Default No new here. Previous lurker.

I hope all is well with everyone. I have been around for a little while. I didn't want to chime in since I didn't a Hardbody or Frontier, but now I do.

I just bought it a couple of days ago and now I'm trying to get it sent to me overseas.

1997 Nissan Hardbody Kingcab 5-speed. 68,000 miles

Welcome!

Looks like a very nice D21! And with only 68,000 miles on the engine...WOW! Original miles I'm assuming?

Which state was this hiding in?

It was sitting is South Dakota and amazingly enough, rust free. It does have minor hail damage, but I have nothing but time to fix that.

It is a retirement gift to myself after 28 years of service in the US Army.

Thank you for publishing the picture. I didn't where I would have been able to do that.

Welcome UJ... Nice truck. Hope you can get the parts you (may) need, there. If not, there still is global shipping.

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

89'HBV6, although I live in Germany, I still have an American address.

APO, AE = Army Post Office, Armed Forces Europe.

It takes around two weeks to receive parts and you are restricted on weight and size. I have been doing this for a while with my 03 350Z and 05 Chevy Trailblazer.

Simple, you posted you pic in the gallery,


copy the link at the top,


then the post card looking icon you will click on that,



paste your link in the space required,


click ok and it will appear in your post.


Of course for me to post this I had to use www.imgur.com

And thank you for your service.

Thank you. That is why I was lucking for a while. In 93 I had a 93 HB Base model. It was a lot of fun, but after a year I traded it for an Altima. This one I'll keep a lot longer. Especially since it is not something that you see much of in Germany.
