Havent been active for quite a while but I have been lurking.
I havent done nothing to any of my Datsun's besides driving the old goat daily untill yesterday.
My Halloween was off to a great start until...... BANG! I really dont know what happend all I know is the goat got kilt. I know the upper control arm is smashed like a tin can, the radiator is busted, the core support is screwed and the transmission is busted.
I am not sure if I can save it or not I will have to wait till I get it home from the impound lot and inspect a little closer. If I cant save it I am going to strip whats good and offer parts up for sale so keep an eye on this post as I may have some nice rare unique parts for sale. Wish me luck.

Thanks EZ! I am sore all over got another knott on my head a bruised ankle and my wrist/arm is sore from were I was holding the shift leaver and it broke from the force I put on it when the impact happened.

Now would be a perfect time to build a 510 wagon if I could find one.

Datkimsun have you got a good rad support? If so how much and will you ship?
      To sum it up quickly I pulled out into traffic infront of the lady cause I didnt see her, its as much her fault as mine beings she pulled out from another driveway about 20 yards from were I was pulling out and was throwing the coal to it and never let up till.....BANG!!

Thanks Alleycat

Good to hear nobody got seriously hurt. Accidents do happen but we learn from them. Meantime, while you ponder what to do with your truck's suspension here's an idea from Japan



Better to learn from other peoples mistakes than to make them yourself.-Anonymous
