    ok.. i went to visit my mom today... and we ended up going by one they're friends houses.. well, he had this car under a cover and i had to ask what it was.. so he showed me.. it was a 1970 Datsun Roadster 1600.. he did a frame-up resto.. let me tell you this thing was cherry.. all original.. he took this thing to the DatsunDoctor.. he bought it for $35 bucks from a friends dad, where it had been sitting in his garage for 17 yrs.. it was a rust bucket, he showed me the before pictures and i was astonished at the outcome.. i snapped some pics with my cellphone cam.. so they basically suck ,but here they are.. when i get a chance to go back over there i'm taking a real camera..

    nice, but i have never been too impressed with those cars. Z's are the only datsuns that i really like. clean looking car though.

    and where the hell is the armpit of Cali? lol

    Those cars are so god damn amazing.

    the fairlady2000 is one of the greatest cars Nissan has EVER produced.

    2010lbs 155hp in 1967... OH HELL YES I WOULD!!

    that is one clean datsun. I saw a clean 510 the other day in red... good god i think he almost caused an accidnet, i love those things.

    The 1600s only produced 96, but the 2000s with the sidedrafts produced 155.

    Nice looking car. There was a nissan/datsun convention here a couple of months ago and there were a million of those things with everything from original engine restorations to racing setups with turbo sr20's. It was fun, tons of 510s and z cars everywhere too.

    Those things deserve to be left with the motors they start with. 200whp is not out of reach and in a 1 ton car.... they FLY!
