It was "Best of Show." Don't know who owns it, but I think I heard that Petterson in Chico restored it.

Sid, I wanted to spend more time with this one. I did snap a pic showing the left side door:

The ash tray that I have seen photos of appears to be the same as I have seen on the back from the front passenger seat on 410/411 sedans. On the Japanese market roadsters that I've seen photos of, it was mounted almost centered on the door panel. I don't know if it was an add on, and optional part or whatever. That's why I asked.

Looks like it was a great show! So much fun to get the family together. I was there for the very first one, along with my parents in their minivan... their only experience of a Datsun meet, and not anything near what you all do today. Looking forward to Shasta again when the weather is more conducive to travel for my bikini topped car. Congrats to all for a successful and clearly fun show!

Here are a few of the photos I took at this year's event.

First a few from the meet 'n' greet at the Mendenhall Museum:

And I really like this dash badge on the white 1200 pickup that was there:
