In this book. I did 75 silhouettes, and the author never wrote what type of car it was so... mua ha ha. (And I gave it a Ratsun Badge. Represent!)
Here is the rest of the book.
This one is a children's book and is a sequel to one I did that came out last year. This is my 510! (Though I had to get creative with the proportions to make the characters big enough!)
So, even when I am not on Ratsun, I am on Ratsun.

this is Aolë 2 say thank you 2 everyone that even looks at this. If you have done more then thank you 2. This has taken well over 3.5 hours 2 type so please take a few minutes 2 read (trust I filled n time last 2 b more accurate). If you don't know what happened then read thread. Per docs I would never regain consciousness or if I did I'd b a vegetable. Well neither ended up true. Basically, I feel like I have come far but I have far 2 go. I learned 2 talk but I still can't stand or walk. I was supposed 2 have no memory but I forgot a lot & I remember a lot. 2 things I do remember are rockets and DATSUNS. It was very nice 2 think about fixing my car but it's totaled. Ask anything you want.

Hainz's video helped immensely. Datzenmike's knowledge and mklotz's r&d are valuable as well. The list goes on and on. There's good folks here and I'm proud to be part of this community. Even with the weirdos!

The doctors say that I have a awsome chance of being off the machines and live a full life without transplants!
Thank you all again for the thoughts, prayers, and support. I do have obligations pending with a couple of you, have no fear that they will be taken care of. And sorry for the delay!

...you know other Datsun owners by their forum name but not their actual name.
..."I was in a Datsun" is a legal defense against speeding tickets.
...your boss actually believes "My car broke down" when you're late.
...your trunk tools are both metric and SAE.
...you can precisely recite the make, model and year of every non-original part on your car (at least 20) but can't remember your kid's birthday or your anniversary.

Also, some of us were curious how many Ratsun members were actually at Canby. Seemed to be the dominate force. So please answer the poll if you get a chance.
Sorry couldn't figure out the embed. Spent an hour. If you have the vimeo embed trick let me know.

First of all the "Title" should state exactly what you are selling while being brief. The Bones of it.
Ex. 195/75/14 Tires with like new tread $100
Ex. 69 Datsun 510 WagOOn $2900
Ex. 15 x 6 Chrome pathfinder rims 6 lug. $100
Now for the ad itself. This should also be bfief, but still give the potential buyer a good idea of what they are getting. We dont need to hear about your life story Stick to the item 4 sale
Ex. This is a 79 Datsun King Cab truck with a L20b & 5 speed tranny. Has new weber 32/36 & runs like a top. Just put in a new clutch kit & tranny shifts smooth. Tires are good. Brakes are good. Interior is clean with stock tach, nice stereo, & center console. Body is str8 with minimum rust & original paint. $2500 CASH (Clear Title) Call 555-123-5555 for more info or to set up a time to see truck.
This ad tells the viewer about the drivetrain, interior & body. It lets them know that it runs & drives & is a clean mostly stock truck.
DONT PUT YOUR ADDRESS IN THE AD. You dont want every Tom Dick & Kari knowing where u live & that you have a priceless Datsun on hand.
I likem to leave my phone #. It gives the viewer a couple of ways to reach me.
Now for the most important part of your ad. PICS Like the saying goes, "A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS" Now on Craigslist you get 4 views in your basic ad. I have seen people with more but I dont know how they do it. When im looking for a vehicle I like to see pics of all sides of the rig, interior shot, & engine shot.
This shot shows the rear & the passenger side @ the same time
This shot shows both the drivers side & the front
If I am selling rims or tires I make sure to let the viewer know what size they are. What lug pattern & what they will fit.
Ex. 15x8 Chevy ralleys with 205-60-15 tires with good tread. Came off my Datsun but will fit many other 6- lug 5.5" pattern vehicles Mazda, Chevy, GMC, Nissan, Toyota 4x4, Ford Courier, Isuzu, Dodge D50 & others.
This automaticallyn includes "9" brands of cars in your ad for those that use "search" words (key words)
Pics for tires & rims should show sidewall & a good shot od tread. People like to see the tread
There are more things that can be covered but this is a good basic beginning for a successful ad. Good luck & I hope this helps
