Rust in pieces :(

Always sad to see classics in such a poor state.

The old Six is back on the road

My old Datsun Super Six is now back on the road. Dean sent me a txt to let me know it had passed inspection.

Here's a few more recent photos.






Update: CSP311 Number 359

This car is now up on ebay for a more reasonable starting price.
I'd estimate that it will sell for between $8000 to $10,000 based on its condition, and the sale prices of other CSP311's in similar condition.

Bye Bye Super 6

The Super 6 has just driven away on the back of a trailer. The new owner, Dean is going to fix it up and turn it into a weekend cruiser.

Unfortunately circumstances never allowed me to do anything to it. It's time for me to sell off the other cars and get back to the 3 cars I originally intended to restore. Though, when I'll be able to start on them I don't know. They are looking like retirement projects, and that's a long way off.

At least I saved it from going to the crusher. Hopefully Dean will get it up and running.
