Found some old pictures of my 1st car (truck)!! :D Thought some might enjoy seeing them.

Back in the day, when I was just a kid out of high school I bought a BRAND NEW 1979 620. From Smith Mesa Datsun here in Mesa AZ. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of it bone stock because I started to modify it within a couple weeks of getting it. Eventually I got it all done and showed it many times, including the "World Of Wheels" shows.

I remember seeing all the "Cal" style trucks in the magazines and that is what influenced me. I loved that look. Someday I will have another "old school" 620!

Here are the earliest pictures I can find of it. I already had the wheels on the rear and flares on the rear. At the time I could not afford all the wheels and tires at one time, so I did the rears then the fronts.

I hope you enjoy the picts...............Dale - AZ_L320

Here are a couple more at its next stage as I progressed on the truck.

Now the front wheels are on as well as the flares bolted on.

This is at time when the hood was off (out getting louvered). I see I had some of the chroming under the hood done. Also started "molding" in the flares on the rear! I also changed the grill to square headlights. (now I don't like the square lights, but back then we had to change things and didn't want stock..ha..ha..)

Ok, here are the last pictures of my old 620. I cant remember which show these were taken at but I think its at the PHX show. We removed all the side marker lights, welded the bed seams, removed the "DATSUN" from the tailgate, molded in all the flares. It was silver fading to Candy blue in the rear. Looked better in person!

I wonder what ever happened to this truck?? I sold it in the early eightys.

To bad you cant see all the chroming under the hood or under the truck.

Notice the glass etching on the windows, ha...ha... :) & Spinners on the wheels.

Looked like "Crushed Velvet" was in then. Also, check out the rear window louver!

Awesome 620 Dale !! I love that look too. The 5 piece wrap kits were a must back then too. I bet Steroid may know a little history on your old 620. Bring these pics with you to the PHX swap on the 23rd [if your going] & show him. TY for sharing :D

Anyone know anything about the truck in the second picture, the blue king cab 620 with the pink squiggles? There's was one that used to cruise around here in Phoenix AZ back in around 91-92 that looked exactly the same. Wondering if it's the same truck.

Okay, sounds good. I only had one guy insist on pumping my ass in Oregon. That was along the Columbia river. The rest of the time, I just hopped out and started pumping, no one said shit.



New England is strange.  Every thing good is "Wicked". Nice cars are "mint". A truck canopy is a "cap" and a tonneau is a "lid".  Losing your khakis has a whole different meaning.

Ive never been a targa fan personally. Id do maybe a sunroof. Im looking to restore a 1994 CBR900rr and have a color/design scheme similar to that truck in mind. I wonder if that truck is still around.
