Old Man. — I love it. I saw it at a house across the street from a buddy of mine and the guy offered it to me for $300. Had to change the water and fuel pumps, some fuel lines, some radiator hoses, and the wheel cylinders. It runs great now. There's still some work that needs to be done (i.e. the bench seat needs to be changed, the timing belt is a little loose, and the steering wheel and doors stick) and some more that I want to do (drop an SR20DET and some cosmetics). I'm looking forward to the adventure.

Pros: Great car.  Reliable as anything.  I bought mine a month ago after sitting in the dry desert for 4 years with fluids and everything.  She started right up.  It's unique.  The front end looks like a beast.  Great gear ratio.

Cons: Not a whole lot of power.  4 speed trans.  Doesn't like waking up in the morning, but once it gets going, it's unstoppable.

Great — This truck is a lot of fun to drive. It has lots of power and is a head turner. Has won several trophies, but it is apart right now and I want to get it back together so I can drive it and have fun. Solid body(rebuilt ground up) and with the 302 Ford gas mileage isn't what it was with the 4 banger, but that is the cost of power. The rear end is a stock Datsun 411, so it is great off the line and I have found the rear end to be darn near bullet proof. Having jumped on it hard several times, and it still keeps on tickin'.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Looks and preformance

Cons: Too much FUN TO DRIVE

Perfect Mini-truck, All Around. — This was the best pickup I ever owned. I sold it to buy a motor for my sports car. Looking back, I should have kept that truck. It never failed to start. I pulled a Nissan Pulsar on a full body trailer down the interstate at 70MPH with it without so much as a stutter. It was fast, fun, and fearless. If you find one for sale, and can afford it, buy it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent all over

Cons: kinda small

Datsun Pick Ups — Really a 1977 620 king cab. All original, with factory air conditioning. L2.0b motor with a 4 speed although I will probably upgrade to a 5 speed. Bought slotted mags (15/7) for it although it has the hubcaps and beauty rings 14 inch wheels right now. It is a beautiful little truck and it is a Datsun.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: datsun

Cons: california emissions

Classic Datsun Truck — Truck has only had one owner, my husband. Fun to drive. We had the body completely worked over, gave it a new paint job, new brakes, new dash cap and stereo plus new upholstery and carpet. Added new tires, a new windshield and read window seal. New radiator and heater core too. Trying to figure out which is cheaper, rebuilding the engine or trying to replace it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good fuel economy.  Simple to work on.  Classic looks.

Cons: The cab is small for someone over six feet tall.  Doesn't have AC
