You can really get an idea of the scale of the old Datsun, when it's sitting next to a Titan...

Haha that thing is tiny! It looks sweet though. I love the chrome eyelids. What are the two things on the top side of either side of the bed?

They're like spring-loaded hooks that lie flat against the bed until you pull them out.... Probably added by the previous owner.

Dude, I've taken a crap bigger than you... How do you not fit?

Besides, you drive an MG and a Miata.

I'm gonna get you one of these for Christmas:

I took those pics Monday, before the storm hit.

We got hammered with rain... Bex and I were up all night Wednesday, finally got to bed at like 8 am... Then out fighting the flood all day Thursday until 10 pm last night. Got a bit of a reprieve today, hoping for a quiet night.

This I resent lol. The key word to my statement was "comfortably". They're just not a comfortable vehicle though I admittedly fit fine. I would think it'd be even less comfortable for a tall, lanky, goofy(etc) ------ like you lol.

FTFY.

Actually, after thinking on this issue, I figured out why you'd think the 320 is "cramped" - You were working on an L320. I have an NL320. The NL (unibody) has about 6" longer cab than the L320, as evidenced by the longer doors.

So, I can see why you'd feel like it's smaller.

Then again, you are like a foot shorter than me, so I'm still confused.
