I need the rear window hinges and a window crank

you must have a 2 door 

the car I took apart was a 4 door no window hinges 

I might have a window crank in my totes at the swap meet 

I will be the guy with a canopy next to the green roadster called marvin

Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black.  Ask doc510 who bought those doors from him.

There was a lot of datsuns, a few Toyotas and a few Mazda, there was a plethora of vendors. Maybe next year I might bring a datsun

My Deepest Thanks to:

 

Jose Santos: Right On Jose! For hosting another chapter of The Best Datsun Swap Meet & Car Show ever.

 

Rucky Charms: for selling off a truckload of my parts, saving my back, and cracking me up all day in your sleepless stupor.

 

Tdaaj: for driving 34 hours round-trip to ER from WA to supply the southland with another van full of hard to find parts & part info.

 

Juan: from Inland Empire for your upbeat personality & help machining my parts.

 

Angela: for driving from Atascadero and back to shop for parts and visit with me and all your Datto friends

 

Julian: for your continual kindness and help with 620 & 720 parts and for driving all the way from SF bay area

 

Knoriega: for driving your chop-top 620 and inspiring me to finish my 620 AC project. (wish I weren't 6'4" tall, I'd ask for a ride :rofl:

 

Red13 & son: For your drive from the Hesperia desert, and to find the most obscure and un-thought-of datto parts I've ever seen. And for your son who is an energetic source of youthful entertainment!

 

Gene Knight: for coming in from Phoenix AZ area to sell, shop, and visit his west coast SWDP BBQ buddies. And who confessed he can take pics without everyone looking fuzzy like mine do.  

 

Chalo & Arnulfo: for being such good friends, fun repeat customers over the years, and who bring a comical challenge to the art of haggling.

 

Russel & his main squeeze Hailey: for coming in from the Inland Empire to shop and visit, is a walking encyclopedia of Datto data.

 

Neil from Santa Barbara (Or as Jose and I call him the BEWD):for his high energy, solution seeking, opportunity creating ideas,  who was the first to make me feel a part of the community. One who makes me laugh my ass off every time we speak. (Although, I'll never be able to erase from my mind the "gross joke" he got me with yesterday. Yikes :rofl:)  

 

Inland Empire Meeting Host Robert: for getting me to reconsider a serious health choice.

 

Nelson: for openly sharing his life choices.

 

The 510Keeper: for coming from Penn Valley north of Sacramento, and for creating a wild man sculpture (of yourself??)  Forgot to ask if it was for sale? It was really great. And for the spontaneous group hug at the end of the show. 

 

It truly is a very wide-spread but tight community of Datsun fans who trek from far away places to make this great event. It was the biggest gathering of my personal Datsun friends in the same place at the same time.

 

Thank you Jose very much. I hope your event continues for decades to come.  

 

I wish everyone's family Thanksgiving is as nice as mine was yesterday. Thank you everyone who attended and made it possible.  

 

Oh, and least I forget... A big "shout-out" to The-Powers-That-Be for contributing another beautiful So. Cal 80 degree sunny day!

 

(My apologies if I missed anyone in person or thanking them.)

This was absolutely the best meet I’ve been to over the last 5 years or so coming to Eagle Rock. Tons of people, tons of great parts, really nice cars, too. So many great folks in the Datsun community...it really went by fast! It was almost a blur...tons of parts shopping, haggling, side conversations, loading bought parts in my truck, then going out & doing another lap around to see what I might’ve missed, then repeating the whole thing over again. Jose, you are a good man, your wife & family are truly lovely & generous (thanks again for the gratis tacos). I’ll be praying for your mother in law to feel better soon. Sorry she had to sit this one out...hopefully next time. Thank you to everyone who came out from locales near & far to make this Datsun meet a real community gathering! Thanks also for the vendors who hoard the goodies, store the goodies, load, drive, unload, haggle, make deals, reload, & drive back year after year to help us all keep our projects going & dimes on the road.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
D-a-t-C-h-i-c-k-sU-n-i-t-e!

Thanks Jose for putting on a great swap meet.

A lot of people don't realize what it takes to put on a good meet.

I appreciate it and look forward to the next one.
