Thanks! -Jensen Gordon and Troop 251

Hello Jensen! For some reason the pictures didn't go through. Would love to see what you're planning to bring to the challenge and hear what still needs to be addressed!

Jensen, It looks like the photos need to be hosted on another website. I created a photobucket account and uploaded a few before photos of this diamond in the rough. I'll give you the account details next time you guys come to work on the car.

Something doesn't seem to be working right with these photos. Lets try posting the url directly. Datsun pics

I like the engine cooling mods.

The intake mod is better. . .some sort of u shaped downdraft manifold tig welded to the original side draft manifolds. But don't worry the mod was fixed by removing the engine
