    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    So I am a bit older than most of you, I think (not as old as Mike, though), as I graduated high school in 1991. Now the 3 coolest cars in my high school parking lot were (in no particular order) the mid-80s Trans Am or IROC-Z Camaro, the AE86 Toyota Corolla GT-S (so much stickers!!), and the Mitsubishi Starion/Chrysler Conquest. I fell in love with all three of these and always wanted to own all three some day. It took me until 15 years after high school, but I did get an AE86. It was a load of fun and I do miss it still. I have often low key looked for a decent IROC-Z but that search has thus far proved fruitless. And we come to the last of the trio. Which I acquired today. 😁 Paint is pretty beat but it runs great. Engine was recently rebuilt, as was the turbo. It pulls surprisingly strong, especially on the freeway... Now just waiting on the UPS man to bring me about 20 boxes, then the real fun begins... 😁

    There was no torch pass it was dropped by dnw and Jay grabbed that thing by the balls and lit it on fire again This was a great turn out for a low key first time show and really the unknown Jay you did well talking with the people at Powerland and making this happen what great people and the people working in the museums were wonderful also the lady planeing and sanding old lumber for rebuilding thethe floors on the people movers was very nice She told me there is 62 acres inside the gates and 14 acers outside the gate for visitor parking Everyone was respectful camping area was plentiful as well as parking Vendor space and shade We had an awesome time and can't wait to come back to Powerland Thanks again Jay for stepping all over the plate to make this happen 👍

    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.

    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.

    Daves passing has upset me real bad to the point that it's really hard to even say anything. I wasn't that close to him but he made a special impression on me that only a unique person like him can do. He texted me last month and said he was trying to stay positive about things and I said we should hang out sometime. He said "promise" and I said yup. Well that never happened and I have felt terribly guilty for it. I met him about 7 years ago or so. He drove down and picked up a engine from Bill down in elma for my daughters 75 b210 which I still have. He threw it in the back of his goon drove it to my house and helped me install it. Dave was always willing to help someone in need. R.I.P Brother.

    My 17 yr old son works at an in n out and making $14.75 an hr. Really well run organization and they take great care of their employees. The managers are making upwards of $160K. Pay people well, treat them with respect and they take their job seriously. It shows in the product.
