Datsun Driving Canby Fun is the largest Nissan-Datsun meet in the United States, with over 200 vehicles showing. In the Oregon Summer. Canby is in June, Blue Lake in August. This is a more immersive event than Blue Lake, it is a two day experience.

June 11th and 12th, 2005: the 21st NW Datsun meet, when the Blue Lake meet split and Datsuns NW moved it to June. 2005 was the first time the meet was held in Canby, Oregon.

Previously the Bluelake Meet
Now held at the Clackamas County Fairgrounds

Well that was fun! Not quite as many cars this year (maybe 150 Datsuns? And only eight 1200s, compared to 10 last year), but maybe it was because of the change of location.

After the 1st day of the Datsun swap meet and hanging out, most people went somewhere else for the night. A few of us camped out along one side of the field.

After 20 years, we've outgrown Blue Lake....The annual Datsun/Nissan Show and Shine has grown so much that Blue Lake Park is now too small to host the event.

We decided to move the event to the fairgrounds in Canby because, in addition being a much larger area,it also has the following benefits:

- The area can be secured so it is not open to the general public as it was at Blue Lake Park. Only those who purchase admission will be allowed in the area.

- There is a specific area for the swap meet

- Overnight camping and RV hookups are available

- On-site concessions offer great food, including breakfasts both days

- A special car washing area for registered show cars

They had a bit of a "swap meet" this year in Canby. Actually there were only a few vendors, but still some good parts. Rod the Parts Guy had this rear clip ... it's from the Cal State Hayward college electric Datsun
