I'm thinking about getting one.
But if I do... I will need seat covers and floor matts. Or quit smoking.
I'm always burning holes and marks into stuff.

Old Datsun
Maybe a station wagon.
Maybe not (resale value ya'know)

What's your dream car?

Come to think of it I may not need the seat covers or floor matts. Heck... might not even need soap or wax or a wash bucket.

What if I get a cool As classic car with a hot motor, nice handling, grippy breaks etc but has that drove hard put away wet n sloppy look to it?

Ya'know... Like a sleeper.

I always had a thing for rattish type rides anyways.

Who needs shine?
It just helps create stress anyways.

This sorta sucks.

Shopping for a Datsun 510 yesterday.
I found one. Looks like a hot rod sleeper/rat style.
All the go,stop,corner fast stuff but not much in the looks department. Solid rust free though. Lots of extra parts. Newer souped up engine, twin carbs, more modern 5 speed, etc etc.
Did I say lots of extra parts?

Dude is motivated.
Leaving the country.
Already came down from $7000 to $5100
(I have him down to $4700 w/out even trying hard yet)
Deeper discount after PPI?
Lets hope.

Well anyways...
(here comes the sucky part)
Dude also has a Datsun 280Z that he needs to sell.
Not just any Datsun 280Z. This one had a crate screaming SB Chevy 350ci WELL done swap in that bad boy.

Why not buy two cars from same motivated seller?
REAL deep discount?
Buy One Get One (nearly free)?

Nope... just my luck.
Dude sold the 280Z

What in tarnation is a RWD NEO VVL?

Byron Center, MI

#6 Dec 30, 2012
RWD = Rear Wheel Drive
NEO = Nissan Ecology Oriented
VVL = Variable Valve Lift

It is an engine made by Nissan based on the SR type power plant in a 1.6 L, 1.8 L, or 2.0 L straight-4 cylinder, 4-stroke internal combustion gasoline engine. It has aluminum heads and aluminum block with steel sleeves.

The engine is used mainly in import tuners for drifting and high performance street use and there are many after market goodies for the platform.

It can be fuel injected with or without turbo boost.

Specification codes are:

SR - Engine Code
20 - 2.0 Litres
D - Dual Overhead Cam
E - Multi-port Fuel Injection
e - SR20DE LEV-version
RR - Roller rocker motor

The basic Nissan motor has been around for quite a while, actually since 1997.

I forgot to add on the Specification Codes:

E = Electronic Multi-port Fuel Injection


T = Turbocharged

I have a Nissan with the CVT- not bad for a 4CYL in a body that belongs to a 6- but it lacks a little guts sometimes. Overall, love the car.

I would love to but I don't think I'll be getting the one with the neo vvt thingy.
Not yet anyways.
It's about 4 grand over my budget.
Maybe next time?

I don't want to get my hopes up... but...
I think I may need those seat covers and floor mats after all.

The one I'm looking at is sweeeet.
And very stock. And shiny.
And resalable?

fingers crossed

Finger is on trigger.
Just need to arrange a PPI and after I get a thumbs-up from the mechanic... we have a go.
I'm pumped.

Next hurdle/s...
payment and shipping.

Any body here ever buy a car (or really large thing) across the country?

Will do George.

I'm not sure but I'm hoping that this one could be just the starter 510. If things go well my next one might have one of them there RWD NEO VVL engines in it. And all the go/stop/corner fast doodads.

This one is just for cutting my teeth and puttin' round with.

The next one... That could be the death trap.
