    thank you for posting the pictures ,
    that truck looks like good transportation,
    and its certainly fast enough to be fun to drive.

    its hard to believe that a smaller truck weights that much.
    but having owned A 4x4 datsun pick-up I know you right.
    it looks like those exhaust manifolds were designed for angle plug cylinder heads
    that give a bit better ignition wire clearance and less chance of burnt plug wires
