Welllllll,,,,,,, There IS the Mooneyes show in Yokahoma, Japan!!!! Who is up to going to that??? Seriously, it has been written up twice in magazines and has an incredable turnout. I talked to one of the employees of Moon Equipment at Pomona (Calif.) at their booth a few swapmeets ago. He was going and told Me to get in contact with "Chico" who heads it up. I have not yet talked to Him, as I will be going to Milwaukee this year for the 100th anniversary Harley Davidson celebration, but My wife and I (as well as one of You out there) have SERIOUSLY discussed going next year. I am DYING to see a U620 in person and who knows, maybe I'll find one for sale to have shipped back. Yes, I am a sick man and just haven't got enough Datsuns yet!!! Look in Your magazines for "Mooneyes" ads and if enough are interested, let's start planning a trip with Moon next year. You only live once!!! Later, Mike

...besides the one I already mentioned in Port Townsend? I don't think there are any other Nissan only shows. You can check with Northwest Nissan, but they are mainly a bunch of 240SX owners. They do like to have old Datsuns show up to their little shows.

Nothing is quite like BlueLake. That was a huge show and all old school!

Bleach are you going to get that 620 moving for next years Blue Lake show? Keep us inform of any show up in the north. I'd like to drive up that way and have time to hit up Sea-town for some fun...I'd also like to see that cool Dime of Hainz and his nice truck....may the lot of datsunaholic trucks... I need a 5-speed for my 620 and have heard there are some in the yards up there. I've stuffed a lot of parts in my Dime for transport included a tailgate for a S10 Blazer, you should of seen the guys at the local JY watching me stuff the gate into my 510, it was very interesting. I think I have room to bring back a extra tranny....

Next year's show? The 620 might be painted by then. Its moving, just not idleing well. I took it out on I-5 last night and did a 30min drive. Did great untill I slowed down to turn back south.

Meeting of the Mindz in Port Townsend is in August. Then the show in Vacouver, BC in Sept.

If you want to do a little drive / picnic, the Z-car club of Washington is teaming up with the NWDE next weekend. 28th of June. Should be fun.

I'm not sure about the passport.

Yes, I will break down and clean it up. I drove it for a couple hours today. It seems to be running rich all the time... so I'm pulling the carb tomorrow morning.
