New guy looking to restore a Datsun

Postby NeedaDatsun » Mon Jan 04, 2016 8:44 pm

Hi everyone I'm from the Midwest I've been into Nissans and Datsuns since I was young. I've only had the chance to own a Sentra SE-R Spec V(sold). I have some money set aside for a project and I want a Datsun. I'd prefer a 510 or an old Z of some sort. I'm willing to start with a roller or just one that has been sitting around collecting rust. If anyone around me has any leads on some cars let me know so I can become a contributing member of this community!! hahaha. Thanks!!

Welcome to NICO. Good luck with search in the midwest. They are around, but pretty rusty. Best to search the sunshine states on Craigslist. Its also easier to find 240Z parts than 510 stuff. That will help with restoration.
