... Altogether that was surprisingly a lot of work, but it came out pretty cool I think... Then we thought, might as well make the carb hat match right? Finalized the location for the fuel pressure regulator and gauge... And here is where we are now... Up next is routing the hoses for the remote oil filter and oil cooler, then the catch can hoses. Then it's on to sorting out the wiring routing and fuse box location...
