Welcome to the start of my addiction. This was my very first car ever, a 1980 Nissan (Datsun) 200SX. I think I paid $700 for it.
It was blue when I got it.
It had a little rust, but some bondo took care of that.
I drove it around with primer for a long time. I finally
decided to paint it myself, but screwed it up so bad, that I had
to take it to a shop. I called every place in the book until I found one that would
do the job for the $200 that I had saved in quarters throughout the year. Yes, I
really did pay in quarters.
I had it painted 6 hours before "senior week" in Ocean City. I drove it there
3 hours, still wet. Oddly enough, I didnt have much road debris stuck in the paint
like I thought I would.
That then runs to 4 Pioneer speakers, and to a $30 JCWhitney amp, which powers......
.......2 fifteen inch subwoofers from Radio Shack.
OK, so I was 16. I was a little more concerned with making sure the system
looked good, rather than sounding good. I dont even think the subs ever really
worked. The Pioneer speakers on the deck were loud enough where I couldn't really tell. There was no cross over, the amp was cheap, there were too many
things wrong with it to mention.
But wait, it gets better. Yes, thats right, what good is a TV without an Atari?....
All in all, this was a great car. I had to sell it once I was in college and out of money. When I sold it I had to take all the gear out, because as cool as it was, it didnt make the car any more sellable.
