    Loren O's '72 521 -Found this out in the woods.

    Hi Loren Saw this on facebook too... I still have a scar on my face from when I went into power pole back in 1981 with my first Datsun truck a 1972...bounced off the steering column and ripped the seat belt out of the floor pan too....these trucks are something you don't wanna wreck...they don't fair well at all...thank god you walked away from it...the Jeep looks pretty whipped up to...

    How much do drive your vintage Datsun???

    That is awesome....when I had mine back in the 1980's I dont think I drove it that much...I never felt like it was capable of any really long trips...it was my go to college and get my family going little truck... MikeC

    Hey Greenacres... Love the looks of your truck....a really clean specimen for sure...congrats MikeC
  12. I bought my first Datsun in the fall of 1979 when I traded a 1971 VW bug and $600.00 for it....I drove it until June 1981 when I drove it into a power pole...I would purchase a 1971 Datsun from a junk yard for $200.00 and replace all the parts I could from truck to truck...drove the $200.00 truck thru college and even drove my son home from the hospital in it in 1983. I would go thru 2 more Datsuns until getting a 1983 Ford diesel Ranger in 1989 or 1990. This sketch is what I remember it as....it had L60-15's on the rear and skinnys on the front...crazy times right there...(Admin if this is in the wrong place please move it)

    Removing the body and bed, '67 520

    I got this set-up last fall when I was pulling a cab off of a 1948 Chevy truck I had picked up...something like what Wayno has or something like this would be an awesome asset to have if you want to pull a cab off of a chassis...I pulled a 54 GMC cab once and set it on S10 chassis with a cheapo cherry picker from Harbor Freight (I took the doors off and put the arm inside the cab to make it work)...good luck with your project and post more pics as you go along...

    What are you listening to???

    I think I must be weird or something but when I work in my shop I work in silence... I think it must be all the goings on inside my head to have the tunes going just to cause more chaos...
  15. I don't know if he is a member on here or not but boy do I like the fact that he is still driving a 34 + year old Datsun truck. https://babytoboomer.com/2016/10/15/spray-nine/ Admins....If this is not allowed on here please delete... Thanks in advance. MikeC
