  2. Not sure who else follows the Car & Driver crowd but this popped up on there website late last year... https://www.caranddriver.com/features/a25654581/1986-nissan-pickup-goes-home-tennessee/ if this is in the wrong place please admin feel free to move or delete. MikeC
  3. I had a 1980's Dodge pickup truck once and the windshield wiper motor stopped working...I was at a loss until my dad came over and figured out we were getting power but we somehow lost the ground on it. He made up a neat little ground wire...cleaned off both mounting surfaces too and we were off and running... So maybe make sure you have a good ground on it.... Nothing like electrical gremlins to drive you batty... MikeC
  4. I have been told the same thing...I have 2 guys at work that both married Asians...they both would agree with you in this one... MikeC
  5. This should be posted on every old car forum on the internet...the sad part is...most of these younger folk don't want to know anything except can they text and drive at the same time..and that and they always need to go around you so they can turn in front of you... MikeC
  6. Love your truck... Thanks for sharing on here. MikeC
  7. Hey Daniel Can't believe how well the old Datsun took all that weight. That is amazing. I think the ole truck likes getting loaded right up to the edge too. MikeC
  8. My grandfather was 15 years old and he tried....he got enlisted and he went thru basic training and then his dad came and pulled him out as he was not old enough to go to war...or so the story goes. I have a picture of him in his Army uniform and with big swollen lip and cheek from getting in a fight during basic training. Crazy war it was. MikeC
  9. I remember when I was really young, and the gang I hung out with was even younger (no drivers license) and they would ask for rides to someplace...I could take one in the cab and the rest had to ride like this...the police didn't even look twice back then... Fun times they were...gosh I miss the early 1980's... Thanks for posting... MikeC

    Panels available?

    I would have to call them and make sure what they exactly intended on their website....I am hoping it is just a typo....they are more of American vintage replacement panel company...they probably dont even know the correct models are for Datsuns... MikeC
  11. I am with Biggs Those Datsun dashboards seem to all age and end up looking just like that...I would love to be able to learn how you fixed....so please show us the trick to saving it. MikeC

  15. Oh my Gosh Datzenmike My dad would come in from the garage at 10:45 pm...make himself a cup of coffee, sit down and drink it while he watched the 11 pm news...take a shower at 11:30 and then off to sleep until 6 am the next day... I don't think he gave a crap either... I love your attitude...I gotta try it... thanks for sharing MikeC
