  1. Spotted my old 200sx at the Datslocos show looking super nice.
  2. Bummer i wasn't able to make it i was 50/50 if I was going to anyway. So happens after a week of having my turbo maxima back from getting wiring harness fixed and dialed in my transmission blew up a week before. Anyone know of a Borg Warner T5 with the driveshaft for sale please message me need it as the one in the maxi is a 71B NA trans.
  3. Hope to see you and your maxima at the Datslocos car show in Manteca this month on the 22nd I'll be picking up my turbo maxima from my buddies shop.
  4. I been craving one for a long time never had the funds to buy one even less today. Its a killer little pocket rocket.
  5. Thanks man i appreciate it, unfortunately i can't take all the credit. I bought that car in early 2014 sold it after about a little over a year owning it completely stock. Then about another year later i bought it back and it had been slammed on S13 coilovers and S13 front suspension. All i really did was put my 14x7 off my 810 wagon on it and bam i fell in love with the look. I put a new 2.25" exhaust with a Flowmaster 40 and those fugly headlights for the moment at the time. Never got to do more to it as i sold it January last year to a friend who ended up cutting the engine bay for a F20C swap 🤦‍♂️. He got kinda disappointed the L24E and how he couldn't do much with it. I think his plan was to make it a drift car sadly.
  6. A friend in sacramento named Ray who has a shop out there called fitted garage had a boosted 84 diesel he said it was as fast as a 240z so not bad for diesel maxima.
  7. Nice man makes miss my 84 miss it, andhow slammed it was and just all around fun.
  8. Makes me miss my old 280zx Turbo still parked in the same spot to the guy i sold it to in 2013. Been wanting to buy it back too 😞
  9. Ah cool, there used to be a FJ20 powered burnt orange 510 in ashland years ago.
  10. I'll try to make it out there, with so many changes in life I'll see if I'm able to.
  11. Does he own a skyline? Seen one of my friends take pics of a drive with a skyline and 510 in the driveway. I'm in Medford.
  12. I slapped 2 of the Appliance DeMags in the front to see what they would look like. Like it so far just needs way more low.
  13. I was told by one of the guys from the hillsboro area that they trying to make a 2 day show the same days Canby was but without the camping to weed out "those type of people" don't think that show will happen. One of the guys is brian minor who wants to have it at his shop along with the Z car club.
  14. So does that mean I can send my dattos to you? 😁
  15. Forgot to post these. I'll post more.
  16. 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 it up for me a month ago figured out how to wiggle every gear. I'm almost certain the clutch was on it's last leg, clutch pedal is strong but won't go into any gear now that it is home. I did buy some lubricant spray to spray onto the shifter mechanism it helped a little go into 2nd and 4th as i got a scare just 100 miles away from home when I was refueling. Never overheated the clutch fan works flawlessly and it even has electric vans lol. I'm pretty determined to swap out the Z24i got a KA at this point, but i do want to get this running decently before i do the swap or have help getting it done.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. This was for sale a couple years ago would definitely buy just because of the ZX drivetrain and drive the heck out of it.
  20. 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.
