Jeffs Photo OP Datsun driven by Randy Parker. Looks like a run in Smurffville. ;D

The body is just about finished with its new paint and should be ready for the Portland Roadster show in April. I will be ALMOST as nice as the Warrior.

 Seriously, Jeffs car is immaculate and will be the Gold Standard for our group and any other. Oh and it can run also. Randy took the points Championship in the NW BB/FC's first year.

Spokane 2009 Jeff Dykes,..x Forest Lablanc/ x somehow related Densham body




Densham's Datsun burned up, Grose, and Collins Datsun's were destroyed in crashes. The Datsun curse.

We got our Datsun Z from Iverson right after Densham recieved the first ones, His wife had the Datsun for the mold (so the story went) so he was entitled to the first ones... Ours laid around the yard for years until Forrest LeBlanc wanted to join cifca. Still had all the cutouts when Jeff dykes Bought it out of the rafters from Forrest, a couple of years ago...

What has happened to all the over-center jacks?

they gave way to Pro Jacks.....

I had a fancy chromed one that came with my Arrow..I stupidly gave it away with that car when I sold it.
was a one of/ design with wheels on it..it didn't pull the car forward needing 2 guys to lean on it,but raised the car and slid under at the same time..I thought it only would work with that car..now I want it back!!
