I'm back....check out my newest Datto score! F10 sportswagon

Recommended Posts

Many bad things have happened in my life since I was last active couple years back... 4 deaths(
almost blind father is dead now...no more ridiculous administrator issues with too large of text in posts), eviction, Natzi-like city code enforcement, health problems, trucks/parts stolen, tools stolen, lost my 10y/o companion dog, lots more bad I won't mention. 

But.....I'm still the same old Harlow. I have been in hiding as act of pure survival. I haven't even been driving a Datsun for the past year++!! The 80 D-50(mitsubishi) I got on 420trade has been a stellar performer~~2.0/4speed 32+mpg in town! I drive everything like I stole it. If I wasn't a full fledged datsunwhacko I'd keep it around-can't say one bad thing about it. I have an absolutely wonderful new companion(4y/o now).....MOOO! She is truly my best friend/life line....irreplaceable! My datsun sickness has been in remission but it's back with a vengence. Tried to get the 78'510 wagon in hood river but someone beat me to it...bastard. CL ad expired but guy still had it....had $$ but sold day b4. I still want it & a 411 wagon but I did just score a bitchin' 78 F10 Sportswagon. It is not home yet....transport mon-tues. Might just drive it home if no glaring issues after fresh gas,battery,couple prayers. It's a solid low miles unadulterated original....thank god nobody ruined the patina with rattle-can primer or the worst.....baseball bat fender arch destruction attempting to cure improper wheel offset/width! Very glad nobody hung rearview mirrors on the perfect fenders. People do horrible things to Datsuns! I'm the 3rd owner....will b putting it thru it's paces very soon. Had an 82 sentra 2dsedan that I regretted selling.....F10 is front wh drive A14 4speed but still has the earlier 70's look. going to have to do some research to see what it takes to swap in later 5sp-ca18 or sentra diesel.....lightwt car should really fly with HP and suspension tweeks. Anybody in pacwest have parts/pcs info about the F10? If so send me a note. I'm often very slow responding to messages......I RARELY answer/talk on the phone(have impaired hearing-speech impediment). I am going to make it to Canby this year(Canby or Bust)....driving a bonafide Datsun. Had to hide riding in moms lexus suv last time! Hey Wayno! Like that flatbed on cl,still have my Luv fenders 4 dually 520. Denmarkboy!!....you still doing that Clay creek roundup? I STILL need my titles for the 520's. Where did u move to? Still sportin' the lil hooker? What color is it now? Rhino still in Glenwoood? That white 521 Al sold me still in your yard(twin of the canby truck)? I'm sure most of the local clan is probably active if I dig thru the forums and say HEY.....still see that red 510 off Centennial here in springfield(I always jab the throttle or honk when I drive by)-forget your name sorry. Draker(Craig!) probably still has the nice wagon....

I could ramble on but I've got to get my day started~~never enuf hours in the day no-matter how I slice it.

 

Howdy again all you datsun freeks n' geeks. I dont feel quite so "whacko" with y-all around. I will try and start a post about the F10 asap. Forum topics exclude the F10~no pull tab in other datsuns like the d21.....sure just an oversight. Where should I post stuff about it? I'll bet ol' Dmike will chime in @ some point and point me in the 'accepted' direction. Will be nice hearing from/seeing you guys again.....sorry I was gone so long. :)   H_____

Type F10 Ratsun into google...or... Datsuns and other Nissans forum. Len Robertson had one but he passed away last fall. I don't know what happened to it. HRH is rarely here but is over at NWD and would know.

This car was about an hour and a half from me posted it on Facebook with pics I got from the owner for friends to see it was a good deal at $300 I couldn't take on having more Datsun since I have 5 already and need to fix what I got.  I've seen that car here in Medford once before.  The original color of that car is Orange if you looked at the interior it's orange and some of the paint is chipping away.  It had painted bumpers and red hub caps but looked like a nice car to start with.  Did the owner ever get the driver door fixed?  He mentioned it did not close.

Oh shit, Harlow sighting. Hope things are well.

 

Can't wait to see the f10. Not many of those kicking around.
