Hey,

I'm Jonathon, I'm 20 and from Penrith. I'm an apprentice Flexographic Printer.

My first datto was a 1977 C210 Skyline Coupe (which is now for sale.. PM me if you're interested.)

I now have a R31 GTS1 (aussie version) which has a RB20DET now. with 2.6 rods and 2.5 crank. forged pistons. T04E. all the goodies.

Hopefully i'll have some cash to buy a datto project once i sell the c210. i want something small and fun again.

maybe a 120y

My first car ever is my current 1600 which i got on my 18th birthday, what a present that was it did have a L20 in it with a lil bit of work done to it but ive decided to upgrade and put an sr20det in it, it now has licence plates BURNT16 orange background with white letters, looking to respray it a burnt orange possibley with a purple metallic through it

Anyway I work as a scientific and industrial instrument maker/repairer have been for almost 3 years now mainly working on pressure systems, TIG welding pressure systems for anyone thats interested im welding 316 stainless shim thats 0.003" thick, only slightly thicker than your average household alfoil . And as a side job I do carpet steam cleaning after hours.

Hey all,

My name is Scott, 26 yr old living in Randwick. Moved from Canberra up to Sydney in late 2006.... Work in the city doing IT security consulting.

1st car: Blue Datsun 1200 Ute, A15 with webers that went anywhere and everywhere - that ute was a testament to the absolute hell that you could give to a nissan engine and not kill it!

2nd car: Candy Red Datsun 1200 Ute, CA18DET

I dont get much of a chance to drive the ute unfortunately - it sits the garage and comes out for the weekend and when I make trips to the Gong for work, or back home to the berra...

'Sup, Luke, 26, Kellyville born and bred. I'm a member of the RAAF (Logo).

Currently have two Datto's, I own dat51k's old 1200 ute (slowly making her perfect, never enough time), and building my wife Kirstie a CA18DET powered ute (currently back to bare metal waiting for me to find a free moment to spray it). I used to own a 1200 sedan, complete rust bucket but still a cool ride.

In my heart I'm a ford man, but I just love the old school cool the Datto's provide. That being said, when the wife's ute is finished I'm buying an XP Falcon (don't hate on me, please).
