This Blog is the odyssey that is my vintage racing habbit. We will post write ups and photos from our racing events, discuss repairs and modifications of my Datsuns, discuss racing organizations and get in a little bench racing to boot.
This is for those who are interested in vintage Datsun race cars. Being bitten by the race bug has changed my life, and this blog is for those who are interested in coming along for the ride. I have always been into cars, and have owned many different cars, but was impressed by the design, durrability and reliability of Nissan Datsun products since the early 80′s. In one form or another I have owned at least one Datsun or Nissan for the last 25 years and this blog is dedicated to my racing odyssey to share the trials and tribulations of maintaining racing repairing and enjoying vintage racing cars in Southern California.
Hi, I’m Ron Carter and I own a small internet hosting company based in Southern California. I have raced my Datsun Roadster for the last 5 years with GRL, HMSA,VARA and HSR-West. I went to driving school at Laguna Seca raceway in Monterey in the 80′s and have done some driving instruction at California Speedway for a couple of track day clubs.
Some seasons I have raced almost once a month, and some once a year. I am currently restoring a Datsun 510 “B” Sedan car with history back to 1970. I avidly race my 1967.5 Datsun 2000 Roadster (Serial # SRL 000305) and maintain a Datsun BRE #46 240Z Tribute car.
I have been married for 14 wonderful years to my wife Gretchen, who is the CFO of a “boutique” broker/dealer in Southern California and we do not have kids, we have a Great Dane named Katie.
