I was heading for Brisbane & it was late Monday morning on the 7th of December 1981 A crack had developed around the hood / bonnet latch, so i stopped in Tamworth at a panel shop to get it fixed. Taking it off took only a few minutes, but it took them 2 hours to weld a 3" crack. I got bored, & you get inflicted with a picture

I forgot to mention, note the factory sports option windscreen wiper blades. They have an aerofoil shaped piece across the blade area. The wiper arms are sports option too. They have a stronger spring to hold the blade on the screen.

Speaking of windscreens, this one was made to order by NM windscreens [now defunct]. It is laminated, with a full soft tint & a darker tinted band. This was the second one of three. They were only about $10 to $20 more than a stock laminated one.

I couldn't help myself. The original Datsun dealer flag from my stepfathers dealership [D & G motors in Blacktown] was used to adorn the back seat.
Show your pride!

Yes, i still have it, but it's not a towel, it's a full sized flag, complete with metal fittings & it's currently draped across the roof of my 1000 coupe.

At this stage, the engine was fairly new & only 3mm oversize in the bore. I eventually wore it out & bored it again. It's now worn out again. I'm just a highway cruisin junkie. Lurve that big big mileage.

This thing was the best highway cruiser i have ever owned. It wasn't the fastest thing around. but it's average speed across a given [preferably long] journey was right up there with the best of them.

This engine is the one that will be rebuilt [yet again] for my 1000 coupe, but this time with another bore job & an A14 crank.

The back seat in my 1200 needs recovering. This gives me the great idea! Any ideas where I can find material printed like that?

By the way, the car looks nice too.

What does a French flag look like? I know that they are into red white & blue, so maybee this could become a basis for a replica. With my luck, the tri-colour will have vertical stripes.

My flag is a fairly light one [flags come graded by weight for diferent wind conditions] & the colours & lettering are just printed onto it.

Thanks for the compliment.

hey Dodge, you are the man, I was thinking about that towel or flag in your rear seat too, since it was posted already(remark) i just listen, but, you got it, the French flag....a Datsun banner, excelent!!!

I will get a French flag, paint the Datsun Words on it, and fly it at home, also coool for a garage door, window curtain....cool idea.
