Ok then!

Im Josh, 21, and am an employee of Toyota In Alexandra, Central otago. I sit at Computers all day, on the phone, or delivering people, parts and Accessories.

Prior to that I was a restoration Panel beater, and most other aspects of high-end classic resto. That job was boss, got paid awesome, and then had a breakdown. Got job back half a year later and got made redundant, so moved back south.

I attended College with Aaron, the Cedric collector, and would like to say i got him into Dattos/created a monster.

Was most improved student in CPIT Entrance to motor body trades course.

When Im not at work im chillaxin in my rental house, drinking or pissing about in my garage. Ive never really got anything good to do, but alot of motivation.

Im a jew, Id rather spend my money on Cars so i often sit in the dark and cold hahaha.

I only listen to solid gold on the radio, i cant get enough of the bygone eras i missed out on.

I often wear op-shop suits.

Recovering alchie and addict, bipolar also.

Like Butter chicken a whole bunch.

Hold several english merits.

I collect car magazines, Zippo lighters, anything thay could be of use in the future etc.

At 15 I bought a mk2 Escort, painted it lime green, Dad and I put a 2L, 5-speed, and shortened cortina diff in it, sold it for 4k and bought a mk1 Escort 2dr for $100. Also had a parts mk2, a mk1 2dr shell, mk1 cortina w/ Caged shell, since bought a mk2 road car, painted it in 2 tone brown lace and slammed it out, had an 82 laurel medalist i blew up and threw away, An XE falcon hearse, mongrel beast on 12 slots, ruined it and sold it, started building a 1968 Mazda Bongo van, extensive rust, and a 12a J port engine. Sold un-finished when i got the Cortina wagon.
I have a shit corona wagon too, but cant sell it.

Always been into old cars more than anything else in the world, to my detriment at times. brother and Dad both have classics, and have had since i was on solid food.

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

alright then,
im Brendan, 25, and i have long term datsun issues.
im a qualified but pretty shit mechanic who works at the local holdumb dealership, fixing special cars for special people.
i got into datsuns when i was 19, buying a pair of rough 1600s for a project, then swapping my kp61 starlet daily for a 73 180b sedan with a poked radiator.
since then ive been slowly progressing through the datsun model range, but have come to a point where im happy with my collection.
i also have a datsun collection of 12 inch hubcaps, magazine adds, keyrings, and model kitsets.
my storage shed is my sanctuary, but its highly undershelved, and overstocked.

when taking a break from datsuns, i enjoy the odd drum n bass gig with some mind alteration.

future plans are to finish my datsuns, move to the datsun capital, find a more enjoyable career, find a datsun wife!
