So I'm rapidly approaching the 35th year of ownership of the Pokey and I've been on this site nearly for 17 years. I also know at there are folks who've probably owned their cars even longer.

So out of curiosity how long have you owned your car?

Red Coupe started off the collection nearly 30 years ago
Blue Ute 10 years ago
Green Sedan (Kermit) 5 years ago

Coupe's almost ready to go for a roadworthy again

This one, about 14 years. Which begs the question, when did you first get a 1200?
I bought my first one September 1974.

A high school buddy bought our car in 1983, we bought it the following year. I've purchased 3 parts cars over the years. I probably should have kept at least one as I've got enough parts to have a fun street car.

I've owned the original Defect (120Y) and what was the parts car, (now The Defect III) since 2001, which is 18 years, and it will be getting rebuilt again soon, as the rust in the roof is getting to the point where if I don't do anything, I'm not going to have a car... I could look for another shell, but finding a better shell isn't that easy, and I need to learn how to weld... So farm hack or road car, it'll need some love spent on it...

I've had my car since 1999 so that makes 20 years. Best purchase ever. $200.
I've had B210's, 210's and 510's. All sold and gone along with BMW's and Volkswagens.
This one I won't sell.
Original A12 is still on a stand in my garage. The A14's, A15's and Z24 motors all gone. The KA24DR motor is here to stay. I've even collected extra motors for future use. 🙂
No better place for this car to be than on the Drag Strip!! 👍

I started out on the Yahoo Datsun 1200 site in 1999 and made the #37 member spot when it's switched to the new current site.
Only current frequent active member older than me is #1 Pfbranco who started this website.
Hats off to him. 👍

My current 1200 is my third.
I bought it in 2001 to replace my 2nd 1200 which was t-boned. I bought that in 1991.
Car is sitting in garage waiting for engine rebuild.

Not as active on the site anymore. I still check the front page almost daily and read whats interesting.
