There are a lot of nice cars on here, but I am a little disappointed that there were no 1600/2000 Datsun road-
sters pictured. I had a silver 1968 Datsun 2000. it was one of the most fun sportscars I have ever owned. I was the third owner on it and it was about 6 years old when I bought it.

I used to take it on the Z club drives and it stayed right
with them in the twisties. I have wished a hundred times that I had kept it.

You can get another one! I am restoring a 68 2000 right now. There are forums dedicated to the roadsters and a mailing list. These cars can be had for a couple of thousand dollars in good working order if you shop around a bit.

I would love to have another one, but at 68 I do not have the desire to restore one and I do not have the money to buy an already restored model.

Fixed incomes are the pits, too bad I can't fix my outgo as
well. Now I have to add part D Medicare to my expenses when I don't even need it.

That truly is a classic! Must be tough to find parts for but it looks to be cosmetically complete.
Yeah I think parts for this car are basically non-existant, which is why most will have to be fabricated, luckily, most of it is in great condition! The biggest problem right now is the weather stripping, its still their but after 47 years, rubber just cant hold its shape anymore! I have pictures and information on it at my site:

Welcome To Project Datsun

Right now I'm just doing some basic things. Cleaning out the gas tank, replacing the battery, filters, and the carb will need to be rebuilt. I "think" after that she should run! So I'm crossing my fingers and taking pictures and notes of all my progress. :)

I'm from SoCal (US), it's nice to see some Datsun Cherrys from all over the world.
Here is mine, its a 1981 Datsun 310 GX (that's what they are called here). Here are some pics:













The motor runs perfect, i'm trying to fiddle with the suspension and brakes and make some improvements- hopefully :)

What'd you pull the Zetec out of -a Ranger? How much of a weight savings/increase did it provide? What engine management did you use? Now that Nissan stopped making decent 4's , it's nice to see someone taking advantage of the good 4's that some of the domestic manufacturers have been coming out with lately.

Zetecs never came in a Ranger. This was a 2004 factory crate motor. The Zetec is a European motor that Ford is using, there is tremendous aftermarket for it in Europe. If you look at the photo, it is turned sideways to make it RWD. It is mated to a Ford Type 9 tranny and run with a Contour SVT computer. Nothing was cut, and the motor sits level. The transmission even comes out the factory hole. Brackets were made to have the Zetec mate to the factory Datsun mounts. It is putting out 200+ HP in an 1800 pound car. You don't know it's there until I let you know.It is a lot of fun.

This one is my favorite though. 1964 Datsun 1500


And this is my Home Depot runner
