Reminds me of a VK I saw yesterday... It had a monster bonnet scoop (the rearward venting type) that looked like it was made from cardboard and covered most of the drivers view. yuk.

But then again, each to their own. It probably makes the owner happy and that's all that matters.

Hi.

:D . i have a 120y Coupe in the UK but as there are so few here it's nice to see others around the world. there are only 18 Coupes on the UK DVLA register but i suspect there are only half of these on the road. mine has been dry stored for 15 years before it was 'found' a few years ago. i'm owner number four but it's had three owners within the last few years. i bought the car already modified with a Mazda MX5 engine and gearbox. i have done a fair bit more to the car to keep on improving the ride and handling. the UK cars were very prone to rust so finding one with very little rust is not easy.

there is a build thread HERE which starts with a different owner but i kept the same thread alive.

:D


oh , and i work on old cars for a living 8)

cheers.

Welcome to the forums Bozwell. :thumbsup:

Nice to see a Datto from another part of the globe with an interesting engine transplant, I have to admit the cope/lift back or cockroach as its often referred to here is pretty rare here too, together with the two door sedans but have plenty of 4 doors....

Got any more specs or perhaps plan on making a build thread on the members rides section???

Looks great! :hail:

Hi, new to your site, seems well supported, nicely done. I hail from South Africa and have a really beat-up 610 SSS which I use for historic circuit racing. I'll post something in the rides section.
Cheers.

Hi all my name is Dan.

New to the site first car was a 120Y coupe , have had a couple more since a 240z and a 120y 4 door.

unfortunatly i dont have any atm but have a 120Y coupe and a 4 door on there way just rasing the funds.

Coupe will be mine and the 4 door will be the daughters.

I have noticed that a lot of people have been putting in the more modern motors in the old Y's but im a little old school and will probably keep them A series ( with a bit of work :twisted: )

will post up a build thread when i get them cheers :thumbsup:

Hey Guys New to this site. My name is Dean.
Currently don't own a dato, But wanted one since I was a young kid. Just waiting on the right one to come up and plus the right funds to turn up in the bank account.

Going to start getting some ideas earlier so I know what to do with it when the time comes.

Welcome guys! I'd casually remind everyone that hasn't set their Location in their Profile to do that at some point, very helpful. :)

My very first car was a 1200 ute with a hot a14, thats wen i got the datsun bug lol, just before i turned 19 i got my 1600, it has an fj20 running twin 40mm webers, turbo fj gearbox with 10in heavy duty turbo clutch, R180 diff and shafts, R31 skyline rear brakes and discs, skyline c210/or 240k front struts with, honda legend rotors with land crusier/hilux.4 pot calipers, custom made adjustable castor rods, strut brace, whiteline swaybar and lots more but thats enough for now.

My 1600 has been off the road for 6 years gettin a face lift, very slow progress but will be worth it, i no longer have my ute i sold that to fund the 1600 face lift, i will post some pics asap, of what my 1600 looked like when i got it, and my old 1200 ute.
