I'm old but new here

Postby OSGiken510 » 04 Feb 2017 16:40

New member from Oregon, I have a 1971 2 door 510 boxflare car that I've had since 98, I am also the President of the Datsun's northwest club in Portland and organize the Canby car show's, I took over in 2016 after Dave Bothwell and crew put on 10 years of successful shows, I have been part of our club since it's inception so I'm no stranger to dato's and if you've been to the Canby show you may know me from past years as the show car parking guy, I usually wear a shirt that says "I can tell you where to go", can't ever say that without a smerk on my face.

I have always been into cars and racing, it's in my blood and ever since one of my older sisters boyfriend's took me to an autocross in his 510 when I was 11 I was hooked on Datsun's and autocrossing, I went to every race I could with him, I'm not sure who was heart broken more my sister or me when they broke up lol. But it was cemented, I loved small boxy lightweight cars and the 510 fit the bill.

I look forward to being part of the group and if I can answer any question about the 2017 Canby show. Fire away. Just busy planning this years Canby show for all to enjoy. I'll try to get some pic's of my car up soon.

Hello Steven and welcome to The Realm. Your reputation preceeds you!
Because when you spend a silly amount of money on a silly, trivial thing that will help you not one jot, you are demonstrating that you have a soul and a heart and that you are the sort of person who has no time for Which? magazine. – Jeremy Clarkson

Hi Steve,

Great to have you here.

I started a thread earlier this year for a calendar of car shows in 2017. The thread has had very little action, but I'd like to you confirm the details I put down for Canby this year.

Great to have you on the Realm.

Welcome to the Realm Steven. Plenty of old Datsun guys here with far more interest in information content than drama BS. Thanks for all your effort putting Candy together, I hope it lasts another ten years.

Steven, I have always admired your CV half-shafts that were 10+ years ahead of their time. Good stuff.

Welcome Steve,

Nice to see you made it here. Great forum with lots of us older 510 guys.

I am hoping to make it to Canby along with a bunch of other East Coast guys.

Hope to meet you in person.

All the best!
