Welcome. Can't wait to see pics
That might help. I know there is another thread about photobucket specifically.

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!"

Thanks for adding me guys. Here is my truck I'll be posting more pics tomorrow under the hood and everywhere else. Let me know what you think. Any advice? Any ideas? Anything you want to know? I'm excited.

It looks like the previous owner did a paint job before sale. To bad they painted things that shouldn't be painted, hood trim, door handles, taillight housing, from what I can see.
Does it run and drive. Check brakes, fuel, charging. All good than drive it. That's all the advise I have until you can tell us 'the plan'

New member here too, still learning how to navigate the forum. The pictures of this Datsun 620 pick up are beautiful, I'm currently in the market for a Datsun Stanza, peoplem is... I don't know where to start looking. Hoping someone on this forum can link me up.
Start your own thread. Plenty of A10s left to be had.

You can't hang if your nuts haven't dropped...it's physics

Looks like an awesome start...the last Datsun (daily driver) I owned was a 1974...not nearly as nice as yours tho...
My son lived in Topeka for several years...he has since moved to Lawrence....I love love love Kansas...hoping to end up there before my time is done here....
Keep up the good work...
...it is pure sex to drive around town. Kinda like darting around in your favorite pair of britches... (thanks difrangia)

Did the dog come with the truck ?
If so, you got a hell of a deal....
"All of a sudden it started making noise, then started losing power. I limped the car home and tried to get it up the driveway, the engine just died."
Why do people do this?
A $100 tow bill is never as much as the extra damage you cause by trying to "limp the car home".
Don't be that person !
