• These little ladies have a lot of potential with updates and improvements of all shapes and sizes from the newer Datsun lineup. This one looks pretty tired but nice to see so much still in place and not busted.

  • Oh Vince….

    The only way you're going to tour "through tree-lined roads in full fall foliage" this year in this particular Lady is if you load her on the back of a trailer and your wife drives the tow car…

    Somewhere around 50 years old, something weird and magical happens to car guys… you realize you have less time, and more money (not a lot more money, to be sure, but, still…).

    Suddenly, cars that have all their parts and are actually running start to have much more appeal.

    Even if they *do* cost twice as much.


    An Old Fart (aka Stan)

    PS Hey, maybe there's an idea for a new DT feature/section: Old Farts With More Money Than Time…

  • You pay for the provenance of buying from an elite collector. Some interesting items conserved by a naturalist auto collector.

    The artist probably spent many months getting the tires on the Fairlady to reflect the tortured soul of a fair lady relegated to the dusty side yard mocking her very name. The beautiful RR sits awaiting a concourse restoration befitting just how coveted this vintage Roller is. But is it indeed a roller?

  • Responding as the new owner (as of today) and come this weekend she will be off to her new forever home. 2nd move shes had to make in the last 2 months +/- given at the time of this distress call she had been claimed and was in transit from the greater Tucson AZ area to where I found her on yet another Craigslist ad but within Central Phoenix this time. She was not without high aspiration during her last 2 month hiatus in the greater Phoenix valley but none were acted on and she sit still again tonight on those very same shredded tires. I will save the visions of her near future so as not to jinx any debut but rest assured she will be in good hands and receive a treatment an fairlady should…and then some.
