Datsun Roadster History

I thought may be with the off season bogging things down around here even more than normal, I'd throw out (what I think is an obscure but of Datsun racring history that came up in the Nostalgia forum over at autosport.com. About a quarter of the way down in the link is Elouise Norton in Ray Brewer's 1500 in the 1966 SCCA season at Green Valley, Texas.

Great photos on that link.

I found more information on Brewer's efforts at Datsun.org.

He was mounting his campaign just behind Bob Sharps.

I do love looking at old racing pics like this....thanks for the link.

Yep, it's off season yet I'm still thinking about how to make the old girl faster. New engine build in progress and thinking of new suspension mods...namely, stiffer front bar and lower ride height.
