Winter

By corndog64

Winter is here.
The Datsun sleeps in its 1920's vintage garage. I plan to pull the engine soon and replace it with a rebuilt L28 I picked up over the summer. I'll try to re-jet the Dellorto carbs too. They were running so rich last summer that I was pouring raw gas out the tailpipe!
See ya' in the Springtime!

UPDATE

By corndog64

Ran a best of 15.5 last Saturday. Wow! what an improvement after just taking out the pass. seat, air cleaners and reducing rear tires to 25psi. Unfortunately, @ 85mph the front was shaking so bad I thought the dash was going to break loose and fall into my lap... New front tires are on order for next time!

Damage

By corndog64

DAMN! all the rain created a puddle at the entrance to my drive way. As I was pulling the Datsun out onto the street, the airdam dipped into the puddle - actually a large pothole. The lip caught on the edge of the pavement and ripped the whole airdam - as well as the lower 1/4's of my fiberglass fenders - clear off! Needless to say, I'm pissed!

Repaired

By corndog64

I had my first experience with fiberglass repair today. I attempted to repair the front fenders so I could hang my airdam again. The results were real ugly, but it seems to be holding!

14's!

Went to Martin/131 Dragway last night...

Martin US-131 Dragway

By corndog64

I took the car up to Martin 131 Dragway for the first time this week. I eventually ran a 16.1 @ 81mph. I know breaking into the 15's is possible!
