NWDE Clothing Optional AutoCross

Saturday 21 June 2014,  NWDE will be hosting its annual Clothing Optional AutoX.

As in past years this promises to be a fun, successful
weekend of hosting the WWSCC Championship
Event #4.

Where: Sanderson Field in Shelton, Washington

We named it Clothing Optional as a play on the pronunciation of our club’s acronym: NWDE = “nude”.   Drivers are, however, expected to wear clothing in public.

2014 Canby Datsun Show

By Ted, 15 June 2014

We had a good time today at a wet Canby Datsun Show. NWDE club members Ted and Jack showed with 320 trucks and Stalwart Don Anderson showed his roadster in the rain! 
Canby 6-15-14 001 
Many of the Portland area DROPS (Datsun Roadsters of Puget Sound) folks were also there. Wayne had his RARE 1962 Datsun U320 double-cab pickup at the show. It was a real attention getter!

Good visiting all day long. 6 Roadsters were entered and DROPS Cleaned up with all 3 awards. I think the order, 1-3, was Tim C, John W and Mark? Anderson.
 
Jack K got 3rd in “Early Truck” with his 1964 Datsun Pickup.

Wayne got “best car in the Corral” with his Datsun U320.
 
Ex-DROPS member Alan got first in the “other” category with his Datsun Chinook camper.

Jack K was all smiles for the 400 mile drive. We just changed his differential. yesterday and he was cruising at 65-70. He has not gone that fast in the 40+ years he has owned the 320!
 
We all made the long trip without incident.
