Pics from the 70s


Recommended Posts

Some of you that know me know my dad passed away in August of Lung Cancer. Well, I've been going through a lot of his pictures of his life. I felt these needed to be shared. Chilliwack Datsun, 1970's

This is my beast. Not as cool as your guys old stuff. I wish I could find a good 510 in Canada. Most them are small piles of red dust.

 

You can find more updates on KA-T.org in the next year. Aiming for 500hp...2 year build happening outside of the car.

great pictures. Check out the old KFC sign on the last pic of the Import Model.

 

Tedman took some pics of a 510 meet at the Nissan HQ back in 84 or 85 and I was in the background of one of them when I was 14.

Thanks for sharing, always love those pics of new dats at the dealership. The pic of your car, is that at the same dealership?

Gotta love bell bottom pants. :rolleyes: And the chick is pretty hot. I'll bet she is my age now. Sorry to hear about your pops. But he must have been the biggest datsun guy on the planet. Way to many super cool cars in one spot.

 

Thanks :)

Mmmm hottie Datsun chicks...

See if she'll pose for a pic on the wagon. With all of the plastic surgery options out there, maybe she's now in her prime ;)

lol thanks guys.

 

Dad was not a huge datsun fan. But he did always tell me how on any twisty road he would destroy camaro's and cudas. He just hated how they all rusted out and ended up piles of dust. At least here in Canada, thats what they all did.

WOW thanks for the pics , I was living in that town in the late 70s and remember that dealership , my mom took her 620 there for service and got the truck back with a cracked windshield , a few years later she bought her 81 king cab there too

Very Cool Pictures!

I remember that early 70's era well, it's really a blast to see pics of Datsuns from that time. I can identify with those band members! I'm about that age.

Looks like series 2 Z's, 72 or so?

Wonder what the story was on that green Z with the steel wheels? Private car owned by a salesguy? I like the headlight covers!

Also like seeing a parking lot, full of cars from that time frame.

VW Beetles and a bus, a Barracuda, 62 Chev,and all the BRAND NEW Datsuns!
