Hi there everyone just Registered here on Ratsun, there seems to be a great deal of good information on this forum so i decided this is the place to be! I'm looking forward to soaking up some of your knowledge. I live in Murrieta CA, I recently Bought a 1970 pl521 and i am loving it! my truck has an L18 engine and a 5speed, a sock modified into an air filter on the hitachi carb.. a bit of rust, yep she's pretty dreamy. Kinda bummed the previous owner cut off all the bed hooks. also sorry about the pics the only lens i have for my camera right now is a fisheye.

Seconded!

They won't let you drive they're newer, heavier, safer, well insured cars but they'll put you in a 250hp soup can? Dude, your parents are dicks.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall,
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

Welcome aboard!

You'll find a wealth of information here, and a lot of fun too! Most forum categories have "pinned" topics~ those which are more pertinent. Some topics are application-specific, some a little racey, and some just for fun~ i.e.- http://community.rat...-insomniacs-20/
You'll meet some real personalities here as well~ more varied than those smileys~~~>
Although some of us fit into a different category~ Posted Image Hehehe...

Now get that camera goin, and lets see some real OICS! <~~~there's a backstory there, ask SKIB
Peace~

Welcome! Good intro.

Ahh bed hooks. I remember when to remove or not remove them was the biggest argument on Ratsun. Anyone else remember that? The simpler days.

Anyway, I have the hooks on mine, and they are staying BUT, you are lucky they are gone on yours in a way. Because I have torn so many F'n pockets on those damn things I want to rip them off. But I wont.
