Sometimes there are droughts. And we have to wait for the rain. And when it comes there is a feeling of euphoria!
So we have been in drought, and recently it rained, and people, including me, are much happier. Only one thing better than that first rain, and thats follow up rain. Hopefully it will be along.

So there are other droughts. There hadn't been a new addition here for quite a while, until a couple of weeks ago when I landed that sweet Wasp. Drought breaker!
Now for some follow up!

You're correct, its not a Wasp.
But I still reckon its cool. You don't see many of these. Had to let it follow me home.
:D Matt.

Yes mate, a Datsun 320, 1200cc 60hp. I guess you could call it a coupe ute. Or a 2 door dual cab. Either way, very cool. 3 speed column shift, with a split bench, so its a 6 seater! Full chassis, with what looks like ton leaf srings. 6 studs, same pattern as Wasp wheels. Built solid. There was one at Classic Yass last year, with a 200b motor with twin carbs.
Sedans were called Bluebirds, and there were plenty of table top single cabs as well as wellback utes. Still see those about.
Isuzu built a prototype Wasp like it, that would have been so good.
Cheers, Matt.

Well done farmer

Initially when I saw it I thought Fiat
But very British tail Lights - copies as they were back in the day

I can almost see a mini with a ute back on it

Not sure if its the amount of alcohol I have consumed

Cheers Flying
