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.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

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.

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 :)

I came here today to chew some bubblegum and kick some ass. Right now I'm all out of bubblegum. 

 

My biggest fear is that when I die, My wife will sell my cars for what she thinks I have in them.

Thanks for the pics, brought back lots of good memories, especially the blond with the long "hippie hair"! My ex had hair like that when we met. Posted Image

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 ;)

I saw three of these parked outside the local Starbucks this morning, which tells me only one thing. There's too many self indulgent wieners in this city with too much bloody money. Now, if I was driving a 1973 610 four-door...
You would not be a self indulgent wiener, sir. You'd be a connoisseur.
Precisely. Champagne would fall from the heavens. Doors would open. Velvet ropes would part.

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
