Default Hello everyone

Hi, I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself.


I've been a fan of Nissan for years now (although I didn't always drive a nissan vehicle). Back in 2000/2001, I had a Nissan 810. It's official title was a Dastun 810 by Nissan. I freaking loved that thing. Decked out with power windows, doors and a moon roof...it was a dream to drive. It was a sad day when I had to let it go due to too many things in need of fixing and I couldn't afford to get it fixed.


Years later and to the present day, I came to a decision I needed a truck for many reasons and realized there was a small truck called a D21 made by Nissan. I searched craigslist ads and put the word out in my small network of friends and soon came across an old 89 for sale. I spent a bit too much to get it but I wanted one of these trucks that badly.

It runs quite well and I've done very little to it so far other than getting new tires and a new exhaust pipe but it has a fair amount of rust in the wheel wells. I'm not sure if I should try to find a used bed in better shape or spend the money on getting patch work on it. There are several other issues that need attention but can be done a little bit at a time. No matter what, I really enjoy driving this truck and almost want to sell my other vehicle which was my daily driver for the last 11 years (2001 Honda CRV). Had this truck been a 4wd version instead of just 2wd, there would be no question I'd be selling my CRV and use the funds towards truck maintenance and care.


Thanks for letting me join the forum!
