Internet Movie Cars Database is an interesting way to see vintage Datsuns back in the day. I wonder what the story was with this Roadster? A Mary Kay car? From a TV episode of Hawaii Five-O that aired 24 September 1969.
It’s a big shout out to Joe E, Ted and Dave F who all were instrumental in bringing up “baby” to speed, literally. Over the weekend, Joe and Ted did a massive roadster rear end swap to my ’64 pu rear end. WHAT A CHANGE. I don’t have to be in the slow lane doing 50 -53 mph. I can easily cruise at 60 mph all the way up to 70 mph.
On Sunday I even drove it over 400 miles to Canby, Or. The most miles I put on it in 30 years. I even kept up with Ted and Don A. I won 3rd place in my division after a late arrrival and after the voting started.
I received a number of “looks” and thumbs up on the freeway during the trip which I haven’t received on the freeway since the speed limit was 55mph. I can honestly say “trucking is fun again”. A big shout out to all NWDE members throughout the years who gave me support, advice and parts to make this happen.
All I can say is: KEEP ON TRUCKING!
