Howdy all!

I'm new to the group and hope I'm abiding by the rules...

Are there any Washington State Datsun fans that belong to the club?

I live on the Eastern side of the state and would like to meet and talk with people who have more skill and knowledge than I have...

I've got a '72 LB110 that's modified quite a bit, but I'd like to up the motor to maybe a V6? I'd like to post a pic of the little critter, but I don't know how, and I don't know if it's even allowed.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

Welcome! Several of us here live in Wa State, mostly in the Seattle (western) side of the state.

> I've got a '72 LB110 that's modified quite a bit

Share a photo with us -- if you have a picture on a web site already, you can include a link to the image in a post (or in the reply to this message). If you convert it to a small jpeg image it won't take too long to download. For example: http://communities.msn.com/davidsdatt ... ction=ShowPhoto&PhotoID=1

Here's a project report: Datsuns.com 1200-V6 swap

On the other hand, the extra weight of a V6 conflicts with one of the best things about the 1200: low weight. A Nissan CA18T or SR20 is a popular choice, with more hp than the V6 while keeping weight low. Both engines are available from engine importers.

Cool! Thanks David!!

I get over to the coast at least once every two months or so...my folks still live over there...I'll have to see if I can meet with you guys if you have a meeting or informal get-together.

I'll try to figure out how to attach a pic of the Guacamobile....or better yet, "The Striped-Avocado!

(After looking around for some way to post a pic of it, I guess I'll have to create a web-page with a pic of it and then link the URL...if you know of a different way, let me know!)

I saved the two links you posted and I will definitely check them out.

Thanks again for replying and I hope to talk to you later!

That's a true guacamole-mobile. Did you put the fender flares on yourself? I've never seen a 1200 with Group-B style flares before, it is quite impressive. What size tires fit under there?

Yes you have to do that, but you can insert the pic in your post using the "IMG" button.
Like this.

I'm still trying to install with a new image gallery for the club, you can see some tests at the club's test site .

But the gallery still has some bugs.

Sadly, no, I did not do the work myself.

I first saw the car in 1987 and it was primer-grey and I thought, "Man! That is cool! What the heck is it?" The next time I saw it was in 1992 when I bought it and it was now the infamous two shades of green.

The work was done by a design engineer and the fenders are all metal. No fiberglass at all.

The tires that are on it are P235 50R 13's. The wheels were custom made, so I'm thinking about tinkering with that a little.

I'm thinking about a bright canary yellow for a paint job with black highlights on the intakes....what do y'all think for a color?

Have a great one,

Greg

I'm not in Washington anymore, but I used to live over on the West Side also, in Puyallup. My dad and I had several 1200's while we lived there, but now we only have 3 all together. I had one for a while that got me through college and ended up selling it just before I left WA last summer. It's off-white with slotted mags, a guy on McChord AFB bought it from me, so If you see it driving around it used to be mine!! I was able to get a really nice one in California before I left WA, it only had 69,000 miles on it...the interior is the best I've ever seen on a 1200, and the body needs a few spots fixed to be perfect, but it's not bad. There's a guy up in Lynnwood that I met up with once who has a hopped up 1200 sedan, he's part of the club too, but I haven't seen him on for a while. He just got his painted canary yellow w/black racing stripes. He's got a rebuilt A15 w/dual Weber DGV's, cam, 5 speed. I've seen quite a few 1200's running around WA when I lived there, but here in Texas I have only seen two at a Datsun car show last October. What all has been done to the engine in that green/white car? I'm getting ready to swap out my GX induction for a pair of 40mm DCOE's so we'll see how that goes. Anyways, welcome to the club!
