Default Here for the threading

new forum member here, been a car guy for at least 10 years now. Edmonton resident.
Currently have a 1977 Datsun 280z and a '05 4Runner V8. Got the Datsun last spring, it will be a never ending work in progress. Its up to driver status though, managed to put around 5,000 miles on it last season.
Looking to do suspension and wheels on the Datsun this year, and hoping to get it out to the track to throw it around a bit this summer.

Nice car! Ever think about a set of fender flares? They seem to suit the cars really well.
