Default My new back burner datsun

Picked this up today. I've been wanting this truck for about 5 years and my wife was so happy about getting the 300zx that she called and negotiated a deal on the 521 to surprise me. It's pretty rough but seems to be complete. I took some crappy pics, but once I make it where it will actually ROLL, I'm gonna pressure wash the hell out of it and get some good pics.

If it were original paint I'd try to clean it up and leave it, but it was spray bombed and apparently sanded with a cinder block beforehand so I can't leave it like that.
