I didn't make it to Canby, but...

Recommended Posts

I made people fear Datsuns. Finally won a race. Got a nice trophy, 300 bucks, and a steak dinner. Life is good.

I travelled 2600km round trip through 3 provinces with my son to rescue a 78 a10. He also threw in a peanut head intake and exhaust Mani's and I traded him a pollished Nissan valve cover for an older one that says Datsun.

I didn't make it to canby but I went on a poker run my neighbors put on to benefit the American cancer society. The flyer said cars welcome, for some reason we were the only one. There was something odd about a lone 510 in a pack of bikes. Best part was at each checkpoint people were saying look at that old Datsun and waving, the hogs in our group got no love.

Nice, congrats dude



You're gonna have to come down the street end of next month for a bbq


I have a race on Saturday, but I can roll up on Sunday. If it turns out to be a Saturday event, I will be up for leftovers.

Yes it is a mutation. But the announcers just call it a Datsun 280z. 


On Friday night car club races, I run with the GM pack. The import event promoters wont let me play with them though.

Fuck yeah!  Go Datsun, I don't care if it is GM powered!  Beat 'em all!  You still have your 521 drag truck?


Hey Matt! Yes I still have the drag 521. It's in storage waiting for a new shortblock,(96 stroke x 90 bore stuffed in a medium block) and a decision regarding the trans. As much as I like rowing gears, the brass syncros and the shift linkage aint cutting it. So it's going to get a G force or a ford c4 auto with a really loose converter. Probably the latter.
