  1. Big milestone today, the Z is now bearing its own weight at long last! Rolled it out into the sun for the first time in a very very long time: And threw some panels on to get a better idea of looks: And a before/after. Panels are just thrown on here obviously, I do need to modify the hood slightly though as the strut bolts are fouling on the hood's reinforcement rib thingy. Won't be too much work to modify a little bit of the hood to clear. Next up is engine work I suppose, then front end panel fitting and engine bay paint so the driveline can go in the car.

  2. Ok so I live in rural Maine half the year. The good is quiet no crime friendly folks small microbrewery ect. The bad, Amazon prime takes over a week and getting instant gratification for certain items is a no go. On the other hand when you have an issue there is a network of sole proprietors that work out of there homes or converted barns. Today I needed an outboard starter fixed so I went up the road to a dirt road where the local starter/alternater rebuild lived. Shop wide open but nobody around so I walked around his property until I found him tending his garden. No problem! This isn't a drop it off and pick it up later, no time like the present to dig in and fix it. Watching a man who had done the same repairs for 53 years is fascinating to me. He just dug in, threw the stater on the lathe to polish it. New brushes from what he had on stock, chatted, I helped hold a few brushes on reassembly and I was back in buisness for the princely sum of $45 for a repaired marine starter. Even watching his hands while doing this at probably close to 80 I figured a thumb war with this man would only result in a broken thumb on my end. His diagnostic machine for alternators is from around 1937 he picked up as surplus from the air force base as it was used to diagnose generators from B 52s.

  4. Untitled by raymond medeiros, on Flickr Only picture I took worth while. There was nuditie after this picas taken, so this is all you get. Jbird, Thank you for putting on the show, the place is very cool other then Datsuns, there is so much to see there. Very good family place and in my humble opinion a way better venue then the Canby location. It was good seeing all you guys and I will try to make it up there next year with a Datsun. [In Toe] lol

  5. FRONT SUSPENSION Let me preface this by saying my goal was to build the cheapest adjustable upper control arm I could. With that, I know there are different/better ways, but I have a total of $140 in the upper control arms, that’s it. I made my own plates to weld in the uppers to match the ball joints of the 720. Part #s from Speedway Motors upper A arm 91034410 $25 x2 mounting brackets 91645470 $15 x2 Bushed rod end 9008001-STR $13 x4 or you can use a heim joint 5/8-18 RH 1750506 Jam nut 5/8-18 RH. 1750246 $1 x4 1/2-20 2.25 bolts Optional poly bushings- 9.19105G. $14 x4 For the lower control arm I am using a 720 control arm with 18mm 2.5 x 120 bolts along with washers for spacers since the 620 bushings are good. The spindles, hubs, and brakes are all from an 83 720. The angle of the upper ball joint to upper control arm turned out beautiful, pretty much neutral. Lower brackets with the plates I made Coilovers being used

  6. That psychological shit don't work on me dude, when I was having my heart attack I was not upset at possibly dying, I actually told them twice(calmly the first time) as I had to repeat myself since I got no reaction from them the first time when I said "if my heart quits beating for 5 minutes DNR", I got no response, so I said again quite loudly, "IF MY HEART QUITS BEATING FOR 5 MINUTES DNR, DO NOT RESUSCITATE", I got a hesitant "ok" the second time, later I was told basically that is against their religion in hospitals, but I was not coming out of that hospital with brain damage. I am not afraid of dying, I am afraid of falling off a roof and being crippled, but I am not going to go downtown Portland and get myself killed either, I am not suicidal, I don't want to fly a Trump flag on my vehicles because I am afraid that the Democrat dominated area I live in will retaliate against me by pulling my license to do business or have people start destroying my property(Datsuns in the driveway), my neighbor is a Democrat fanatic, all my neighbors are Democrats and I do not have a party, I vote for who I think will do the job and lately I have been voting with term limits in mind, he has shot his pellet gun from across the street into my house aiming at my water wheel that turns 24/7 in the pond in my front yard, I have a bunch of pellet holes in my ceder siding behind the water wheel you see in the attached photo of the way it was back then, the second photo is of the way it is now, he tried burning his house down last October and we don't get along anymore, it is an abandoned house now, the driveway is still full of the insulation from his attic from when the firemen put the fire out, he just put a tarp over it and called it good, it is likely an asbestos insulation based material, nothing has changed over there since the fire except for people going onto the property and stealing stuff and he has decided it is my fault people are stealing from him, I sorta hope he does nothing and sells the property to someone else. The last photo is of my garden taken a couple days ago from the highest place on my roof, I am proud of my garden, it has automatic watering, and it is set up in such a way to keep weeds from growing, the dirt between the rows does not get wet/watered.

  11. Well If you can make it that would be great, I really think youd enjoy the commercial truck museum there also. My dad drove for 50+ years commercially and one year for his birthday I brought him up from Sacramento to see it! he came back every year until his passing last year. The place is really something! I feel it would be a pretty cool added bonus for you. FWIW.

  12. Well guys after selling my 77 200sx I told myself I wouldn't buy another vehicle. Just had to be nosey and be scrolling the facebook marketplace and saw this 1987 Nissan Van XE. Not only is it a rare base model but it's a fricken 5spd, runs and drives. It was located in Tracy, California, messaged the owner got a response pretty quickly. He was out of the country, but would get back to me when he was back. Fast forward almost 2 weeks he messaged me and gave me his number I called, and we talked for a good hour. He was the second owner had owned it for almost 30 years, and was the only one who drove it. Not knowing how I would purchase it I hit up homie carlos konig209 here who is in Modesto and went to check it out for me on video chat. Talked to owner again and made a deal even though he was hesitant to sell it since his wife was the one who posted it for sale lol. He was retiring and leaving the country for good and was gonna drive it down with him. Thanks to carlos konig209 for doing a big favor and picking it up for me it's like a Xmas gift for myself since I always wanted one and just could pass up the chance to own one. Another big reason is well I love old Datsuns and old Nissans and being single dad now thought well why not cruise my kids around too while I get the datsuns back on the road. Guess you can say I'm filling in the empty spot I have in life at least the datsuns have always remained around as woman come and go, oh well. Anyway I will post more pictures when I go pick it up next week. Now I just need to find some Hayashi Techno TVR's un 5 lug for the van since carlos put the one in the picture and made me 🤤.

  14. Who would watch this?? A host who is the richest woman in the US if not the world. Who has nothing in common with me or anyone else. A 'Royal' and his wife who also have nothing in common with me or anyone else other than another 'Royal'. Who grew up with position, privilege, power and money, never worked a day in his life and now hes whining about his family????? Get fucking bent! Surely anybody can see that the 'Royals' are just a family and all families have secrets and difficulties. Oprah..... you are as pathetic as they are. Why don't you move them in with you and your 'royal' family???????

  15. I didn't miss any of it. You did a lot more than post his address and were a dick. Personal attacks and impersonating another member are both banning or at least a suspension offense. Not one person complained when you left and life was easier and went on without you. I didn't want to deal with or think about it when you showed up and was prepared to wait and see, but if you think to repeat the past and be abrasive because it's your nature and can't help yourself just say so and I'll fix it. When a tooth ache becomes too much to ignore out it comes.

  18. Hillary still thinks she won 2016. She's a whiny cunt and should just go away. If trump was going to go after her he's had 4 years to do so.... not that there is a statute of limitations on the Clintons evilness. So fuck her and her me me me podcast. Fucking kill yourself.

  19. The unicorn has landed! So the shipper dropped off the truck last night around midnight. I might mention that the middle of the night is not the best time to do an inspection. Everything appeared ok so I took possession of the truck. I was lucky enough that this shipper has a closed trailer so there was very little chance of damage on it's 500 mile journey home. I got up bright and early with the same jubilation as a kid waking on Christmas morning. In the early light of day, with my first real good look at the truck and it was actually better than I imagined. She really is a time capsule. 81,000 well cared for miles, garage kept and everybit the gem that the owner described. As to plans, this will primarily be a drop it and drive it truck. I will find some ST wheels and go. If I put a radio in it, it will be hidden in the glove box or somewhere, leaving the original tape deck in place. Keeping this one simple and enjoying the ride will be the agenda for the day.

  20. I just wish the gay community would stop being the attention whore machine that they have become and just live normal lives and mind their own business. And the same goes for the super christian types who keep banging the anti gay drums. Just move the fuck on! Constantly shoving this shit into peoples faces gets pretty old, and from then on people will not care, or just be super annoyed by it. Stop trying to force special treatment upon yourselves by others who just don't want to fucking deal with you. And this goes for both groups! And their is one Unity Flag already that includes everyone, so stop inventing dumb shit!

  24. Got the new MGA head gasket in, valves adjusted, switched over to a Petronix electronic distributor and she's been driving like a dream. Anyone interested in polished stainless steel 320 hubcaps? Jake Makes is doing a run for $350 a set which includes shipping within the US. Here's a few weekend pics a friend took. Shoutout to Aaron from Arizona Classic Japanese Car Club.

  26. update on the score !!! just curious, how many of you TRUMP haters still support Biden ? Please tell us, WHY ? No, I'm not baiting you, just wonder what has Biden done that makes you think Bidens for American's. And the reason Biden hasn't got the nuke codes yet is the fake ballots are still in the news, just not on your MSM,CNN or Fux's.
