I'm Julian, 35, lived in the kingston area for all my life, owned many 1600's, 2 1200 coupes, 2 1200 sedans, a 180B, a 240C coupe ( wish I still had that beauty, the great expances of chrome) never thought of them as collectors so they all just get sold or wrecked. I had to sell my last and favourite 1600 (see "Dattos youve spotted" thread for more info) a few years back when the second child came along and we needed a bigger house I am currently driving a Datsun 720 ute, L18, extractors, webber, bloody Datsuns, once they are in the blood a full transfusion would not get them out, anyway, the house is built and the passion is back, found this site while surfing for anything Datsun related. Keep up the good work and 1 day soon I hope to become a regular with a classic of my own.
Your only young once, but you can be imature for ever.

I am finally here WOMBAT
I found this british green Datsun Cherry in a shed down the back of scummerset I think.
Told Wombat about it and he ended up buying it.
I was going to buy it but I have far to many ZED cars.
I have owned a zed car since I was 18. Started with the 1974 260z as below. 26 in september and still tinkering with my Zed Cars.
In the long slow process of changing all my good gear from my 1975 into my 1974 260z.
1974 Datsun 260Z NA L26 5 Speed blown big ends. Had an argument with a telegraph pole when I was young dumb and stupid. Will be putting all the below goodies plus front right hand quarter panel and door into this beast eventually after a full body bare metal respray.
1975 Datsun 260Z Turbo L28 5 Speed 2.8L "L Series motor" P90 Fuel Injected Head American Block Rocker Cover "with TURBO embossed on it" Medium Cam 2.8L Diesel Crank Turbo not sure what kind. Button Clutch Close Ratio 5 Speed Racing gear box Cold Air Induction "in front of radiator" Body is slowly rusting away.
1989 300ZX Twin Turbo Z32 5 Speed 17" Brenz Rims Full Import Fairlady Model Leather Interior Lowered Suspension

Hello all DATTO drivers, I live with my wife and partner Lesley at ROSEVEARS, have owned several 180B's, two 120why's and several Datsuns that went missun and became nissuns. Ie, one Bluebird series 3 and two Prairies alias the BOX. My favourite, the ONE TWO OH WHY stn/wagon. What a faithfull and mighty beast. This datto, purchased 1983, retired 2006, 600,000 ks, has taken us places most people only dream about and places very few fwd owners have been. Never broke down, NEVER RAN OUT OF FUEL, bogged in sand once. Cheers everyone, Bruce
