Just when your are managing OK life taps you on the shoulder and says "Hey, f@%k you".

Might have to sell all my Datsuns  :'(


I really hope not, you've got some really unique cars that are only going to go up in value. Hang onto them if you can!

Today I learned not to post - what I find ironically humorous - photos on a Datsun page on the Book of Faces.
The members lost their minds at this photo & called me an idiot.

Yes plenty of experts on bookface. :).

 

@Lurch - How on earth did you manage to break those? New motor?

Someone previously had incorrectly double roll-pinned the forks, which no amount of hitting with the pin punch would make them move. It was quicker & easier to cut the rails and replace them with spare rails & forks.

FB kids did not understand / comprehend this...

How were they 'incorrectly' double roll pinned?

Previous assembler used two metric roll pins, and rammed the living heck on the smaller one to make it fit.
The second one is a very tight fit.

Big engine start up!

I reckon the Rolls Royce Merlin V12 aero engine, 27 litre capacity, would have blown the old guys eardrums out when it first fired up!
Or maybe he's already deaf so it didn't matter!!
It's the 5th clip in.
