    '73 1200 Coupe Project, aka Timmy

    After reading through this(like 3 times) it dawned on me that I may have an oval port manifold for side drafts.....maybe. It is not in my inventory list but it seems I had one at one time. I will do some digging but it may have to wait until this coming weekend. Hell, it's even possible there is an oval port down draft out there somewhere.

    Nissan a14 motor reaching 100kw

    Hey watch it pal, my little A12 motor buzzed along at 65-70MPH last weekend on an almost 800 mile round trip to a Datsun show. Sometimes slow is the way to go. (above to be read in sarcasm font)

    New owner of 520

    Somebody somewhere on here was talking about the same issue with the steering wheel being too close. Take a look at the 520/521 build threads, maybe you will find something there. Only in Canada will you see a sign that says " Ball and Hockey Playing Prohibited"

    Hamiltonstövare, the 122 hot rod

    1. It is not in your shop. 2. I am not driving it. 3. You are not driving it. 4. Bonus: It is not a Datsun. Hey, I tried...……...

    Seen while walking around town after the JDM Classic.
  6. Some goodies forum members hooked me up with. Buttons from 73dat Some plates from Chopper Jim. Also bought an oil cap from Datrod but I haven't unpacked it yet. This plate was in the goodie bag for the show.
  7. Had a grand ole time again this year. Was way too busy talking Hot Wheels(also general BSing) with people to take pics. Yes, I said it, I took zero show pics. I did, however, get some shots around town. AZ hitman's wagon. Karen's Roadster Chuck's Z Ranman's Dime AZ hitman's Bluebird So the weather forecast going into this was a bit sketchy and I kept going back and forth on whether I would take the Grey coupe. Friday morning I decided what the hell let's take it. The drive out Friday was awesome. A little wind and a lot of sun. Saturday was cloudy with the promise of rain but that didn't start until the show was almost over when they we doing the awards and raffles. Later in the afternoon and into the evening it dumped a few times and through the night I kept waking up to the sound of thunder. This is what I found at about 5:30 Sunday morning. It wasn't quite cold enough for the roads to freeze but we still decided to wait until the sun came up. Might as well go to breakfast. Look who else was there. Got to visit some more with Ranman and Missus Ranman and a gal that has a Roadster whose name is Kelly also (Kelley, Kellie, I'm not sure how to spell that for a girl). Was a great little extra visit that we weren't expecting. We finally got on the road to head home about 8:45. It was very cloudy and the snow had turned to rain. Outside of Flagstaff it dropped off. At one rest stop a guy rolls up in his car and says "Hey man, we just saw a car just like that (the grey coupe) on a trailer on our way here, but it looked brand new" I said "really, did it look like that one" and pointed to Missus Kelmo's coupe sitting about 40 yards in front of him. Outside of Holbrook the rain started again. Close to Grants NM it turned into snow...big fat snow flakes. At this point I started to think about where we could leave the grey coupe and come back Monday. Once we were outside Grants the snow and rain eventually stopped. With the four stops we made it took us about 7 1/2 hours to make it home (about 395 miles). It was at that point I decided not to ever drive a 1200 across country again unless it can go 85 MPH and has some decent tunes and decent seats. Missus Kelmo did real good towing her car even when the semi ahead of us decided it would be a good idea to pull off the road at a point where there was a guard rail on his right and she had to squeeze between that semi and one on her left...without a lot of room to do it in. It was great to see everybody and visit. Greg and Becky did a good job with the show and we are planning already for next year.
  8. I was gonna call you a bastard for not showing up.....you bastard.
  9. Ha ha, see you Saturday, make sure you remind me.....and then I still won't remember. Loaded and ready to roll.

    Where can I find new 1200 parts?

    Like Morrisun mentioned, I have used new Datsun parts for a number of parts on my 1200 and have not been disappointed. I have also used BProjects out of Japan. The prices can be a bit high but again, to this point I have not been disappointed. My 2 cents worth.
  13. Stop by our booth (Hot Wheels & T-shirts) next to the main tent and say hi. Not sure if we have met before or not. I promise not to badger you to buy anything...….can't say the same for Missus Kelmo though.
  14. Bumpty bump. One week from today sports fans.
