Hey all!
I am getting a hand me down truck from my Grandfather this week.
I've had lots of cars ranging from 83 to 98 but never a pickup and
never a datsun so I am pretty excited! I've been eyeing his 520 for
as long as I can remember!

The first thing I want to do is clutch, tune up etc as I like to do things myself 
on my cars. Is there anything I should look for? As of right now I know its a 520 
I know its yellow and I know its a Datsun. I will update when I get it with
ALL the information. But things to look for? Things of note that go wrong with
these trucks?

In the future I would like to do an engine swap, maybe? ha I've done plenty in my lifetime and 
just love doing it. I do not know much about the stock engine though so maybe keep it
and make it puuuurrr. We shall see? 

One thing that bugs the hell out of me is when people bag these things with super huge rims.
... dumb. Just dumb.
I've owned super low cars but they were volkswagons and cars, Not super cool trucks.
ALright well happy to be here! This is the first forum I tried on this truck, 
Hopefully it is a good one!

Pictures will come later this week!

No I am afraid I do not.
 I asked my Grandmother but all she could tell me it is a pickup. ha
It is a 2 hour drive away from my home so I am kind of nervous about
driving it all the way home. Thinking about an hour stop for meal break check
everything out etc.
I'll obviously check all the liquids, lights, tires, breaks etc before leaving as well
as have someone drive behind me.
Its been a couple years since I've had a car to work on. 
Super excited!

I pick her up a week from this Saturday. The car is about 2 hours away or a bit over. So I've been trying to line someone up to take me and drive behind me and a day that my Grandmother would be there. Been quite a task! haha  but 9 days and counting!
