Datsun Classes


How to decide what class your car should be in.


Before the After Class (Un-restored Roadsters or Pre 1974 Datsun):

May need tetanus shot before getting too close--only kidding. Car must be a Datsun of 1973 or earlier production. Car should be a work in progress but not yet painted or chrome redone. Minimum requirement-car must have some work started on it whether it be the cars mechanicals, body, or interior. Slow, steady progress is fine. What can you do in this class to win? Well, you can either do nothing and let the car speak for itself or you can do a short write-up of what you have done and what you plan to do. Either way --good luck.
