WTH?? 82 Convertible 200sx!!
« on: 08:37:54 PM / 10-Mar-13 »
Hello gang, I received a phone call today in regards to an add I have on CL in regards to looking for Datsuns.

The call led me to a guy in the Chicago area that has had a 1982 "California Customs" convertible 200sx conversion. The car has been in storage for 20 years and made it's way to him via Texas. He said it has substantial sun damage and the top needs replaced. He currently does not want to sell but might be looking to restore it.

Now to my question.. Who is "California Customs"? Was this a common conversion? Now I'll start my search. ;-)

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch

I imagine that's what 90% of the S13/4/5 crowd say about the S12...
