The Story

I bought the car in fall 2018 with my best friend Jon (@jonnyskatez) as a project for us to learn how to work on, restore, and modify cars. Over the course of the last (almost) 3 years, we have been working on restoring this classic and saving it from its almost certain fate while also adding our own flare. Everything that has been done to this car was done by us while learning along the way (which is why it also breaks down every other day but its an old nissan so you'll have that). The signatures of all our friends who have helped us along the way are written along the dash so huge thank you to all those guys.
