That is one very nicely sorted Roadster!

A few days ago (Sunday, maybe), I was driving south on I-5 around Dana Point, CA, when I saw a double-decker car hauler heading north. Since we were traveling in opposite directions, I only got a glimpse, but definitely saw that there was a white Roadster and a red 510 on the back of the top level. Anyone on here recently buy (or sell) a couple Datsuns?

I was at a great taco truck, on a rare sunny day. Our cars must be similar. Pat

Darker dude? Thought I saw a 2000 badge. Could be mistaken.

Spotted in Boulder, CO today at around 5:30pm.
Looks to be a ‘68 SPL with ‘69 side markers. The exhaust had a nice sound.

Spotted in Waukegan Harbor, Illinois. This spot was posted in another social platform, but I thought I would post it here to see if the owner is a 311s member. Looks like a 68 2000 with a tonneau cover and some missing side trim. Not too many of these here in Chicagoland.
