Whats with the declining interest in the Datto 1200?
I use to visit this forum often but the content just seems to be on the wane.
Or is it just me ?

Definitely is declining. Where has ddgonzal gone? He used to post a lot of content which kept it interesting.

I think there are several things going on.

Most questions have been answered before, e.g gone full circle.

The usual contributors are older these days and typically have moved on from datsuns to other things such as family or other interests.

Datsuns could be considered no longer to be a cheap car to modify or buy. There value has accrued quite a bit in the past 5 years...

I quite rarely post these days as the tech wiki usually holds the info Iím looking for....

Social media has killed forums across the board

Very true Benny but after saying that they are still out there and being used.
I am as guilty as anyone as far as not posting enough so next race meeting.....
Unfortunately for us all the values have gone crazy and the cheap, fun days are over well and truly and I must admit the scepter of a big smash and having to find a new shell constantly hangs over me every time I take the SSS out to a race meeting but at the end of the day what on earth is the point of owning it unless its being used?
There certainly are still a few being rebuilt over here in NZ and some really nice bits being produced for the A series such as alloy rocker covers.
I guess we all have to make a conscious effort to post some more to keep this very special site alive.

I can't help thinking the last blowup on 'off topic' has damaged peoples confidence in the site. I do have a couple of things on the go but getting side tracked on home projects. Hopefully I will get my head back in the game soon

I still regularly look at the forum here, but I'm just emerging from the other end of buying a house and having two kids. Finaly got the finances under control and am starting to spend money on the dattos again. I have a good wife who tolerates and I now have 4 dattos.

But yes, some for sale online are asking crazy prices. Who would buy a 120y for $9000?

Certainly has gone downhill Ziggy !!
I still come to have a browse most days but the content doesn't arouse me .
Bring back the squabbles about emblem colours and some of the characters that knew what they were talking about !!
