Re: Jessie's 1976 120y

Would hate to think how many hours you have put into this restoration
Guess if a body shop did the work you would be looking at $10,000 by now
Its a credit to you
Hope to see the finished project

Re: Free 91 fuel ... but is it worth it?

In the Datsun use the higher octane fuel
I got 44 miles per gallon from Wellington and return to the Taupo event recently
Use BP or Shell
Keep away from Mobil or Caltex because of the additives

Re: Datsun 1200 A12 discharging water out overlow

Just returned from Taupo Sunday night and the system operated perfectly
Two fellow Datsun owners over the days events in discussion mentioned their cars discharged out the overflow on stopping the engine
This small modification is well worth the effort

Yes for a couple of stickers
Could I suggest approaching your local Lions Club or Rotary Club as a fund raiser for them to provide a Dinner as they would have a venue

Try Holiday Accomodation on Trademe
We rented a House for $120.00 per night with garage 5 minutes from central Town
Better value than motels

Re: Braasy's Datsun 1200 (B110) 4 Door Sedan

Keep it totally original to hold its value
If you must paint it use a factory original colour
A friend of mine sold one the same colour in Wellington for $20,000 recently
Looks a mint little car
