Why is everyone an ass hole. Nice wagon. Do whatever you want to YOUR car.

Located in SoCal.

Just trying to figure it out.

too funny, guy drives 500 miles to a beer Mecca and then goes to a mall for TGI Friday's style pub. Proves that money can't buy you taste.


So first you want the plate surrounds and follow by I have no taste. Let's try to figure this out..

It's been a few hours and already 2 pages. Ratsun celebrity status. Subscribed.

Now my take on this one. I think black with red interior and Wantanabes is the ticket.

But since my opinion doesn't matter I guess green buffed out is cool. I would never buff out green and leave, that's just me though.

What dash is this. A 1969 510 we were not sure.


Yep, sure looks like a 69 dash. Some cars titled as early 70 had it too but it came out on the 69 model.

Nice car. I saw it when Forest listed it. Surprised it took so long to sell. I guess it was meant for you.

So you are gonna drive this one for a while and develop a plan for it?

Also, I've determined, I'm not a hoarder, I'm a collector.
As I'm sure a lot of the old school datsun guys are.



Enjoy the Ride!

Glad you made it home Mr Big, That's a clean wagon. Just put the new bumpers and some watt's on it and drive the hell out of it.

 

(Laotsu)  Mr Big is not a beer drinker. So that's why the TGI's for dinner.


I came here today to chew some bubblegum and kick some ass. Right now I'm all out of bubblegum. 

 

My biggest fear is that when I die, My wife will sell my cars for what she thinks I have in them.

I see no reason you can't spend a ridiculous amount of money on it ,, while still driving it around..  Just carry that ipad thing around with mega pics of your trucks,, and if anyone even hints at fixing the wagon up,,, whip that sum bitch out.,, and yell " lookey here mutherfucker!!"  

    I have said it before and i will say it again,, some of us are on very limited budgets ( and it shows :rofl: )  so all we have is others such as you,,  spending their money fixin up old vehicles..


So somehow while i was driving back from Eaglerock swap meet i somehow caused YOU to post this,,,, do really think members on this site are that stupid to believe i caused it??

http://community.rat...un-for-a-while/

Yeah i guess you do,,

 

BTW ,,,, the first person to call you a pussy,,,, ya might wanna check out his ethnicity ,, cuz i don't think it's what you think it is there snowflakeboy

 


..........................I shall call it, narclops.

So first you want the plate surrounds and follow by I have no taste. Let's try to figure this out..

Like you were ever going to give them up. 

 

I never expected you to have taste, you live in L.A. land of the Leno. At least guys like you make my outdated foreign shitbox worth quite a lot these days.

 

Keep up the good work on that pristine Wagon.

Let us be honest with ourselves here, what can you do with something like this except spend money on it and take it to a show if there is no possibility of it raining, one could likely buy 50 different 68-73 Datsun 510 wagons with the money spent on this car, we don't have a lot of them type of folks on Ratsun, as they would not associate with most of us, I have customers with cars like this, they don't want to pay me shit, but they will spend $40,000 dollars on a paint job for a 35 Ford truck, there is hardly anything there to paint, and the guy isn't interested in any of my Datsuns at all.

I could never own a car like that, I would rather have a house to live in, and food to eat.
