Its not a JEEP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also its not a sammy so if you were gonna say that just don't.


This is my Mothers Suzuki 1980 LJ 80 that I am goining to be trying to put back on the road for her :thumbup:

Finding parts is um well impossible (320 guys its about like that).

So I need to just do basic stuff, breaks, belts/hoses, transmission rebuild :confused: .


So here is a pic for you you pic hungry monsters.

So I bought my great Gramps 1991 Chevy S10 with the 2.8L V6 and 107k on the clock and it runs pretty good (it is coming to Canby).

It kinda screams Gramps with the cap on, looks a lot better with the cap off. I just put some regular Les Schwab Eclipses on there because it is gonna see a lot of miles.


It has one of the best rides I have felt in a long time so I don't really feel like Moaaaaar looooooooooooooooooooow on this one, a body kit and 17 inchers with a cowl induction hood would be nice.

Also the whole thing is more bone stock than a pacer and maintained like the golden gate bridge.

So far I have fixed the AC, oil change, just basic stuff really. washed and waxed (paint is super faded but the whole rig is basically rust free). It needs new shocks desperately, but other than that and a tank of ethanol trash it is basically good. Do any of you guys have experience with these? Mods? It is not bad on power, especially when compared to a Z24.

Also it desperately needed a name.

Parts truck build/One wasn't enough

01 April 2017 - 09:00 PM

I have officially caught the Datsun fever and now I have two.


I have been watching craigslist for about 7 months looking for a parts truck and I thought that I had finally found one, an 86 720 "running on 2 cylinders" with no title and a rusted out bed. So I went to Yakima and picked it up last night, and sadly it was running good enough to take it for a test drive, and it has a rebuilt tranny that feels AMAZING and a brand new clutch it just sounds terrible and is down on power. So the guy is going to work with me on the title thing and if I can't get that fixed then it will be a parts truck for sure, otherwise you guys might be able to convince me to drop the front end or maybe make a flat bed dually, totally looking for input on this one. I will do a wet and dry compression test and check for spark on the plugs (seriously hoping for a spark issue because I can easily fix that, valves or heads make me nervous). It had an optima in it so I was super jacked up about that, but then he took it out.  :confused:  :crying:  :yawn:







Seriously clean weber install





















oh and no power steering. And it has a surprisingly clean coolant reservoir, it kinda looks like it was parked under a carport with the back end hanging out and the cab mostly covered. That or used to haul saltwater at the Bonneville races (although underneath it looks very solid).
