How does this bumper look???

01 October 2017 - 05:40 PM



Is it really fucked up or semi ok?


Don't care for the 'park bench' bumpers of the '70s and smiley bumpers are impossible to find. Trying something else. May end up painting it. Not sure if grey or ???

14" tires are they still made?

I'm going to be in the market for some tires pretty soon and am having a hard time finding any. Well, any from recognizable makers. I currently have Falkon 195/60R14 but they don't make 14s now. All I get are 'passenger tires' from some maker I never heard of, probably China? wtf? Try harder?


What's available in the States? Maybe something I could order here? The on line shopping for tires is so retarded to navigate it's almost like they don't want to sell you anything. 



Game over...

I'm taking Jeffs membership date as being the birth of Ratsun, it's as good as any.  It was on or about the 20th that Jeff with the valuable help of his good friend Thomas, successfully got the original site up and running, and all it needed was members to populate it. Now 10 years later we have had over 23,000 people join to discuss or learn about their Datsuns or Nissans. It's an ever evolving group as old members 'move on' for whatever their reasons, and new members come aboard. Some even stayed and added to some of the almost 1.4 million posts! On average there are about 15-25 members online and several to many guests just mining for information.


So, how did Ratsun come about? Well old timers will remember the NWDE (north west Datsun enthusiasts) club who just happened to have a small website in the early 2000s. The members met every month to eat pizza and  talk Datsun, but underestimated the number of people populating their electronic site. A site that was quickly becoming inadequate for their needs.


Enter Jeff Hino. (now if my recollection isn't exact please add your comments in a post) Jeff met with the club and expressed interest in having raffles, meet ups, selling logos or anything that would provide cash flow to pay for needed up grades to the site. Well, basically the answer was... no. So Jeff said I'll just start my own, and did. His vision was a garage with friends drinking beer and working on their Datsun projects and DDs. The door was up and the light on and anyone was welcome to come up the driveway and 'shoot the shit'. Quickly old NWDE members switched over to the fresh, new, roomier 'Ratsun' site and newer member Datsun owners found it to be the premier place to be for discussions and information sharing. All about those infamous and iconic cars and trucks we so deeply love, made by Nissan, that they saw so fit to call... Datsun. 


So here we are 10 years later. Birth, first tooth and learning to walk and talk... but we made it with members just like you.


If you have an recollections about the early Ratsun or the old NWDE you want to share, post them up. In any case drop by and say Happy Birthday Ratsun
