Well, I said I had to have it....and now I do. Weekend before this one I went down to see Datsunfreak and check out the wagon he had for sale...and bought it.  Went this weekend and picked her up.  Great guy, great deal.
It is a little over 600 miles one way between his place and mine so I put in 2400 miles over the past 2 weekends and well...alot of hours behind the wheel.  Right now I have no idea what direction I am going to go with it.  The one sure thing.....gonna make her at least good enough to drive around the block( it has been 25 or so years since I have driven a goon).  Then I want to get her good enough to make the Williams show in AZ this October probably in the diamond in the rough category as I really don't think I can get her done completely by then.
 
Oh, shut it ya'll let me see if I can get some pics off PB

Tucked away in the garage with her new siblings....green one goes to get blasted tomorrow and then off to body and paint......I should really update the thread on that one now that I think of it.

Edit: Texas storm pic fix

Oh, yeah the blue is staying.  I really wanted a white one but after sitting in the garage drinkin beer, smokin cigs, and just lookin at her, I have decided this is one sexy bitch.

 

Alittle more info.  It has the power train out of an 80 200sx so...Z20E motor, 5spd, and the rear end too so we have disc brakes on the back.

I was sad that John sold the goon before I got to see her in person. I'm happy to see she stayed in the Ratsun family.

It looks like an awesome car. If that's a diamond in the rough, then my goon is a piece of coal in the wastewater treatment plant.

I love the car. Be good to it.

Nice goon! It looks great in the photos, I guess mine are in the junkyard category. :)

The diamond in the rough category (at least for the Williams show) is defined as the car with the most potential.......wait I may be wrong....it could be defined as the roughest Datsun with the most potential.......I may need to rethink my position, this girl ain't all that rough.  I could put in the 510 category but if Datrod brings his....I'll get my ass kicked.

It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Little issue with fitting the rear calipers but not to worry, I am very certain I can fix that with a grinder B)

 

Didn't get too far today and gotta start a new job tomorrow so maybe this weekend I'll move a little more

That's why they weren't on yet...   :blush:

 

If grinding the caliper bracket won't fix it, lowering blocks will.  B)

Oh, you're just sayin that so I WILL lower it.  Seems like maybe a quarter inch at the most needs to come off.

Cool. I was afraid it was more like 2"...   :rofl:

 

And I still have those 1" blocks if you need them.  :thumbup:
