Author’s Cars; KPB310

August 31, 2010

Firstly, I apologise for the lack of updates, I had a lot of time invested in trying to get a job at the local Honda dealership.  Unfortunately after two interviews they found another more worthy of the position.  Both depressing and annoying but that’s how things roll.  Speaking of things that roll though.  A car recently came up for sale on local auction site,  the interesting thing about this car being for sale on trademe was mostly the price that the reserve was set at given that several months prior the owner had tried to sell it on the Datsun forums with little luck because of the (what I would call) exorbitant price.  I made contact back then (Dec. 2009) and was told a price several hundred over and above what it was bought for and was essentially denied the chance to look over it.  I guess occasionally time passing can be beneficial however as now once my brother has finished using it for daily duties whilst his VB110 is in the panelshop, this little beasty will come into my possession;

This was taken just as we got it, I’ve already removed the side mouldings and polished the sides (it was too sunny (OHPUN!) and bright to polish the top surfaces that particular day.  I’ll get onto them at some stage though.  So it needs that finished off and some different wheels and a healthy but not ridiculous dose of slam.  I wanna be like Rob, eg;

All in due course.  Priority for me is still to sell the H230 and use that money to fix the C110.
