Great thread, I love seeing what everyone has especially from other manufacturers. Datsuns are excellent, though there are so many outstanding vintage cars from other marques. Here's what I have in the herd so far, always looking for more. As a matter of fact, if anyone has a nice Falcon Sprint, factory 4 speed car with OM paint they want to move on let me know; cash buyer! :D

Tom: Mario at VSR in NH has an 84 Euro M6 for sale for $8,500. Should I tell him you will be calling?

I've shared most of these cars in other threads before, but there is one more addition to the garage this summer: 2012 McLaren MP4-12C. I've had a chance to track it a couple times now...

You really can't say no to this shot.

The roadster...

And the project... oh boy... '59 Alfa Romeo 101.02 Giulietta Sprint. (Euro spec)

This one is going to take some time. The nose job required to make the body right is beyond my abilities and is not going to be cheap. Aside from that, the car is nearly rust free, and totally straight. Its all there, but the interior is totally destroyed, the paint is falling off, but revealing bright shiny metal below it. It has a lot of potential, but I need to either get a second job or win the lottery to get things moving. Heck, if I could get the bodywork done, I'd drive it as is from time to time. Originally a German spec car and a very early 101 series.

Sorry, I find modern engine swaps revolting. Keep your G, R, or U series in your Roadster!

While not as impressive as others. These are old pictures. I guess I'm not a Herb Tarlek type since other than these I only have accidental photos of my own cars.

The wagon from my avatar pic. A picture of my free motorcycle before it was finished. I had to see what my freshly painted parts looked like on the bike. Last but not least is my freshly painted free canoe in a colour easily seen from a rescue helicopter. It doesn't live in the garage though. I quickly found out that there's no such thing as a free motorcycle or canoe. The daily driver is nothing special and most of the roadster is in the basement.

71 510 wagon sweet, next mod is KA24 conversion with 5spd.

More parts than any sane person should have.

Okay, my turn I suppose! :)

Every garage needs a truck.... so here is my parts collector vehicle. This is my first truck. In fact, the purchase of the roadster sort of dictated I have entered the truck portion of my life. With two classics in the garage, no way I am parking a nice sports car outside... and with visions of doing far more vintage rallies (I got the bug after doing the Texas 1000 in my Z in 2012) I want a tow vehicle.
Image

My first project car was my Z. I got it in 2008, and have replaced/rebuild/refurbished darn near every single mechancial thing on it.
