1981 280zx at 13.
I win haha

no you lose cause you have to wait 3 years to even drive it....

i had a 69 and 70 (thats 2) 521 at 16 that were both bought for 275 total. rebuilt the l16, did a full resto on the dash, then went to paint it and guy wanted 2500 to pint it, couldnt justify it and scrapped the truck sold the engine and lost the dash in a quick move from a house that we had 24hrs left and couldnt go back for it...... wish i hadnt scrapped em both cause now theyd both be done lol. first datsun i drove was my 67 411 sss at 24. now i have 6 datsuns and 8 cars total. i live in a shop lol

you read my post like a woman would, interpreting.... not actually reading.

wait skib loves the cock

Should I do it to myself or get skib to hammer me?

Ever hear that saying about people in glass houses Syncro?

12 dads 240 which became my project from that day forward. He got drunk wrecked it then around 15 give or take got my 320 in a few pieces but still drove fine all the way home. Still tinkering like always never really finished.

It's all in the matter of the game of me winning and you losing.

What was the Datsun that got you into Datsuns?

 

I'll start:

I just got my first Datsun and I'm loving working on it. It's a 1980 720 King Cab pickup. Last year of the L20B. I've owned it a whopping 6 weeks...

I've been a VW guy most of my life but I could see this starting a new obsession.

Dad one day came with a 69 pickup I was maybe 14 just liked it and wanted to wash it every weekend just to drive it into the driveway ---it had the little washing machine motor 1300-it was blue then dad said he was gonna get rid of it yup I wet my eyes but not as much as when he got home with a bright red 71 -- HP 1600 well it looked like to me and yes I wet my shorts----- well what does he do,    he mixed concrete in the bed to fix a broken ditch he was irrigating---I drove that truck all thru high school with dry concrete in the bed.

21, in 2007 I bought a 1981 Datsun 280zx that I had been eyeballing for 2 weeks going to work everyday until I bought it for $1500 from a tiny car lot in Central Point, Oregon close to my old high school. I was actually looking for a 240z or a 260z because there was a shop a few streets down that had 260z in front sitting for years even before I was in high school even after high school I offered to buy it but guy refused said it was his sons car and was gonna put a V8 in it so I went for the 280zx and drive it home!

No I was one of the guys trying to find a buyer for it 15 minutes after it was posted. I didn't have the cash or I might have been the owner.

May have been technically before I was born or a few months after I'm not quite sure on the timeline. I know right around the time I was born my Dad bought a B110 for real cheap as it had been in a front and rear fender bender and my earliest car memories are riding in it or my Mom's 510. As soon as I got my license it was officially mine but I had been working on it and driving it long before that.
