    Just happened to see this in the parking lot at work in Lynnwood

    My 1967 RL411 Station Wagon - Canby or Bust!

    He was down in Renton Highlands. He had a "garage sale" because AT&T was going to put up a couple cell towers on his property and they required the land around the towers be cleared out, and was selling a few Datsuns. He had a general idea of what he had, but mislabeled a couple. I took a little time off from work and made Brody go down because I figured he might have a gem or two. He ended up having one or two 521s, two '66 520 (we picked up one, and Skip picked up another, plus a partial of a 3rd I think), and goon_box picked up this 411. If I recall correctly, he might have actually paid $700 for it at the garage sale too. This was the thread that he had started for it on here when he got it. Part way down someone else posted a quote of a few more pics of what it looked like and it's "storage shed" that it lived in since sometime in the 80s I'm sure. It was a little while ago, but if I recall correctly, the guy bought it new, then his daughter or son drove it for a while, then it got parked out back on his property. He had a grip of Dattos, and let his grandkids destroy another 411 or 410 a few weeks before the garage sale because he had no idea the attention or money they would fetch. Before goon_box came to pickup the 411, the owner, Art, had dragged it out and was trying to get it running for him. I posted a video of it finally running while we were there figuring out how the hell to get our 520 home.

    I was wondering if this was the same one we saw at the place we picked up our 520 a whole back now. It is indeed. Looks like a nice little score. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

    Hahahaha. Initially I was like, "Oh, cool..... a dude with a ponytail digging my truck and waving at me" Then I realized it was you :lol: God, that traffic fucking SUCKS!!

    521 for my first project

    I happened to see your pics on Instagram and LOVE the shell on it. This is a clean little 521 that you managed to get your hands on. Can't wait to see where it goes as you keep working on it.

    Another 620 for Rick Rat

    Why should I lower my seat? I don't hit my head. Lowering that seat is the absolute lowest priority on all of our Datsun to-do lists ;)

    As Jon has proven to us all, it's doable as a tall person, but the stock bench seat at stock rail height just seems to not be enjoyable for anyone with a semi-taller torso.

    You're not alone in the department of ergonomically incorrect. Brody has a love-hate relationship with my 521. He can't see the upper half of the cluster, and hits his head often on the roof over bumps in the road if he's not paying attention to duck a little. He looks like Mr Incredible in his itty-bitty car when he drives it. It was made for shorter, stumpier folk like me :) Glad to see you're back and in another 620 KC that you can love again. :thumbup:

    haha, she is super sweet, I'm just saying, you never know what a dog will do when sensing hostility like Nana's ;) She is actually playing in each of those photos... she's just big and looks psychotic a lot

    Ah, yes, a cat makes more sense! We will see what we feel like doing when it gets a bit closer :)

    I saw Steve ask about bringing his dog to the last one..... you said as long as he didn't eat your dog. What kind of dog do you have? Just curious if it is going to look like a tasty snack to our big girl if we bring her along.
