  1. Forgot to post these. I'll post more.
  2. As of last weekend on Sunday i was finally able to drive it back home from Modesto California to Medford Oregon. Sketchy road trip but I've had worse. Looks like the previous owner wasn't as honest and truthful about the Van. Overall it is pretty complete and everything works, has no radio/stereo, No Ice maker/Cooler, don't think this van ever had one. Has a hard time starting in the mornings you have sit on the van and manual warm it up until it will idle on its own. Found out when I drove in town in Modesto it only had 2nd, 4th and reverse working gears lol. Carlos my friend who picked
  3. About half my family owned Datsuns even before I came around so it was natural for me to own one. Always wanted one of my older cousins 4x4 620 which one of my uncles had sold to him. His mom owned a 79 A10 wagon dark brown drove it to the ground. My mom owned a 82 200sx fastback. My first Datsun was a 280zx which was my first car that i could actually drive. My real first car was a orange triumph TR-7 that was missing the cylinder head. Since then I had owned over 20+ datsuns and probably will own quite a bit more as time goes by.
  4. Well this weekend didn't go as planned, so next weekend hoping will workout for me to head down to pick up the van. Next weekend it is.
  5. This was for sale a couple years ago would definitely buy just because of the ZX drivetrain and drive the heck out of it.
  6. Nissan did a buyback in 1994 to all the people who brought theirs back not all of them were taken in there are some still out there.
  7. Haha more like Soccer Dad Van, if the woman don't like this dad bod they can't handle this dad rod.
  8. So bought some Appliance Diamags for the Van 14x7 5x114.3 just have to find the right roto lugs don't wanna run the lug nut with bushings read they are prone crack. A plus the wheels have brand new tires still has all the titties mmm titties...any will be picking up the van this weekend hoping all goes well on my trip back home.
  9. All were up for recall here in the states, as you can see a lot of people didn't want to give theirs up.
  10. 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 on
  11. You can run pretty wide what suspension and wheel size. Wheel offset has a lot to do with it as well.
  12. I've seen them for sale not cheap finding parts even overseas is a pain in the ass. I've got a early S10 Grille and even found a type 2 grille. Misc parts here there I've been able to find but never bumpers and the rest of the parts I would need to successfully put them on. Big difference in the front ends I can't even out the Silvia Grille on a 200sx because of those differences.
  13. They actually handle pretty good one for having the same front suspension as the 510. Mine kept up with s G37s coupe in the corner just having fun.
  14. Sold the 200sx owner lives in Oakland, Cali so now it's gonna be a cali Datsun. Guy has 2 other ones so it's in good hands, gonna miss it.
