Hi from the PNW
Hello peeps,

Originally from San Diego, now living far north in the PNW, been a long time fan of the D21. Buddy of mine had one right after high school, slammed it till it shot sparks for yards. I was street racing my 240z at the time, and knew Jim Wolf as a small town neighbor.

Grandfather heard me blather on and on about the killer Hardbody trucks and how bad I wanted one, so he bought one for himself new in 1992: white with that burgundy all over interior. I got nothing, till he died a little over a year ago after a long drawn out war with Alzheimer's... leaving me his 92 base model KingCab D21 with a 2.4 KA24E & an auto:disagree: ... He loved that truck. It was literally the only thing he knew and continued to remember through all his years battling that horrible disease.

My grandfather, Poppy, was the dad I never had. We had a unique connection through his beloved truck, a truck that isn't worth much to most but is priceless to me... sooo, I'm going to do what any certified organic fanatic would do in a situation like this: convert what was a prefect reflection of my grandfather into a more current reflection of his grandson, me, a hard core SpeedFreak.

I'm here to study, to learn, to network with others and to make friends along the way. I only have time for sincere, genuine, good people... NO TIME for DRAMA, so please feel free to connect with me if you would like.

I look forward to getting to know those who choose to engage.

welcome to IN. funny how these trucks have so much emotional attachment tied to them. just keep that truck out of the snow and it will last forever. rust is the number one killer of these trucks. nissan did not do a thing for prevention. they will literally rot in half.

Thnx! It is funny, but kinda cool in a way too. He babied the truck so there's no rust anywhere (spent most of its life in San Diego), and WA doesn't really seem to use salt up where I am located. We don't get a whole lot of snow here either, since we are right on the water. As soon as it is feasible, I will also invest in a good rust prevention treatment.

It's nice to meet you... thnx for saying "hi!"

Yeah, seen the liner approach and it does usually work, probably cheaper than several cans of flex seal, tho that's not a bad idea either. Thnx!
