A bit depressed by the setbacks , and not being able to do any heavy work , and even my summer-ready boat trapped by the cherokee on jackstands in the workshop i needed a win .

I see others in here on occasion share their non jeep toys , so i will share one of mine , as it is my only car related achievement this summer .

As it was a low hanging fruit as of completing a task on the list ,
i got my -71 Datsun 240Z out of storage and put it through bi-annual inspection. it has not been inspected since 2009 , and not been in use since 2011 .




It only took two new lightbulbs , oil change , one exhaust clamp and running the engine and brakes hot , and it passed inspection .
As it passed 50 years of age last year , this was its last inspection ever
This is actually my very first car . I got it when i was 17, (one year before i can get a drivers license in Norway)20 years ago and have loved her ever since .





Also in last picture is my "running errands around town" truck.


Sorry for the off topic post .
I will try to stick to jeep related content from now on

Small world, was just talking to my 25yr old son about 240Zs today, after I saw a 280Z with a 5-speed on FB marketplace. Always liked those little Datsuns, they have a great rear end like my favorite 69-70 Mustang Sportsroof (i.e. Mach 1, Boss, etc).

Giving the center caps a rub down.













Anyone know if the front locking hubs had red/blue/white colors ?
Mine seem to have just white letters .

That Opel Blitz is lovely!
My dad would be going all excited when he sees it!
His father did have one back in the days when running a vegetable store.

The Datsun is a awesome looking car!
Always cool when still owning your first car ever!

For a lot of seals is Rockauto a really good option to buy from!
But you have to wait on shipping and have costs at customs.

The hubs were black with white Jeep letters. Just regular Warn hubs with a sticker that says "Jeep" instead of "Warn".

Lookin' really good!
