Posted 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.

Hello new guy!

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.

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.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

I was on here ( what`s the chances lol ) last night after Craig Ferguson getting a 411 fix , and there was only about 10 or less members, saw the name and kept thinking why does that call sign ring a bell so much..Funny thing is i normally check out general-shenanigans first .. And probably the first time my screen name has been mentioned with out " will you shut the hell up " attached..Posted Image


So all you midwest east coast guys that say i want a ( insert style ) Datsun but they are all to far away.. this crazy bastard bought that wagon and drove the damn thing home from " your side " ..It`s a great story

Thanks for Welcomes everyone!

]2eDeYe - You will probably see the Yellow car most often towards Summer! I have a bunch of Aussie parts to install (Quad headlights & grill, Small bumpers, and cooler tails)


Lol yes, I bought the Wagon in South Carolina, then proceeded to drive it back for its' maiden voyage. Planned on making it to the Old School Reunion, but due to carb and dizzy issues upon arriving in SC I had to spend a week and my friend's house troubleshooting, now it has a Electronic Dizzy and clean carb! The wagon is currently sitting at 66,800 on the clock from the time I picked it up in June with 54,850miles. Took me about 4.5 days to get home and the only issue I encountered the whole trip was simply, it has a single core radiator and these cars were never built to do a constant speed above 55mph on the highway lol. It made it all through the Appalachians and Rockies just fine, Idaho and Eastern Oregon were the more challenging moments. Not bad for a car that had pretty much been sitting and not driven more than 500 miles since 1998.

Somewhere near the WA/OR border when I diverted off the highway and headed towards the tri-cities to cut through the state.

Yes I have, but one project at a time Posted Image! The Coupe will be going 5 lug with Starion front hubs and a narrowbody Toyota Hilux rear end. I have a set of 14" Enkei 92s for the wagon, need some tires for them though.

The wagon is minty fresh on the inside with only a couple of the usual tears on the driver's seat

These are the cosmetic pieces I had shipped over from Nowra, Australia for the Coupe. Aussie Tails > Cooler and cleaner than the USDM ones.

There's no wheel gap in the rear anymore with the Narrowbody Toyota Hilux rear end in it nowPosted Image. Waiting to hear back from my Aussie friends on some more parts for this thing!


And now no interior. Changing out all my pedals too, converting the brakes to regular non-boosted brakes, the clutch to hydraulic, and the gas pedal to cable (had throttle linkage garbage)
