#626687 Mitsubishi Addiction lol

Posted by RaptorReed on 04 February 2012 - 12:18 AM

Hey everyone, I'm Tim and I don't currently own any Dattos, but in light of one of my buddies (tristingrind) picking up one I'm sure I'll be learning about them soon enough. I do however own a '76 Mitsubishi Colt Galant Coupe and '77 Colt Galant Wagon, used to have a 91 Galant VR4 but due to some serious cancer issues it was in my best interest to strip and scrap at the time. I believe it was Bananahamuck (sorry, I forget your name lol) I met at the NissanParts/MitsuParts meet in Olympia back in August, real cool guy! I was the lone Classic Mitsubishi surrounded by Z cars and 510s that day lol. I know there's several other WA folks on here so...I'm located way up in Oak Harbor, WA, but often enough venture down to the Seattle-Tacoma area periodically. I'm sure some have seen the wagon at a few meets here and there or on the road.

Pics! We all love pics!
The Wagz! Before I swapped the gawdy stock front bumper out for a '75 chrome bumper.

#679369 93 Eclipse gs Widebody

Posted by Syncro on 01 May 2012 - 09:53 PM

Just noticed this section and had to post up my eclipse aka Mischief, project. I got the car back in 2007 when I was 11. The car ran great but we never used til we got tired of fixing up another pos 1.8l eclipse we had. anyway, here's what it basically looked like when i got it, except paint was much worse:

2011-04-19_12-09-44_924.jpga couple of months, my dad decides we should build something similar to a 76 camaro he'd built in the 80's. This meant fender flare's, wide wheels, a whale tail, and several other things I'm not gonna get into, basically all efforts were to make it more aerodynamic. I worked on the whale for a couple months and its still not finished, but here's a couple of old pics of it after the whale tail and hood bulges. 2010-10-22182157-1.jpgKeep in mind that the current hood is just a mold for the fiberglass hood I'll be making. I'll update with more photo's tomorrow.




#974729 Eagle Adam ripped me off

Posted by Eagle_Adam on 31 August 2013 - 04:37 PM

Hold the fuck up asshole.

Yes you paid me $90
Yes I sent u a radiator and a fan with the promise of following up with 620 hood arms.

Yes I have not yet sent you the hood arms yet, still haven't found em to be honest

And yes you sent some PM's

But that where the truth ends and your BS and lack of understand of the truth begins

You don't know me, you have no idea what's going on in my life that are 10x more important than car parts.


So go fuck yourself and your public cry for attention.

I refunded you PayPal payment in FULL, your $90 is a drop ik the bucket bro, as for me....

Well ill let the friends I've made and countless people I've sent parts to speak for my reputation in response to your bitch ass post.

Fuck you, I'm done


#621072 Fisch Art- Sneaks datsun illustrations into kidsbooks!

Posted by fisch on 27 January 2012 - 10:39 AM

Thought you guys would appreciate this. Most of you know I am an illustrator who does kids books, novels that sort of thing. So I finished two books over the last few months and snuck some Datsun art in there!

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!)

Posted Image

Here is the rest of the book.
Posted Image

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!)
Posted Image

So, even when I am not on Ratsun, I am on Ratsun.

Posted by Icehouse on 25 April 2013 - 10:36 PM

We aquired this bus about 1 year ago, for a 1964 it's in really good shape.  Although at first the body looked good with minimal bubbling with closer inspection I could tell there was some sort of body filler.  After sitting the winter it was looking a bit worse, not much but rust bubbles make me sick!  Anyways I'll type more later I just want to upload a few pictures of it.

#1061054 UPDATE: STOLEN 521: FOUND!

Posted by jammin on 05 March 2014 - 02:16 PM

Hey everyone!  Got a call from King County Sherrif @ 5:00 this morning...my 521 was found with the thief driving it to boot!! So the Datsun gods were a smiling!   I asked if the thief resisted arrest, but sadly no. But they got the bastard and no damage to the White Pony.   They drove it from Seattle to Bellingham and then back, so I guess I know she is roadworthy!!If anyone is from Burlington, Washington and they are missing a sweet moped, it was in the back of my truck and the king county police have it.   Well..its actually at the tow yeard still.  Thanks for all the kind words...there is justice out there!!!

All-
this   is AolĂ« 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.

#974938 My apologies to you Adam and Ratsun

Posted by cruznude on 31 August 2013 - 09:59 PM

Lets just say that first, sorry Adam about critisizing you and your integrity.  I've never met you and from what I've read in the past, I should of trusted you or at least not been so hostile with my words.  The fact is yes, people have busy lives and this world doesn't evolve around just myself.  Please accept my apologies.  I will pay you for the parts and shipping.  I'll send you the monies again in the morning.  To all of those who actually know you and had words to say.  I didn't mean for all this shit to hit the fan.  I just wanted a response and got a little more.  I'm sorry

#564870 The BMX bikes of Ratsun

Posted by yello620 on 19 October 2011 - 09:22 PM

How about a thread to show off your BMX bike? :D

I have recently re-found an interest in BMX bikes, so i bought this older Diamondback. I am kind of trying to build the bike i didnt get to have when i was a kid. :D

Cetainly nothing to special, all original except the front tire. 1996 Diamondback Assault, chrome frame, 21" TT. I need to find a back wheel and a brake system for it.


#997571 So i bought my first Datsun: Datsun 160j sss

Posted by kimppen on 24 October 2013 - 01:06 PM

Hey guys,

 

So i was looking for some cool j-tin for an long time, i was looking at 240z:s but they felt to mainstream, every carguy knows what a z looks like. I wanted somthing that screamd "japanes car" but still was pretty and overseamd  by the masses... Something with that litle extra(turbo :D ). And then this happened:

  

I bought my first Datsun, a -74 Datsun 160j sss.

 

I have always been a Toyota guy, but this time i wanted to try somthing different (yes i still have a ke35 corolla to :D ).

 

The car is running an turboed and supercharged Bmw m42 1.8l engine, equiped with MS.   

 

Rims: Xxr 513:s.

 

Plans for the cold Finnish winter:

-I disasembled the engine for an overhaul: I ordered new conrods, bearings, timingchain and an cometic .120 MLS headgasket. Im playing with the tought of adding an methanol injection (somebody please talk me out of this :D )

-I really would need to add an LSD for better grip.

 

Hopefully you will enjoy this tread:

 

And some pics for the p*cwh*rs :D

 

(Sorry for the quality of the pics, the are mostly from the ad i found, haven't had the time to take pictures: i have driven the shit out of here insted :rofl: )

#994648 Nobody wants to play with me :( vintage mitsubishi?

Posted by IncorpoRatedX on 17 October 2013 - 04:20 PM

hey guys, it's not a datsun but i often find datsun guys rocking similar styles to what im doing with my car and I dont really have an active forum to participate in, the vintage mitsu ones are generally pretty dead. I registered on here because I figured I could find some agressive wheel combos on here in 4x114, moreso than other forums I frequent anyhow. People often come up to me and say 'sick datsun dude, what year' when i tell them it's a mitsu they always respond with 'whoa! never seen one' haha

 

Important bits:

73 Mitsubishi Galant Wagon (dodge colt)

Turbo 4G63

Datsun ZG flares

Work Meister CR-01 15x10/8 combo

 

here's some pics:

 

early on i had diamond racing wheels

#976947 Stolen Datsun 510

Posted by Zack M. on 05 September 2013 - 09:47 AM

Just got the word.  The car has been found, out in the Pittsburgh/Antioch area.  Probably just ran out of gas, no key for the fuel door.  No reported damage or parts missing either.  Should get her back today.

 

Thanks for all the concern and help everybody.  Time to put some GPS in it so this won't happen again!
