Probably about 39 years old, and it was a 1967 datsun roadster.

27 datsun/Nissan 720 pickup. That was probably 8 months ago. If the question was when did you get your second Datsun, the answer would be, tomorrow. *fist pump*

Well we had 2 Datsun 620's at my house, and my dad always said the 79 was mine. I bought my first Datsun during the summer of 1993 for 400$, I was 12 years old and had a really successful lawncare and landscape business, and I bought a 1980 Datsun 720 longbox with the l20b. It had a blown headgasket. I fixed that truck with my dad and he drove it until I turned 14 and got my license.

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.

18. Got my 210, owned it for a year before I drove it.
