This was shot on a roll of black and white film a few days after the wreck... (I'm a photographer in my spare time) the pictures i posted first were from last week, and I have a new bumper for it off a 78 210, but I just haven't mounted it on yet.
If this is intended to be a jab at Ratsuners, I could easily point out the American version of the Ratsun, the RAT ROD.. Both vehicles are based around being thrown together with random pieces, and making it work.
Love this thing!! Been following it on Instagram, but it was good to read through the thread in chronological order! Keep takin care of her. The other day my old man was bitchin at me for driving mine so hard. He said, "You're damn lucky it's a Datsun."
im pretty sure that any a-motor engine wont run very efficient at 80mph. besides, what constitutes economy for you? i still got 35mpg on my automatic 3spd. if you are wanting much more than that, maybe you shouldnt be driving a 40 year old car.
Fuel economy isn't the problem for me. I get great gas mileage. It's all about how you drive it. If you do huge pulls in all gears your fuel economy goes to shit. But 3k rpm shifts barely sip gas.
