What a great turn out last night - especially for a Tuesday night! Attending were a number of 510's, a few Z cars and a few roadsters, along with a few BMW's and a 53 Ford Custom lead sled and I saw a late 60's C10 P/U out there, don;t even know who it belonged to...
And there were a number of enthusiasts who dropped by just to say high without their rides. There were many Datsun's lining the block, it was awesome. I've never seen traffic so slow down my street - perfect!

Great chatter between everyone, and some food thrown in. First cars started showing up just after 3pm, I think we packed it in just past 11. There were so many people I actually ran out of grilling material! All the burgers and dogs were gone and I was scrambling to find more - the last few of us, myself included, made due with veggi burgers that were actually pretty good with all the usual fixings. More than 30 people came out, because I had food for 35, and we ran short!

Pictures to follow soon. I didn't take any with my phone, so I'll have to download, convert and resize my Cannon shots at some point today.
Thanks to all of you who came out, the evening was exactly what is was supposed to be, good people meeting around good cars and just chewin' the fat.

What a nice view with all the nice cars!

Your front yard looks great considering what it has been through!

Thanks for putting this on Byron. It was a great evening of chewing the " fat " and chowing down. Nice to see such a large turn out.

Thanks for having all of us over Byron, it was a great turnout. It was nice to meet some new people and look at some nice cars.
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

Absolutely - 5/10 Day 2017 is on!

May 10, 2017 in Maple Ridge BC. See first post - first page for location address.

All Datsun fans are welcome to join in at my place in Maple Ridge. Officially starts at 5:10 - obviously! Drop in when you can. Burgers are on me as usual. Been a great event these past few years.
Datsun Central isn't completed yet, but this Friday may have switched the very first line fed electrons into the building - fingers crossed. Self guided tours at your own risk.

At any rate, I look forward to seeing you there if your local to Vancouver and can drop by. Bench racing a plea that will be had, and a good kick off to the summer driving season.

Weather will play out well for us next week, with 3 dry days leading up to 510 Day!

Going out this weekend to buy a couple boxes of frozen burgers for Wednesday, and some pop. Deck's been pressure washed, and the garden train set up in the front :-) I even washed the Bronze in preparation - I'm ready for 510 Day.

So who's coming?
