Default Hey if you happen to see the most beautiful girl...

I want her back...

I Think she's still local (Bremerton) but if you ever see her, I'd give up body parts to get her back.
(The thread title is a song title of old song from the 70's just like the car)

But you can't wind that up to 12,000 rpm! L20 is a good motor but....the rotory with that light car, man....literally could do 135-150 with that if the fenders did not fly off

I thought it was Datsun 610 for a minute. Those are better than the B210's. The 210's have a bad habit of the rear end flying off corners at higher speeds. The 610 was way better at not doing that, and had more solid suspension and brakes.

I sold my 210 two weeks after I bought it after it almost slid me into a guard rail. The 610 my friends called the Orange Julius. You can guess why. I dropped the L-20B into it with a Weber carb setup and it went like a bat out of hell. I wish I had that one back, too.

The Good Old Datsun days. Easy motor swaps, quickie power. Sometimes I really miss it. When my friend Ronnie and I pulled that L-16 from the 610 and dropped in the new L-20B, it only took us a cherry picker and 90 minutes from start to end and test driving. Now, that's fun.
